The original dwelling is unrecognizable from its original design which was transformed for contemporary living and is full of light and warmth.

The house was far from a family home and in dire need of rehabilitation.

The brief given by the client was very clear and the the dwelling was literally taken down to it’s four walls.

The design was inspired by the traditional Edwardian architecture of Glasthule and Dun Laoghaire and this influence can be seen in the brick parapet of the extension. A holiday in Copenhagen also influenced the final look.

A seminal part of the project’s success was the client stepping back and allowing Sherrard Design to experiment with with new things. From the bespoke tiled path that runs from the front of the house to the rear patio to the bedroom mezzanines and to the bespoke kitchen with its hide away accordion doors.
