Rathgar

This project involved the extension and refurbishment of a Victorian terraced house.

The existing two storey return and existing extensions to the rear was demolished and a new two storey extension built to the rear, separate from the main house, and connected by a two storey glazed ‘link’ forming an internal courtyard between the main house and extension.

The extension to the rear contains a kitchen, dining and family area at ground floor and two bedrooms and a family bathroom at first floor. The ‘link’, as well as connecting the existing house and new extension, contains a utility space, shower room, home office space and airing cupboard/hot press.

The project involved internal alterations and the complete upgrade of the existing electrical, plumbing and heating systems. The project also involved the dry-lining and insulation of the existing house, provision of a solar water heating system and a mechanical heat recovery ventilation system.
