Dundalk architect Niall Henry from Dublin Design Studio, who lives with his wife Emma and their three children in a contemporary home he designed in Dublin, has made it through as a finalist in RTE show 'Home of the Year'.
Niall Henry who now lives in Clontarf impressed the judges on last night's show with his home.
The house sits alongside the homes of his wife’s sister and brother also designed by Niall.
Niall had to work within the constraints of a very narrow site and wanted to push the boundaries in design. Large windows were fitted throughout the ground floor of their open plan living area.
Niall stepped up the first floor and pushed it a metre and half back off the ground floor level so there is an overhang above the side garden. Privacy was important in a busy suburban area and the rooms upstairs look back into each other.
