The project could not be more relevant to our times, as it tackles multiple challenges including how to intensify unused infill plots for new homes, how to build adaptably when facing the fast-changing socioeconomic landscapes during the Coronavirus pandemic, and how architects can lead the discussions of more sustainable construction through rigorous research and risk taking.
The result is a light-filled, efficiently built house using traditional and sustainable materials less commonly found in typical construction. Cork House is a comfortable, hidden cocoon.
