Steep WEDGE House is a family home ( 160 sq.M ) set into a small sloping site in Douglas Cork . The site is compromised by two existing wayleaves which restrict the area available to a small wedge shaped space. As a result there were several previous unsuccessful planning applications on the site before we were appointed for the project. Our solution proposed maximising the unconventional shaped footprint with a split level form. Living spaces are on both levels to maximise the sun-path and also give generous access to the lower level garden space.
