This project breathes new life into a compact artisan cottage in Dublin’s north inner city. Using a strategy of only removing what was dilapidated, we leave remnants of previous extensions, allowing us to re-imagine a new two-storey intervention, like a ship-in-a-bottle within the shell of the old single-storey cottage.
The new materials used outside are machined, metallic and reflective. This draws the beauty out of the ad-hoc disorder of the surrounding Dublin inner-city backlands.
