Poustinia Cabins by Bates Maher Architects


This poustinia cabins at the Glencomeragh House Retreat Center designed by Bates Maher Architects, are located in the valley between the Comeragh Mountains and Slievenamon, Ireland.

Each poustinia is oriented to capture different views over the surrounding countryside and to give a variance in sun light as the day progresses. A circular path connects the poustinia to the main house and a network of paths and ponds that also lead to riverside and woodland walks.

The inner space is created to encourage contemplation and meditation. A day bed opposite the window overlooking the wider landscape, allows rest to be enhanced by the enjoyment of the view.
