Project Type: 

New Build


Rathfarnham, Dublin



The brief for this project was to design a contemporary dwelling in the rear garden of our clients existing dwelling and sub-divide the site in the process.

The site presented a significant design challenges as it is located in a well established built up area.  The restricted site had to incorporate a new dwelling & garage  with specified requirements for private open space and parking in conjunction with maintained private open space for the existing dwelling.

The house is designed as an L-shaped bungalow with living spaces opening onto a private south facing courtyard. The dwelling also contains 2no. double bedrooms, main bathroom room and utility room.

The low profiled roofs and angled zinc facades give the dwelling a contemporary twist. The existing mature landscaping in conjunction with the shallow pitches roofs ensures the dwelling has a minimal visual impact in the area.
