PALMERSTON ROAD

Extension To A Victorian House, A Protected Structure

Location:Palmerston Road, Rathmines, Dublin 6

Status:Under Construction 2014


Client:Private

The brief for this project, a two storey over garden level semi-detached redbrick Victorian dwelling, was to reconfigure and extend the existing garden level to create a bright open plan family area incorporating kitchen, dining & living spaces and to improve the connection of this level with both the main part of the house and the rear garden.

The existing garden level was opened up & the rear wall partially removed for a new family area and utilities whilst also providing a more generous & light filled connection with the main entrance level, which gives direct views out to the garden.

A new brickwork extension, opening out to the garden on all three sides and rooflit to allow light into the depth of the plan, contains the new kitchen and dining area and is connected to the existing rear wall of the house by a glazed link which allows the existing brickwork to the rear wall to remain visible internally.

The proportions of the extension mirror those of the existing reception rooms located on the entrance level of the main part of the house ensuring that the new build sits comfortably with the existing structure and allows for a seamless transition from the old to the new when moving through the house.
