KILDARE HOUSE

 

"A slumber did my spirit seal; 

I had no human fears: 

She seemed a thing that could not feel 

The touch of earthly years. 

No motion has she now, no force; 

She neither hears nor sees; 

Rolled round in earth's diurnal course, 

With rocks, and stones, and trees."

William Wordsworth, A Slumber did my Spirit Seal (1798).

This proposal is a for a family house located outside Naas in County Kildare. The design consists of a number of geometrically arranged elements that twist to the outline of the site whilst generating expansive views of the surrounding landscape. A number of overhanging roof elements negotiate between the interior and exterior spaces of the house, and thereby increase the relationship with the site.
