Located on a corner site at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this rear extension to a small 1930’s semi-detached house works with the geometries of the site.The architects extended the house to accommodate a new kitchen and dining area at ground floor level and a new bedroom at first floor level. The dining area opens to the south-west for daylight throughout the afternoon while the kitchen has a more westerly aspect providing daylight into the evening. In the garden, ground levels were manipulated by the use of external planters to frame a seating area, while at the front of the house the main entrance was relocated to allow the existing living room increase in size.

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