Existing Building – two storey detached  1950’s house overlooking the Boyne estuary

Extension- Brief was to maximise daylight & solar gain, relocate the front entrance from north facing  gable and remodel the interior of the house.

Design solution was a curved single storey zinc clad extension which contained a new front entrance, sunroom  and utility room, which has a completely different identity from the original rectangular shaped two storey house.

This original structure was renovated internally and externally, finished in white render, with new slate roof finish, new aluclad windows, the existing front entrance was remodelled as a zinc clad bay window.

The curved wall of the extension  follows the sunpath from east to west, thus maximising solar gain.
