Dalkey, County Dublin
A new house for a retired couple replaces a bungalow which existed on the same site. The new dwelling utilises a large pitched roof profile with terracotta tiles, echoing the original and adjacent houses. The triangular site led to the decision to add additional space to the front of the house. This is achieved by adding a smaller, pitched roof structure, or pavilion, which houses a guest bedroom. All rooms enjoy a different view of the gardens, which will be landscaped in various ways to include an orchard, kitchen garden, lawn, patios, dry garden and wild garden.
