House on the beach, Dublin Bay

This family house stands on the edge of the beach to the north of Dublin Bay, availing of wide southerly views across the water to the city and the mountains beyond. The carved stone volume of the upper floor develops these 180 degree views without loss of privacy to the bedrooms, whilst the ground floor opens out to the garden, bounded by perimeter courtyard walls retaining the dunes to the beach beyond.
