Design Guide for Rural Northern Ireland
Traditional Qualities

Much of the character and quality of the countryside in Northern Ireland stems from the presence of a range of traditional buildings, local styles and local materials.

Buildings have evolved in response to their setting and their function on the land and have become familiar features of our rural environment. New buildings should respect that long-established link and not attempt to dominate the landscape.
