Two houses built on a tricky site in Sunday’s Well have been shortlisted for a prestigious architecture award.
The chic homes, designed by O’Donnell + Tuomey, are located on a site which slopes steeply from Sunday’s Well Road to the north to the marshland of the River Lee to the south.
Both buildings boast uninterrupted views, private landscaped gardens and private courtyards, as well as slick fixtures and fittings and unique flooring.
The development is one of five shortlisted for the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) Irish Architecture Awards in the ‘Public Choice’ category. Also included within the shortlist are:
- Refurbishment of former Cork Savings Bank for Cork University Business School of University College Cork, designed by Jack Coughlan Architects.
