Refurbishment & Extension To A Red Brick Edwardian Terraced House

Location:Morehampton Road Donnybrook Dublin 4

Status:Completed 2006


Client:Private

This project was for the refurbishment and extension of a red brick Edwardian terraced dwelling. The focus of the intervention lay in the transformation of the existing return with the creation of an open plan extension, it’s connection to the existing garden and to the re-designed external areas.

The internal and external walls of the existing ground floor return, the original maids room above, the existing garden store and landscaping were removed.

The return was extended to provide a three-part open plan area demarcated by the kitchen, the double height rooflit space and the lower level living area. This provides a distinction between the spaces & allows for a flush connection between the internal and external surfaces.

The lines of the stairs & walls in the original hallway were picked up, continued into the extension and used to position the new storage, hallway, kitchen & utility. The extension is pushed out less than one metre to the side of the house to give a generous width & provide a visual link between the new extension & the existing house.

White limestone terrazzo floor is used throughout, on the kitchen units and vertically on the wall in the living area which is continued externally to emphasise the connection between the inside & outside, incorporate the terrace, provide privacy & mark the end of the extension.

The elevation is constructed of an iron oxide coloured aluminium curtain walling with fixed and openable sections to the concrete paved terrace, in contrast to the unpainted render to the original North-East facing façade.
