D gallery residence
Dublin 2002

This newly built private gallery and caretaker residence, 1000 m², is located on a cliff, facing the Irish Sea.

 

The rich vegetation partially conceals the new construction, which stretches 89m longitudinally.

 

The roof and fl oor are, graphically speaking, two horizontal lines which mirror the sea-horizon and pierce through the trees like shooting lines directed towards the infinite.

 

Expansive clear glass along the entire front of the building is the main source of daylight.

 

The inner space is rationalised in such a way that one remains in constant visual contact with the surrounding nature, whatever the activity or time of day.
