Sunday 14 October

Within a regular grid and structurally efficient timber roof structure, a new living space is created for a young family with an extension and renovation of a 1940’s bungalow. Beneath this protective timber lattice, lies a brickwork wall, which surrounds and encloses, but never touches the roof, creating high-level openings through which morning sunlight can enter while providing privacy to neighbouring houses. A simple material palette provides a robust yet tactile environment: an alternative take on the ‘single storey rear extension’. This project was Highly Commended in the RIAI Irish Architecture Awards 2018, Best House Extension category.
