House 4

This new-build house is located in a semi-mature housing estate typical of Dublin's outer suburbs. The site is located in the side-garden of an existing corner house. The laying down of the housing estate, consisting of a series of similar housing types, in the late 1970s has resulted in a coherent and robust architectural context. This new house seeks to balance the desire to engage with this context while also differentiating itself from the surrounding typologies by being specific to its place and time.
