This substitution staying is set into a north-bound slope side with all encompassing perspectives of Dublin city. The site is limited on the south by a lush scene.

The building plays between depressed spaces and confined perspectives to the scene. The regular spatial progression is reversed; giving resting settlement on the lower level while living spaces possess the upper floor. The lower floor is orchestrated around a stone patio toward the North and an indented region toward the south, cut into the slope, which permits south light to enter the space and educates the upper level passage. The front entryway is drawn nearer under a cantilevered overhang and the depressed patio is passed, giving a perspective to underneath, before entering the building.

The lower floor is isolated into partitioned room and restroom cells giving perspectives over the slope to Dublin Bay. The more extended hub keeps running from North to South into the slope. Toward the north a coated hall, gives perspectives toward the East, requested by the beat of the timber outline structure. This passage shields and gives access to the rooms and lavatory cells. Toward the south a den and studio space are situated with a hid staircase to the back which gives access to the slope at the upper level of the carport. The short pivot keeps running over the slope toward the West and has full-stature North-confronting coated entryways which open specifically on to the stone patio.

The upper floor is a L-molded in plan to give an upper patio which facilitate emphasizes the perspectives toward the North from the living and eating space and gives a far reaching open air social space. An extra littler open air patio is given off the kitchen by a gallery which juts toward the east. The setup of the upper floor distinguishes the primary living territory as a complete open space which can be adjusted by sliding screens to partition the living and feasting ranges and turn entryways which crease away to uncover the den. This permits the house to work and adjust as required by inhabitance. The sliding screens are put away in a focal center component which contains the focal inner staircase and a chimney. The more serviceable spaces, of utility, and bathrooms are attentively situated and hid inside of the space and timber racking dividers are nitty gritty to give utilitarian stockpiling while advising the spatial course of action.
