Origami House - Vertigo


This BER A Rated house in Cork, known as ‘The Origami House’ is designed by Keating Architects and installed by Complete Building Solutions. The plot of land was an old entrance, 4 metres at its widest point. Through clever architecture and design, an incredibly beautiful and unique home was created. A diagonal geometry hat set a fractured spiral of origami like columns upwards in varying slated terraced roofs to pick up on the local varied ridge lines. The cuts, folds and shifting planes of the building were designed to respect the polar opposite building typologies. Deep cuts for light are subtracted from the dark triangular forms to both frame a view and deliver deep light trenches into the building.
