Contemporary tailor made house

This house is very close to our hearts. It was one of our first projects. It is located on an elevated site with fabulous views over Galway. The brief required a contemporary functional design that made the most of the views. The house is composed of two contrasting volumes, a large elevated upper volume sitting on a recessed base. The upper volume, rectilinear in form, houses the majority of the accommodation. The entrance, located off center, splits this volume into private bedroom and more public living areas. Below the lower level is cut into the ground and contains the utility functions of the brief. The contrast between the two volumes is continued in the selection of different materials.
