STRAWBERRY HILL - CORK CITY

A reinforced concrete box clad externally in timber defines this house. The site is on a hill in the inner suburban area of Sundays Well, with Strawberry Hill forming the eastern boundary.

 

The elevated site has outstanding southern views across the Lee Valley to the University and the city beyond. In order to maximize light and views, the house is organized into 2 levels where the sleeping areas are located in the more enclosed space on the ground floor and the living area is in the open plan first floor. The internal use of materials such as exposed concrete contrasts with the natural external materials of timber and stone.

 

This building won a Commendation for in the RIAI Irish Architecture 2010 Awards.
