It’s on (or just off) Anglsea Road in Donnybrook – it backs on to the Dodder River (between Donnybrook Chuch and the R.D.S./Simmonscourt Road). Nice job!

Would you believe that was my guess? Image No.5 on the website suggested it to me as a location- it’s the profusion of trees (esp. in the image above) combined with the angle of the houses to the rear and the style of the house to the front.
Should have had the confidence to stick my neck out. 🙁
Quite Peter Zumthory up close, no?

Is that the Licensed Vitners Assoc.HQ building in the background? haven’t been up that way in a while, idyllic spot.

I spotted this one on my Saturday morning trips to the ESB Sportsco. Actually got nabbed by the new occupants a few weeks ago when having a peak over the back wall [apologies if you’re reading this. Didn’t know anybody had moved in]. Certainly there has been no expense spared. The cut stone alone must have cost a pretty penny. Slightly Zumthor-ish, at least on the ground floor level with the stone walls. First floor is probably a bit extravagant for Mr Z, all glass and shine.
As I made an oath to always be in favour of any build that doesn’t scrimp and tries something different, it’s a thumbs up from me. But maybe just a single thumb.
Okay sports fans, here’s another: Do you know where this is? (the background may give it away)
Answers on a postcard please…..

background makes it WAAY to easy-you should have phototshopped out the dome!

I was hoping people would be distracted by the dog in the car in the foreground. Photoshopping seems just too much like hard work for this time of night.
Aside from the quiz tomfoolery, there’s no harm in using this thread to detail some of the houses built in the last couple of years that deserve a wider audience. I’ve always liked this one, from an area not too far from the above:
Or maybe it’s just a desire to be able to afford to buy round here. Oh, such is life!

I cycle past the copper one every day and it never fails to make me smile a little if I glance up the lane.
Haven’t seen your second one in the flesh, but I like it from the images I’ve seen.
Who did the first one? I’ve often wondered. The second one was Tom de Paor if memory serves.

Bates Maher did the copper clad house I believe…
That dePaor house is pretty fantastic, exactly the right balance between context and radical design. i’d love to get a nosey round the interior…
