Located in Dublin, Ireland, this 18th century 2 story home was dilapidated and in need of a complete overhaul. Kingston Lafferty Design transformed this dump into a dream. Extensive structural works were required to support both the existing and proposed structures and to retain the neighboring properties. The main objective of the interior design was to maximize the space available and direct as much natural light as possible into the existing property. The entire basement floor level was reduced to improve floor to ceiling height and the rear garden was extensively excavated to allow for the construction of a large conservatory extension. A tiered garden was designed to increase the quality of natural light entering the basement level. The linear forms and raw materials create a contemporary space which juxtaposes beautifully within the period features of the original property and the traditional style conservatory.
