A new home surrounded by an 18th & 19th century brick & stone curtain, punctured by a single contemporary entry-point. The long, narrow, irregularly-shaped site, book-ended by the Ben of Howth to the East and Dublin Bay to the West inform the evolution of a cranked plan whose guest bedroom, kitchen, living & dining spaces twist & fold through the historic site, framing two opposing courtyards before opening onto a terraced garden space. Early morning light arrives into the heart of the home through a double-height glazed screen connecting the front-to-back kitchen & living space & the larger courtyard. A long gallery serving the upstairs bedrooms overlooks this space allowing views of the Ben in one direction and the seals at the end of Bull Island in the other. Re-used brick & stone from the original structure are complemented by contemporary materials such as teak joinery & polished concrete.
