The Museum is housed in a striking modern building next door to the historic Turlough Park house in beautiful West Irish countryside.

 

Many of the artefacts on display are organic and so have to be displayed in light levels of less than 50 lux. But it was essential to have views out of the building so the countryside that inspired the artefacts could be seen.

Sutton Vane Associates developed a series of screens that allowed visitors to see the views and feel as it they were in the open country while adhering to the required maximum light levels.

The solutions developed appear as a case study in “Daylighting” by D Philips.
