这所房子的位置位于一个面向死胡同的现有房屋的后方，向西延伸到 Rathmines 教堂的圆顶，并间接地向北一直到大运河。
东南向的景观和光线受到场地限制和市议会规划政策的限制。客户对建筑有着深刻的了解和深切的兴趣。 他们全面参与了项目并进行了漫长的讨论。 我们集体考虑了非常舒适的想法，不仅仅是为了创造一个稳定的热环境，或者再现已知和熟悉的场景，而是作为居住者在光和影的不同性情和习惯来使用，观看城市景观和天空的内部反射，并进行颜色变化，开发出以“精确”进行的极小的简单性。
Engineers : Downes & Associates
From the architect. The site of this house is located to the rear of an existing period house facing onto a cul de sac, offering views west to the dome of Rathmines church and indirectly north to the grand canal.
Views and light to the east and south were restricted by site constraints and city council planning policy. The clients are greatly informed and deeply interested in architecture. There were lengthy discussions with their total involvement in the project. We collectively considered idea\'s of comfort as not just to create a stable thermal environment or reproducing the known and familiar but as the capacity or disposition of the occupants to experience different situations with regard to light and shadow, to space that may bear the between, to use, to views of and to the urban context, to views of the sky, to exterior and interior reflections held within and to colour change in developing ?a minimal tough simplicity to be carried out with \'exactitude\'.
The house takes the form of an inhabited light scoop,to provide spaces for refuge and prospect and extends between two outside rooms, a ramped entrance court with a small? water pool to slow and dissipate the city and a roof terrace, a place to perch and capture sunsets and the local city skyline. At once without and within, forming the kitchen and dining mezzanine on second, living and study on first, bedrooms and bathrooms on ground and clad with untreated copper and lime washed maple. It is held between rendered peired walls, with niches and voids that house kitchen, wardrobes, wall beds, storage cabinets, library, toilet and natural / artificial lighting.
Flamed Limestone is laid throughout the ground floor and entrance court with sliding clear/ opaque glazed partitions defining the bedrooms and bathrooms. Sapele strips are laid on the roof terrace mezzanine and ceiling to first floor.
