Sensitive home in protected landscape
This project is for a new house on a spectacular site by the sea in Wexford. This site is located on a headland, contains a Norman wall and in a protected scenic amenity area. The challenge was to deal with the conflicting objectives of getting planning permission while designing a home that made the most of this site. The form of the house is a response to the local environment, its orientation, the adjacent Norman wall, and its prominence in this area of natural beauty. Low, to avoid the prevailing wind, it is designed with a marsh grass roof to increase thermal efficiency and link it with the ground. The form enables a public entrance courtyard on its north side and a private southerly facing garden on its south side.
