House in Monkstown, Co. Dublin

The project is for a new single story house at Monkstown Co. Dublin. The site is an exiting mature private walled garden to the side of an existing Georgian House.

The concept for this design was to create a modern, single storey house which existed in harmony with an existing walled garden, beneath the canape of existing mature beach trees.

The accommodation includes an entrance hall, library, large living and dining space, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen and utility room.

The house is expressed as three elements of various heights, with circulation spaces and living spaces situated in the open space between the solid elements. Large sliding timber screens allow the flow of light and space into the existing mature garden.

Materials include rendered concrete, aluminium and timber.
