New Build - Rathfarnham
The Clients are a young couple needing a new 4 bedroom house. The brief was simple enough in that it was to be open plan, to be energy effecient and to have a mezzanine somewhere in the design.
The budget was modest enough with an initial design budget of €325,000 for the house. This led us to use innovative materiality choices to bring the design in on budget.
The new design was informed by the site constraints and the clients brief, which is modest enough however, the two storey design appears as imposing yet set back into the woodland. Due to the sensitive location of the site, it was important that we designed a house which has traditional rural form, with contemporary detailing to create a very definite statement.
