Malahide Co. Dublin Conservation Renovation
When Ian Black Architect was commissioned for this project, the original internal layout had been redesigned by a previous owner, and consisted of a maze of small unusable odd, shaped rooms. Most of the internal period features had been removed. The internal renovation works undertaken by Ian Black Architect were essentially a restoration of the large original room layout with a few minor alterations for modern living, the contemporary interior is laid out in two wings each side of a new central glass roofed atrium to admit natural light into the central circulation zone of the house, linked by a feature glass bridge across the entrance hall. A floor was partially removed to achieve a double height volume in the kitchen /dining room, all internal joinery is white oak, internal doors are storey height. The exterior was repaired including the repair of existing sliding sash windows, render wall finish, roof finish etc. The renovation was featured in the Irish Times Property Supplement.
