Dalkey, County Dublin

A new promenade is formed through garden, house, rock and sea, restoring this protected structure to a beautiful, light filled and playful single family home. Through carefully considered interventions, the walker is invited to form connections with the historic built form, the site and the natural beauty surrounding it, facilitating isolation and contemplation or connectivity and gathering, concluding at the 1st floor terrace with beautiful views out to sea. The contemporary addition is poured on the rock below, it cranks and turns and is finished in a calming palette of fine dash, weathered larch and steel. This home is now A2 rated and is much loved.
