Private House

Twenty Two Over Seven
Copyright: Aidan McGrath


The first impression of the building on arrival is restrained and small scale and in reality almost a simple child-like representation of a house gable punctured by two simple deep set windows in a pristine white rendered wall. This simplicity and restraint is part of the building’s appeal. The limited palette of materials chosen by the architect leads to a clean and fresh appearance.

As you move from the front door through the internal spaces there is a pleasing progression from public to private spaces that is handled simply yet effectively. The house was designed to facilitate the ease of movement inside and outside the house for a member of the family confined to a wheelchair.
