RANELAGH

Refurbishment & Extension To A Victorian Terraced House, A Protected Structure

Location:Edenvale Road, Ranelagh, Dublin 6

Status:Completed 2003


Client:Private

This project involved the complete refurbishment of and extension to a two storey mid terraced redbrick Victorian dwelling. In particular the brief was to transform the dark and claustrophobic ground floor layout of the existing return, improve the connection to the south west facing rear garden and provide a distinct area for a growing family, which could be separated from the kitchen and remote from the more formal reception rooms in the main part of the house.

The existing chimney breast & internal walls to the ground floor return were removed to open up the space, allow light in and to provide for unrestricted views out to the rear & side gardens.

A small glazed and timber clad extension containing a new family room was attached to the return. The timber cladding of the extension wraps around the existing masonry wall and is turned onto the horizontal to form an external deck flush with the internal finished floor level, which runs back to meet the rear facade of the main house.

A sliding panel screens the kitchen from the family room, from which two steel framed doors open out directly onto the patio. The stone floor continues externally to form the patio and terminates on the vertical to conceal a garden store & plant room.


Floor Area of Existing House:331 M2
Floor Area of Extension:20 M2
Total Floor Area of House:351 M2
