O'Connor House

The house is located on a south facing sloping site looking towards the Dublin Mountains. The design respects the orientation by keeping all non-habitable and work uses along the north side, using a solid brick expression, punctuated as required, with the living areas to the south overlooking the parkland landscaping of the site.

The structure is of steel and spans from the northern load bearing wall onto steel columns that enclose the balcony that runs the entire length of the house.

The main living room projects as a cantilever over the falling ground, so taking full advantage of the falling site and views.
