Eden Villas, Glasthule
A two-storey extension to a 1930’s semi-detached house in Glasthule, Co.Dublin. The original house, at 55m2, was smaller than what the clients required to meet the needs of their growing family, however the house was located at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and had a large back garden. Working with the geometries of the site we extended the ground floor to accommodate a new kitchen and dining area. The original front entrance was relocated to the side of the house to afford a more generous living room. The dining area opens to the southwest for daylight throughout the afternoon while the kitchen has a more westerly aspect for evening light. External planters take advantage of a natural slope in the garden to frame a seating area that flows directly from the dining area.
