New House, Rathmines The form of this one-off house is in two blocks. The first is a three storey render volume containing the living spaces and the second is a brick volume containing the service and circulation areas. The brick volume is set back to allow for a set of concrete steps which rises up to the main entrance level of the house, 2 metres above the street. The use of materials in their natural state â€“ sand and cement render, brick, mill finish aluminium rainwater goods, concrete steps and hardwood windows provides a contemporary form on a street of traditional house.
