A refurbishment & extension to a red brick Edwardian terraced house by Bone O’Donnell Architects features in today’s Irish Times Property supplement.
The focus of this project 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 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.
We are delighted to announce that Morehampton Road has received an Award at this years Opus Architecture and Construction Awards.
The project consisted of the refurbishment and extension of an Edwardian red brick terraced house. 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.
Morehampton Road features in this weekend’s Sunday Times along with other Award Winners.
Bone O’Donnell Architects’ project for the transformation and copper clad addition to a 19th Century former gate lodge in Monkstown has been featured in a review of contemporary Irish houses and extensions by Vincent Ducatez, published in the current issue of Architecture Ireland.
The works involved the removal of the existing entrance porch and a chimney stack and two small rooms at the garden end opened up and lowered to provide a living area.
The extension is positioned to maximise the potential of the site and the existing house in terms of the orientation, garden, privacy and rationalisation of the internal layout. It contains a new kitchen and dining area and is connected to the existing house through a timber clad glazed link with sliding screens creating a flexible open plan living space. This link sits unobtrusively underneath the roof of the existing house, provides a new entrance, circulation area and connection to the garden.
