Odos Architects' Dwelling at Maytree

October 26, 2010 · Posted in Architects 

Project Description:
Set at the foot of a steep escarpment in the wicklow hills, this house, with it’s elevated living accommodation, allows the fluidity of the surrounding landscape remain uninterupted, whilst also giving the occupant a raised vantage point from which to engage with nature.

That quote is taken from Odos’ website, and I couldn’t love the vocabulary more.  “Escarpment,” “Wicklow,” and “whilst” mean that you’re not talking to an American.  But what a beautiful house.  I love the fireplace because it’s been left so clean, and the windows are top-notch.  I have to admit, the Transformers aren’t a bad touch either.
