Pavilion House by Robert Bourke Architects
Designed in 2019 by Robert Bourke Architects, this contemporary pavilion house is located in Dublin, Ireland.
A new house for a couple replaces a bungalow which existed on the same site. The new dwelling utilises a large pitched roof profile with terracotta tiles, echoing the original and adjacent houses. Exposed, board-marked concrete is used for the retaining walls of the gardens and the chimney breasts, which are structural elements that support the main roof. A mezzanine living room has a large window overlooking Dublin Bay and views over the ground floor living spaces. The exposed Douglas Fir rafters of both roofs are lit by large roof lights, creating warm and atmospheric spaces.
