Green House

Studio Anois , 2019 /
16 Sweetmount Avenue, Dundrum, Dublin 14
Saturday, 11am—4pm

This semi detached property was home to the clients family since it was built in the 1970s. The brief was to create a space suitable for contemporary life whilst respecting the character of this home. Key items such as the brightly coloured sanitary ware and original built in furniture were carefully set aside for reuse in the project. The challenge was not to add more space but to get the existing footprint of the house working better. The ground floor was opened up by moving the bathroom to the front of the house, creating a large bright living space overlooking the park to the rear of the property. A playful exterior comprising of green timber screening and handmade tiles is contrasted by exposed timber joists and subtle natural finishes internally.
