Drawing inspiration from the region's stone buildings and grassy marshlands, the Meadow Dance House is a modern ode to its native Ireland. The dwelling is comprised of two stack structures. Its ground floor is clad in a mixture of local yellow sandstone and grey limestone and houses the interior's main living space. Perched above the tall grasses, the second story is covered in planks of oak and beech wood, mimicking the colors of the surrounding fields. The intersecting volumes create a double-height parlor space that leads up to the bedrooms. Floating above the meadow, the master caps the upper level and features a glass facade to catch views of the bog in the distance.
