Ballynacarrig, Wicklow

New House : 340m2

Located on a steeply sloping site overlooking Brittas bay the buildings are focused around a small external courtyard that acts as an intimate outdoor room set around a fireplace. The courtyard is set below the level of the road and accessed by a short flight of steps. Three independent volumes express themselves above this made ground, the living room that faces to the view over the bay with a glazed kitchen located immediately behind the large free standing chimney breast, the guest bedroom block and a study. All of these rooms can be accessed separately from the courtyard. Below on the lower level are the family bedrooms and a small living room. Three staircases rise to serve the volumes above, the lower level uniting the house as a whole. A fourth external stairs connects to the pathway that leads down to the beach below.
