This house and studio is located in a backland brownfield site in Kimmage. The site was a former joinery workshop which extended to the four sides of the site. The old walls of the workshop were retained and reinforced to provide an enclosed garden. The architecture emphasises discrete moments within this garden. Piers and colonnades make the interior and offer covered spaces on the edge of the garden. Bedrooms are incorporated behind planters and parapets to minimise overlooking while maximising light. The garden will grow over time to cover walls and colonnades for a lush interior landscape.
