House at Broadford, Limerick
The Challenge To design a family dwelling with a modern layout to cater for a busy home.
The Solution Narrow plan form was given to the main block of the house. This block housed a kitchen, dining with pantry and plant room adjacent. A living room located to the west side of the house is partially separated from the kitchen area by the stairs to the first floor. Ancillary accommodation was added in a way that reduced bulk while forming the structure of a solar shading system to help with comfortable living in the rooms that receives suns heat throughout the day.
