Period House Dalkey

Alterations and Extension to a Family Home in an Area of Residential Conservation

Work to this house included sensitive alterations and extension of the existing house, full redecoration, insulating the attic and suspended ground floor while maintaining cross ventilation to protect the timbers, window and shutter repairs where necessary & fitted with anti draft brush seals,  a new heating system and electrics, a small extension and new garden layout to the back with provision for parking off the lane.

We provided a full architectural service on this project which inclued achieving Planning Permission in an Area of Residential Conservation.

Bringing in the Light

The extension roof steps around an existing original window and this gave us the opportunity to introduce high level glazing to bring natural light deep into the plan while giving a different view of the garden and sky. 

Work through Word of Mouth

We loved working on this project and were delighted with the results as are the family who live there.  We met this client through an existing client for whom we have carried worked on two projects – including the one we call “Sandycove 1” and the New House in Killiney.
