The Challenge To design a 2 storey house on a north facing slope.
The Solution Located on the north side of the Boggeragh Mountains, this 5 bedroom three storey house was going to be affected by direct sun light throughout the darkest winter months. We created an annex to the side of the house which allowed direct light to stream into the dining room to the rear and north, subsequently filling the kitchen with natural light. A glass partition was then introduced to close of the entrance hallway and the kitchen, thus reuniting the direct sunlight from the front doorway straight through to the dining room.
