Miles Sampson Architects are delighted to announce that our project for a new house overlooking Dalkey Island in South Dublin has been granted planning permission by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council and the decision upheld by An Bord Pleanala. The narrow site sandwiched between two existing houses presented a number of challenges including dealing with extreme changes in levels, overlooking, daylight, neighbouring properties, varied building lines, varied roof lines, etc. The successful design overcame these challenges resulting in a contemporary building that fits into the character of the existing street.
In addition, the house will be constructed using sustainable principals such as Photovoltaic (PV) roof slates, green roof, rainwater harvesting, permeable paving, passivhaus levels of energy performance, etc. Building to passive house standard ensures that the house will remain energy efficient for many generations to come.
