Text description provided by the architects. Michael O'Connor sent us this single family house designed by Garry Miley for a rural site in Tipperary, Ireland. O'Connor + Shanahan architects prepared the detail drawings, brought the project to Tender and onto site for the clients due to Garry's commitments at the time.
The concept of the house was quite simple with a regular pitched roof form building to the roadside which housed the sleeping areas of the dwelling. Behind this building is placed another simple timber clad box structure which provides the living areas for the family taking in the fantastic views afforded by the site.
