Georgian House South Dublin

We delivered a complete upgrade to this large end-of-terrace Georgian house in Co. Dublin, carefully adapting and modernizing a protected structure to cater for family life.

As much as was possible, we worked with the original footprint of the building. As a project that needed significant modernization in terms of rewiring and replumbing, so staying faithful to the house structure and internal routes was crucial. Downstairs, after excavating the concrete floor, a new insulated slab with under floor heating was installed, and was ultimately finished in polished concrete through-out.

Constructing an internal archway naturally opened up the kitchen to an adjacent informal dining space, seamlessly delivering a dual aspect. While upstairs, the beautiful and original features including intricate cornices, ceiling roses, architraves and shutters were carefully maintained and enhanced. Original pitch-one floors were also retained and refinished.

Unique houses require very specific skill-sets to restore their identity and meet potential. We combined conservation expertise, architectural project management, and proven interiors insight to add a modern context to an historical gem.
