5 new tailor made houses in Wicklow

The project is for two and three houses on sites in Brittas. The clients are siblings. Their sites, located within a development of summer chalets, slope towards & face the Irish Sea. The Coast Road passes above & behind the sites. The views from the road are protected under the Wicklow Development Plan. The challenge was to design houses that were high to avail of the fabulous views & at the same time to avoid obstructing the protected views. The houses are set into the hillside to take advantage of the slope & to reduce the height of the dwellings. The houses appear to be single storey from the west, split level from the north & south, & two storey only when viewed from the east.
