The site located in The Demense Monkstown Co. Cork.
Part of a large serviced site complex intertwined between mature trees and a golf course the existing house needed both an energy upgrade and a new extension.
The concept was to create 3 triangular forms representing stability and home. The 3 forms were juxtaposed to create 3 different spaces including kitchen dining, bedroom and family room. The curved zinc roof provided a new entrance between old and new and a double-height feature with the internal curved roof exposed broke the low ceiling height of the existing house. The upper balcony from the master bedroom allows the owners to step out into the tree canopy whilst taking advantage of the views of Cork Harbour. The overall area including extension 2400 sqft
