[SMALL PROJECTS 2011 - BEST OF THE REST] Refurbishment of an existing mid-twentieth century terrace house

The brief was to refurbish and extend an existing single-breasted, mid-twentieth century house and flat-roofed galley kitchen.

The original house suffered from a lack of connection with the garden, the original extension negatively impacted on otherwise good orientation. The client holds a keen interest in gardening which effected the design.

The new extension houses a refubished kitchen with an adjoining extension enclosing a 4m² garden room and bench. Its roof is canted to catch and bathe the dark return in sunlight. A window at the lower worktop level forms a space with a view of the garden. It is a veritable cul-de-sac from which the architects explains ‘to observe, enjoy a cup of tea or just watch the birds’.

Start on site date January 2009
Completion date October 2010
Gross External Floor Area 140m²
Total cost €240,000
Client Michael Scott
Architect Ailtireacht
Structural engineer Martin Peters Associates
Main contractor Buto Developers
