Strawberry Hill House

2007 | Cork City
The Strawberry Hill House is a box on box reinforced concrete home which is semi submersed. This structure plays on the senses, dark to light, intimate and private to public and open. Shea Hartigan produced the detailed design drawings and specifications for this this house. Originally a small garage, the site was quite restrictive and required a strategic plan/section to optimize this site. This restrictive site also required well considered construction details. Great care was taken in the construction of this house to achieve a finished detail from raw construction materials. The minimalist concrete lined interior is wrapped externally in timber and a rubble wall.
