Period HOUSE renovation, Drumcondra
This corner property has two public façades with the main entrance centrally located to the side elevation. Central to this renovation was the creation of a private sanctuary for our clients. Both the original house and site had endured a series of interventions and extensions to create a Bed and Breakfast. Stripping the property back to its original plan form, spaces were enhanced to maximise their inherent quality and character.
A series of thresholds were introduced both internally and externally to give this family the connections they longed for. The materials in the project primarily consist of timber, brick & concrete. Shuttered formwork concrete is used for the junction of the new extension to the old house, to form planters and benches in the courtyard, and power-floated concrete panels, separated by pebble-filled channels pave the newly-integrated walled courtyard space.
This project was selected for exhibition in the 2018 RIAI Awards.
This project has been featured in the Home & Design section of The Irish TImes.
