A single-storey residence, nestled into a south-facing, sloped site overlooking the Nire Valley in Co. Waterford. The brief required that the house have a minimal impact on the surrounding landscape and that it use natural materials externally.
The design allows for three internal levels to follow the contours of the site and organises the main living spaces to take full advantage of the south facing views and the available sun path throughout the day. The bedrooms are arranged to the rear of the house with a central hallway connecting all major living spaces.
