Join David Leech Architects on a guided tour of A House in a Garden for Open House Dublin.

This project is a contemporary translation of the ordinary suburban house.
The house is situated in a garden at the end of a short terrace of a 1940’s suburban estate on the edge bounded to the south by an existing privet hedge.

The ground floor layout is derived from the planning requirements for outdoor amenity space. At the ground level the majority of the supporting walls are located within an internal cross-shaped core, allowing a curtain of timber and glass folding doors to wrap the exterior of the house for direct connection and access to the garden.

Meeting point: In front of the house.

Pre-book only.
