This recently completed mews development consists of 3 mews houses in Dublin, Ireland. The black zinc, curved-hat building with stone gables contains three dwellings which have been strategically planned to maximise light and spatial quality and benefit from a very carefully considered palette of complementary colours and materials.
The black zinc roof could be interpreted as a reference to that of the traditional corrugated iron barn roof both in terms of form and materiality. Internally the curve of the roof is experienced in the double-height space which links the kitchen and living spaces.The internal concrete stairwell with a timber-finned wall acts not only as a physical connector but also allows natural daylight, reflection and shadow to travel throughout the building uninterrupted.
