Addresses that space between city centre and suburbs

On the backstreets of the Ormeau Road, No 37 sits apart from the brick built community within which it resides. It addresses that space between city centre and suburbs, and issues of differing family sizes and our evolving accommodation needs over our lifetimes. This playful dwelling, clad in black timber, almost directly abuts the street.
There is joy to be had from the section and resulting elevation, which separates the building into two volumes – one accommodating a tall living/dining/cooking space, while the other houses bathroom and utility storage at ground level and a bedroom above. The building addresses the concern that small living could be claustrophobic by generating views between the spaces and on through the south facing window wall into an outside garden.
