That truly is awful. . my head was spinning after just a minute of viewing it.:eek:
Here's an Irish 'JD' architectural website that provides an impressive design service. .right down to packaging & menus & even web design.

they have had it redesigned a few times in the last few years...
White on white mirage?
It looks very international now...

It seems architects in Ireland are using the foreground middle ground and background now

Um, yaas.

Well, I persevered and I have to say some of the images were worth the pain.

Refreshing off the wall design - a million times better than the square boxes we're blighted with here at every turn.

I never knew STW was responsible for Montrose House on Adelaide Road. Flippin heck. It is nothing like anything the firm ever produced, never mind anything any firm would ever wish to acknowledge as having produced. To think it emerged in the same year as the Port and Docks Board Headquarters. An extraordinary disparity in standards.

New website for http://www.macgabhannarchitects.ie/ ...This practice really confuses me- sometimes there are moments of real quality and content...other times I'm kind of aghast at the obvious application of style (from the Libeskind years), tack and disrespect for the sometimes flat, featureless and wild landscapes of Donegal. In a way I feel like I shouldn't criticise because this is by far the best work being produced in the county...I just wish they were more consistent (maybe modest)

............? Are you ready to stand over such a sweeping and unfounded statement?

Go for it!...what do you find disagreeable about it?.....It's an opinion by the way; and if you look through their website I believe in my (humble opinion) that sometimes the quality is not good. I'm sorry but I believe this aptly titled house to be horrific... http://www.macgabhannarchitects.ie/residential/pig-house/

I find the handful of houses in Donegal by http://www.donaghydimond.ie/projects.html reflect the nature of rural Donegal more appropriately than MacGabhann's ......
