There seem to be so many great renovation projects and architectural restoration work being done on old structures these days. This particular cottage salvaged by the talented folks from LOCAL architects turned this rundown cottage into an amazing modern painting studio and travel getaway. The County Cork Painter’s Studio, named for it’s location in Ireland has a beautifully preserved and unique stone structure and small windows typical to this structure. LOCAL made a key decision to make the house more one with it’s natural surroundings and to flood the house with light by turning the two ends of the house into nice open glass walls. They also have windows for great cross ventilation.
