Brides Glen Road
Size : 10 Houses
Completion : 2016
Detail : Private Housing
Glencarraig is a unique development of 10 houses in Brides Glen Road in Rathmichael, Co. Dublin. The houses are all 5 bedroom detached houses over 3 stories with a floor area of approximately 3,000m2 each. The houses feature natural slate roofs, timber “rationale” windows, a rendered wall finish with stone surrounds. The houses have been described as contemporary in layout as well as traditional in appearance.
The houses feature an A2 BER rating. This has been achieved with the use of extensive insulation, an air to heat pump for space heating and high performance windows. Air tightness also helped to achieve the excellent energy performance.
The site is accessed via a new access road which had to be constructed from the existing Brides Glen Road. The site is elevated and from the upper levels has views of the Irish Sea. At the centre of the development a landscaped open space provides for a children’s play area, which retains many of the natural woodland features that existed along the boundaries.
