Stillorgan Extension

The brief for this project was to extend to replace a long narrow kitchen off the dining room and tiny utility with an open plan kitchen-family-dining area opening up on to the deck over the garden which was to be moved out with the extension and larger separate utility room.

 Other minor adaptations were made like a new family bathroom upstairs and redecoration of the entrance hall, stairs, landing and front room to give a sense of continuity accross the ground floor.

 The client is a keen gardener, fortunate to have a lovely long garden and the extension was designed to maintain a strong connection and views to the garden.

Custom made timber windows and wooden floor give a feeling of warmth.  Using the same floor finish throughout the ground floor creates a sense of flow.  Roof lights were included to bring light deep into the house and allow for cross ventilation on warmer days.

Above some before and after photographs.

The resulting extension is spacious, has a lovely connection with the garden and is full of light.
