Brook House, Thomastown, Co. Kilkenny, a new community of 5 homes, carved into a steeply sloping medieval street. Once home to the towns tannery master, has been transformed into a new community. The historic house has been carefully conserved and restored. The addition of a modern 21st century layer has been folded into its complex urban fabric, which reveals itself as you pass under the historic medieval archway. A new textured concrete canopy protects and echoes to the beat of its historic waterway. The central courtyard, the heart of this community, provides a space for its residents to flourish.
