The Project

This project involved the provision of contemporary extensions as part of the restoration of a listed Georgian house. The extensions, while being contemporary in nature, complement the existing Georgian house without compromising the requirements of modern day family life.
 

Location:
Dún Laoghaire, Co. Dublin
Architect:
Dublin Design Studio
Private home exterior
The extension is composed of three elements, varying in height and form, which wrap around the existing house.  A single-story zinc and timber clad volume containing the open plan kitchen and living area is separated from the existing house by a glass link that encloses a new west facing rear courtyard.  This part of the extension is separate from but runs parallel to the existing house and the pitched roof was designed to reflect the existing pitched roof but clad in zinc to highlight its contemporary nature.

The glass link between the new pitched roof extension and the original house was designed to be a low key minimal connection to the existing house.  It is a very ‘light touch’ intervention to the existing house and involved very little disruption to the fabric of the protected structure.

The two-storey timber clad extension to the gable extends the master bedroom at first floor and the study at the ground floor and helps contain the new west facing courtyard. This extension was designed to complement both the existing house and the new extension to the rear Dublin Design Studio
