House extension and refurbishment

Planning Permission has been granted for the extension and refurbishment to an 1830s terraced house in Rathmines.

The proposed  interventions involve returning the house to single family occupancy and an  extension to the rear to provide some additional accommodation.

An extension at the  Lower Ground Floor level provides much needed light, height and extra space tothe kitchen and dining room at the rear of the house. It also enables the  creation of a space for outside eating to enjoy the garden, which is south westfacing.  A small paved area outside the garden doors is proposed, with steps leading  up to a main lawn and planting beds. A bathroom and WC is proposed in a small  extension at the stair landing level between Raised Ground and First Floors.

The design of  the new extension compliments the main house in its use of matching brickwork.  Slim, timber- framed sash windows are to be re-instated in the main house and  complimented by high quality, slim profile, contemporary powder- coated  aluminium windows in the extension.

A new staircase from the  Lower Ground Floor to the Raised Ground floor entrance hallway to the will  connect these living spaces. It will afford views of the garden from thehallway and bring light through the house.

The two room per floor  layout is to be reinstated on the Raised Ground and First Floors and a further  bedroom provided in the attic level.
