Type. Extension of a protected structure
Description: A two-storey extension and wing to the rear of the existing cottage. The proposed extension consists of living spaces at ground floor level and bedroom with WC at first floor level.
Type. Renovation & Reconfiguration of a Urban Cottage
Status. Completed May 2018
Location. The Liberties, Dublin
This project involved the reconfiguration of a late 19th century cottage in the Liberties to better accommodate a couple living in the city. The existing ground floor bedroom is repositioned to a new mezzanine, enabling the living space to connect directly with the private yard to the south.
This raised accommodation shifts above to form double height spaces below, placing distinct emphasis on the entrance, lounge, dining space and kitchen respectively; while bringing light deep into the plan through newly formed roof lights.
