Green Walls & Gables is a project designed by Matter. An existing bungalow occupied the site when we were first engaged. The young family of 5 living within required more space and a greater connection to the land. The decision was made to work with the existing bungalow, there was a love for this house, choosing to embrace the inherit constraints. Photography by Simon Devitt.
However the cottage designed by Matter did have a character that they wished to keep and enhance, while doing so reconnecting with the large flat corner site. Cars were a low priority, bikes being the preferred transportation method. Photography by Simon Devitt.
