Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from Bone O’Donnell Architects.
We are shutting up shop for Christmas today and we look forward to hearing from you in the New Year.
SITE UPDATE: MALAHIDE
Full steam ahead on site in Malahide with the complete refurbishment and extension of a cottage in an Architectural Conservation Area (ACA). The programme for this project is tight with practical completion scheduled for September. The brief was to completely refurbish and extend an existing uninhabitable semi detached cottage, orientated North-South, to provide for a 2/3 bed dwelling with off street car parking.
MONKSTOWN FEATURED IN THE GUARDIAN HOMES & INTERIORS
We are honoured to be included in an article on Copper in last week’s Guardian Homes & Interiors Supplement. The project consisted of the sensitive refurbishment and contemporary upgrade of an existing 19th Century Gate Lodge and the addition of a copper clad extension to house a new kitchen, dining and living area. The core of the clients’ brief was to transform the dark internal layout and provide distinct and spacious living areas with a connection to the west facing side garden, which was largely ignored by the existing house.
Thanks to Nick Hay of the Copper Development Association.
