Sandycove, Dublin

Highly Commended - RIAI Architecture Awards 2017

The project involves the refurbishment and extension of a two-storey semi-deatched house. The house is extended to the side and rear in order to transform the garden into a semi-enclosed courtyard. A large steel beam spans across the site diagonally and supports the corner of the original house, opening up the interior to the new court. The structure of load-bearing blockwork walls and steel beams is external and is finished in roughcast render. There is an inner lining of timber studs that is exposed to the exterior in certain places and is clad in aluminium.
