Project Details
  • Title: ICF
  • Status: Under Construction
  • Contractor: Goleen Developments

Designed as part of a larger farm development with stables and a cattle shed, this house is perched on top of a hill on the outskirts of Cork City with spectacular views across Cork County and beyond. Due to the high wind loads, and with the First Floor wall acting as a ‘sail’, it was decided to construct this house in Insulated Concrete Formwork to tie the entire structure together as one concrete mass. The ICF structure also allows for a high level of air-tightness and provides a thermal mass for heat retention.
