The site located off Lovers Walk in Montenotte in Cork.
The site formed part of a collection of serviced sites with different designs on each plot. With elevated views of Cork facing South, we felt that turning the houses back to the entrance road to create a more sheltered and private face to the design would be the approach.
Discreet entrance allows for the vaulted monopitched roofs to expand the view of Cork City for dramatic effect.
Painted Glulams support the large 30 degree mono-pitch which searches out from the site. The Hinge point at the entrance allows for private bedroom spaces on a 2 storey element which is separated by means of an angled hallway. A more private service entrance to the boot room is located behind a curved Liscannor wall to the rear.
