House at Fossa, Killarney

The Challenge To design a single storey family dwelling with attached domestic garage on a long narrow site with houses adjacent on the south east and north west boundaries.
The Solution Given the constraints of the site we located the garage to the front of the dwelling creating a courtyard type approach to the front door of the house. The dwelling was divided into a day and night zone. The day zone was designed with a modern type layout and flow with all living areas interconnected in an open plan type arrangement while having the ability to be close off to private spaces within these larger areas. An open roofed structure encloses the rear patio from the living areas allowing the user to extend the living areas to the outside enhancing and enlarge the living zone with the house.
