Rathmines Project

- Complete Refurbishment of and Extension to a period house in Rathmines.

- Creation of an open plan kitchen/living space and utility room to the rear and additional bedroom and bathroom in the attic space. Emphasis was placed on opening up to the garden and maximizing daylight to new and existing spaces.

- This was achieved by clerestory windows, a rooflight in the extension and by the formation of a courtyard between the new and the existing to retain as much light as possible to the existing reception rooms. The zinc roof of the extension was also curved to reduce its impact on the existing house.

- Improving energy efficiency of the house was a high priority without compromising the fine period details of the house.

- In a tight urban sight the outdoor spaces were treated with as much care as the interior creating a series of outdoor ‘rooms’.
