Rustic House by Urban Agency located in Kerry, Ireland | The Hardt
Rustic House by Urban Agency located in Kerry, Ireland. How to design and build a project that will take a few decades to complete “on time” for its owner retirement plan? In this project, aging and weathering serve as a critical design tool for thinking about how architecture might intercept the changing state of weathering on site. On a sloping rural site with views over the land, the form and orientation of an existing cottage generate two further, similar buildings, which offer a more complete inhabitation of the ground. The first, a south-facing bedroom emerges from the hill; the second, a bathroom with double height shower of traditional Moroccan construction is largely contained within it. The three buildings are connected by a subterranean rooflit corridor whose walls retain the earth. These are sheds, entirely made out of in situ concrete (walls and roofs) and finished with natural rust iron pigments usually used for gardening, making reference in color and form to vernacular construction.
