Wellington Road I

Extension and refurbishment of a protected structure

Location: Wellington Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin

A two storey over basement brick extension wraps the return of the 1860's terraced house.  The extension basement floor level, containing the kitchen, was dropped to reduce its visual impact while the upper storeys step down from the existing eaves.  The house was entirely refurbished and redecorated. The extension includes a kitchen and dining area opening onto a courtyard garden on two levels, a library on the upper ground floor with new bedroom above. In the main house bathrooms were added and fitted wardrobes installed. Front and rear gardens were landscaped.
