Over the past 5 years, over 40 former garda stations in Ireland have been sold or auctioned as part of a nationwide station consolidation programme from The Office of Public Works.
Luckily for ourselves, we have been instructed as architects for an ex-garda station that has been bought by a young family in Roscommon.
Set in a long narrow site surrounded by old deciduous trees, the 1800’s building isn’t the best house to be living in, but with minor renovations & adding a modern extension, this can be brought to life, merging old & new buildings, along with retaining the character of the property.
Using local stone, along with clean render & timber cladding with plenty of glazed opening, this will give the family the design & quality of life they are looking for from their home.
This is the second police station we’ve worked in the office, with our Glenarm police station being renovated & extended into a 5 star B&B. . click here
