Winner Best House Extension - RIAI irish Architecture Awards 2019

Special Mention - AAI Awards 2019

The projectinvolves the re-working of a Victorian house and garden. The existing fabric isretained except for the removal of part of the upper floor to create adouble-height roof-lit space in the centre of the plan.  This acts as a hinge to the extension thatcontains an open-plan living, kitchen and dining space on the ground floor.  The living room extends out into the garden andvisually connects to a new garden room at the end of the plot.  On the first floor the three children share aplayroom that gives access to their compact colour-coded sleeping quarters.
