Scale of Ply
In collaboration with Oikos Furniture.
This remodel and extension of a Victorian house in Dublin 4 uses plywood as a primary and secondary structural material to replace an aged conservatory that acted as the main light source for the ground floor. The prefabricated plywood structure allows for a series of interconnecting triangular plains positioned to allow light deep into the plan as the sun moves through the day. The return of the house is supported on a glulam beam which in turn frames the diagrid structure as the kitchen ceiling.
