Tiny House by the Sea


The site is adjacent to The Murrough Special Area of Conservation and Special Protection Area which is a 15km long wetland site. It is also a Proposed Natural Heritage Area whose policy seeks to conserve and enhance biodiversity, avoid negative impacts on the natural environment and enhance the natural environment as an integral part of design. The proposed conversion is nestled in behind an existing house on Sea Road enjoying the expansive garden to the rear.

The project is socially sustainable in that it allows independent living while also living in close proximity a family home. It is also sustainable in its built form. The choice of timber construction is a direct translation from the surrounding context, also sustainable in its use. The choice of cladding material is fibre cement corrugated sheeting, extended at the eaves allowing water to fall off.
