BLACKROCK HOUSE

Blackrock, Dublin

Area: 350 sq.m

 

This significant private house is on a large landscaped site which includes a stream. The design approach was to protect the site ecology while enlarging the house in a manner which would allow for the future intensification of use of the site. The orientation of the house was explored in detail to make best use of solar gains and minimise envelope heat loss on solar-deprived facades.
