Located between Terenure and Rathgar, this 1930s Art Deco house was refurbished and extended to provide bright living spaces with retaining the original charm and features that make the house special.
With a North facing orientation to the rear, the challenge here was to bring as much natural daylight into the house as possible. A large floor-to-ceiling fixed window fitted between the kitchen counters and island creates a bright kitchen space. High glazed double doors extend up as the ceiling is raised to capture the end of the summer evening sunlight. Sliding doors between the dining space and original sitting room are reinstated to allow light and views through the full width of the house as the new layout allows spaces to flow from one to the next. In the dining space, feature plaster splays focus your view towards the garden and incorporate narrow bookshelves, pairing architectural interest with practical functionality. To the front elevation, a feature brick surround around a new hall door gives new life and presence to the Art Deco style house. A new curved brick planter and entrance step references the unusual curved bay window.
