Crumpled Paper House

Location: Ferns, Wexford, Ireland

Area: 137 sq.m.

Year: 2022

The Crumbled Paper House is inspired by local rocks and their heaviness. We aimed to create a contrasting relationship by introducing volumes that look like crumbled paper.

In this extension to an existing house, lightness and sharpness are explored in the 3 new volumes while the existing gable wall is replicated at the back as if it has always been there.

Inside we played with the ceilings to achieve very unique light-filled spaces.

The proposed design turns a typical 1980s Irish bungalow into a contemporary composition ready to meet our clients’ lifestyle.
