This house was a compact but very unusual Art Deco era house in South Dublin, which was refurbished and extended to just under double the original size.
Originally the house comprised two modest reception rooms, a tiny kitchenette and two-and-a-half single bedrooms, the finished house includes a large kitchen-dining area, utility room, downstairs toilet, four bedrooms and a decent bathroom and master ensuite.
A toplit double-height stairwell brightens up the centre of the house and the rear is animated with a large glazed screen and a bespoke lightbox rooflight so that the rear can enjoy sunshine from earlier in the day.
The new work complements the character and style of the original house. One unusual feature of the original is the use of warm-coloured bull-nosed bricks and clay tiles for the window cills. We have taken this as a theme for the new rear elevation which has a South-westerly aspect.
