One Off House Killineer
This house is located on a north facing site,sloping away from the road with great views of the surrounding rural landscape.
A stone retaining wall which runs from west to east was used to divide public front garden space to north from private open space & rear garden to the south.
Three shallow plan mono pitched roofed buildings with north /south axis and rendered plaster finish are straddled along the length of the stonewall spine, and create a series of south facing sheltered courtyards behind the wall.
Each building has a separate function, ie Garage Block, Entrance Hall & Bedroom block, Living block contains split Level kitchen ,living dining area, and TV room. Circulation routes are kept to the minimum using open plan space.
The front entrance is defined by a timber Pergola which leads from the Garage to the front door .The front entrance hall penetrates the stone wall & provides access to the living & bedroom blocks.
Ground behind the stone spine wall was excavated to create enough space to play with the levels to exploit views & volumes of internal spaces.
A simple palette of natural materials was used, sandstone, slate, render, cedar cladding.
