Summerhill House by Boyd Cody Architects

1300397314-2-1000x794

Situated in Dublin, Ireland, the Summerhill House was designed by Boyd Cody Architects. Customers needed a big house, yet they wanted to make a correct architecture in a rural context. Spaces are well divided in the entire home, having concrete roles for various activities such as entertainment, working, sleeping and places to relax. The design of the house and its rooms is focused on the needs of the family that lives there.

The house consists in two distinct parallels, with a more traditional wood throughout, and a slate covered house which contains the main living room and a smaller bedroom. A double-height space in black, white one storey can be seen from the street and the other is hidden by the hedge. Both views are expanded.

The house is located in a position parallel to the existing coverage and the field around it, that runs passing through levels, walls, doors and surfaces of different applications related to home and family. There is a terrace, sunken and raised lawns, pastures and a patio that blends with the slate used as a coating.
