Split | House

Location: Douglas, Cork

Status: Completed

The split house is set on a small steeply sloping site in a suburb of Cork City. The form of the building responds to the limited space available on site by creating two slender blocks which interlock. The house is essentially a split building form to maximise exposure to the sun and views across a tree lined riverbank behind the site. This split form also presents a discrete single storey building to the road side but expands into a two storey element as the site falls away towards the river.
