FKL Architects designed a single-family house located on a mews lane, in a Victorion suburb of Dublin.
The house is an exploration of diagonal space within an orthogonal form and the possibilities of integrating environmental concerns at a fundamental level.
A concrete tube provides the structural and spatial organisation and encloses the public areas of the house. Divided by joinery elements, the tube of space is twisted between ground and first floor to allow a relationship to the garden and daylight from above. This diagonal spatial relationship between the two floors allows a simultaneous experience of all dimensions of the house, length, breadth, height and extending into the surroundings in unexpected diagonal glimpses.
