Moire Moire Moire : : 3 mews Houses in Dublin, Ireland by ODOS architects

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Article source: ODOS architects

The site for these three mews dwellings is located on an industrial lane way in Dublin 8, previously devoid of domestic life. This industrial setting was instrumental in informing the architectural language of these dwellings. From the outside, the three dwellings appear as a mysterious, robust and impenetrable mass. The cantilevered upper section is a composition of powder coated metal industrial flooring planks arranged in a structural steel frame. These voile like planks have been laid out in varying widths to create a rhythm to the street elevation and have been periodically doubled in depth creating a moiré or interference pattern.

All-Weather House in Mullingar, Ireland by ROEWU Architecture

Saturday, November 5th, 2011

Article source: ROEWU Architecture

ROEWUarchitecture based in London, UK have recently completed a single family home for a retired couple in Ireland. Following the design philosophy developed by the office it was essential to consider all the natural factors impacting the building including wind, rain and sunlight. Instead of treating the building as a defensive shelter, the weather conditions of each season are embraced. A folded organic coat made up entirely of cedar shingles wraps every surface of the building (roof and walls) without interruption. This consistent, arrayed material changes with the climate –glowing and fading with the durations of the weather and the seasons. On wet days it is a bright red colour fading to a soft grey when dry. In frost the individual shingles become outlined in white while in sunshine the folds of the surface become accentuated. The buildup of the surface form multiple individual pieces gives these transformations a pixelated appearance –a kind of digital organic effect.

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Article source: Box Urban architects

client’s requirement

The client asked  box urban architects to provide spacious accommodation for a growing family by extension to a house. Examination of the existing condition in conjunction with the brief indicated that replacing the house would be a more sustainable option.The design brief was to subvert the existing typically suburban spatial condition, to provide for a building of architectural quality informed by its context and provide flexible accommodation for a large family. The design intent was to accommodate best practice in lifetime design to promote physical, economic and social sustainability in a resilient built form with a robust spatial hierarchy.
