Protected Structure and Residential Conservation Area

Located near the centre of Dublin this project called for the refurbishment of an early Victorian house, the addition of a garden room and the re-working of the southwest-facing garden to provide an external terrace. The addition is read as a box and is clad in satin anodised aluminium panels. There is a continuity of expression so that large sliding screens read as walls and vice versa.

Fixed glazed screens are placed between these solid panels to complete the enclosure. The intention was to allow a spatial flow from the dining area through the kitchen into the garden room. A retaining wall runs across the width of the garden forming both the wall of the terrace and the garden room. The sliding screens can be manoeuvred into different positions depending on use and light.
