  • House at Summercove
  • Architect:
    Michael Scott & Partners
  • Award Year: 1965-1967
  • Location:
House at Summercove


The house, designed on a very steep slope, sits on stilts overlooking the sea panorama. Its concept is simple and despite the obvious lack of economic problems it is executed with rare skill and discipline. Basic material chosen for construction and finish is concrete, which is beautifully formed to make this house enclosure an exceptional contribution to excellence in house design, not only in Ireland but in Europe today.
