ROSE GARDEN

Brief: to design a 300 sq.m. 5-bed family home

The house is designed to sit quietly and blend into its site at the foot of the Dublin Mountains.

The character of the interior is expressed through its rooflit circulation spine and monopitch roof supported by timber beams. The central spinal rooflight brings light and air to the heart of the house, while careful passive design also maximises solar heat gain. The layout tracks the path of the sun. The bedrooms face East to the dawn light, the open plan kitchen/living space opens to the Southerly gardens, while the living room looks to the setting sun. A rich brick base below a self rendered finish supports the sedum roof.

Project completed while Triona was practicing as Triona Stack Architects.
