House Extensions

The owners had lived in this house for a number of years before they decided to refurbish and extend. The original back kitchen was very small and the house freezing cold. As part of the works the existing two storey extension at the rear has been demolished to make room for a new part two and part single storey extension. This allowed the addition of an en-suite to the master bedroom and created an open plan kitchen, dining, living area on the ground floor. In the course of the refurbishment the house has been internally insulated with Calcitherm boards and under floor heating installed in conjunction with an air to water heatpump.

City Centre Extension

This semi-detached Victorian dwelling stood empty for a number of years before being purchased by the current owners. A radical refurbishment and addition of a two-storey extension to the rear created a stunning, contemporary home. The stepped roofs of the extension with high level windows and an internal light shaft add light in unexpected areas. Stained glass as well as custom built furniture and features add original and organic elements to the interior.

Extension in Salthill

This detached dwelling in Salthill, albeit not small in other areas, simply lacked a decent sized kitchen. A 40sqm ground floor extension was added and made all the difference. The new kitchen/dining room with tall sloping ceilings features two long high level windows which add great light and a view of the sky at all times. The garden was reduced in size but the paved patio and integrated seating and planting are more functional than ever before. This is also due to the fact that a new shed was incorporated into the extension keeping the garden free from additional structures.
