This project involved the reconfiguration of a late 19th century cottage in the Liberties to better accommodate a couple living in the city. The existing ground floor bedroom is repositioned to a new mezzanine, enabling the living space to connect directly with the private yard to the south.This raised accommodation shifts above to form double height spaces below, placing distinct emphasis on the entrance, lounge, dining space and kitchen respectively; while bringing light deep into the plan through newly formed roof lights.

First-come basis: Just turn up and look out for Open House Dublin volunteers.
