Asgard Road, Howth
This dramatic house was designed to take full advantage of this fantastic site and the views that it offers over Howth. The site slopes steeply upwards from the street entrance on the North of the site to the South with a change in level of in excess of 6m, with a substantial part of the change of level occurring towards the front of the site. The house is very energy efficiency and has a low level of energy consumption. This was achieved through the use of solar water heating and high levels of insulation allowing the internal environment of this large house to be heated by a very small boiler that is rarely required.
The exterior features off-white render, glazed balconies, zinc and a selection of indigenous stones.
