EOIN O’KEEFFE ARCHITECTS

Building works commenced during the summer of 2019 on this extension project, involving 2 separate extensions:

With a new south, east + west facing ground floor Rear Extension, new Kitchen + Living Space.

Plus a separate Side Extension, works which have not started yet.

  1. A Ground Floor Rear Extension, in the south and east facing rear garden, while also taking in the view west, to the front of the house. At the new rear elevation is a raised sliding patio door + window, which also forms a large window seat in the new Kitchen and Lining Area, to be used by all the family.
  2. A 1st Floor Side Extension, replacing the existing single storey side Garage, creating a new Master Bedroom + En-Suite, which primarily over looks the River Colligan. The Veranda Space below the 1st Floor Side Extension allows access to the Rear Garden, views through the space and will be used as a sheltered outdoor entertaining space.

There are also some alteration works to the Ground Floor Level of the Existing House, to better connect the spaces through the house and two improve the connection between inside and outside.
