Farnanes, Cork

The Challenge To design a single storey dwelling in a high value landscape. This challenging site is very steep and had previously being refused permission on the site.
The Solution The proposed dwelling was designed into a day zone and night zone. Both zone's were designed as a narrow plan form. The 2 blocks were slipped to minimise cut into the steep slope with a flat roof link joining the blocks. Slipping the blocks allowed the design to maximise views to the north and gain passive solar heat from the sun path to all living areas and bedrooms. This dwelling is currently under construction.
