Project Details

Designer Maria Macveigh asked Styles Building Services to undertake this project to transform a 1907 Edwardian residence in Terenure, Dublin 6, into a modern usable home for a family of six. We first met Maria on site to go through her design concept.

There was no large kitchen dining area in the house so we went about constructing the design Maria had configured, opening out a wall between the back rooms and removing the floors to allow for polished concrete flooring. Ten steel sections were inserted into the structure to create the open plan living area. The attic was converted to create a double bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and en suite including a wall-hung toilet. A stringer stairs was added giving access to this level.

Two new shower rooms where formed on the first floor which included wall hung toilets, sinks shower trays and a bath with Corian panelling surround.

There was a new flat roof extension built with a warm, Trocal finish with one side allowing light into the kitchen area and the other side housing a storage area and downstairs toilet. In the back garden there was a large granite patio area formed to take advantage of the long summer evenings. The build and renovation time on this project was 6 months.
