New House in Bree, Co. Wexford
This new contemporary house is located on an elevated site with spectacular views to the east and south. The design solution for this house is a direct response to its hillside setting where the internal spaces have been carefully arranged to avail of the panoramic views. The building form has been divided into 4 blocks to both define the spaces within and to visually reduce the scale of the building and minimise its impact on the landscape. A semi basement storey which is cut into the hillside contains carport and utility spaces, which further assists maintaining an efficient, compact building footprint.
