Overlooking the city and the sea, this unique house is built on a steeply sloping site that backs onto the granite quarry used to build the harbours of Dublin Bay below.
A mix of buff and burnt sienna colour bricks are used throughout the property, characterised by extra wide mortar beds, perpends and flush joints giving a house an almost naïve simplicity of form to contrast with the iron-rich granite hill on which it stands.
