Amanda Levete Architects were commissioned to design a house in Dublin for two art collectors.
The commission includes all the furniture to be designed as one off pieces. There will be just one art work. The driving concept for the house makes dramatic use of daylight to animate what is a very deep space. A softly curved roof surface, perforated with multiple windows of varying diameter, wraps around the house creating a tree-like canopy, filtering dappled light into the Interior.
In contrast the external walls are simple in their austerity. The space Is penetrated by an elliptically shaped courtyard.
