Wicklow Residence was a complete extension and renovation project which was carried out in collaboration with Kingston Lafferty Design and style and renovation business Renova, who constructed and planned managed the create. It concerned the demolition of the present flat roofed extension, the full configuration and redesign of the current stone cottage and the design of a new double storey extension to the rear of the residence.
The present stone cottage is in excess of two hundred many years previous, so we produced the extension to be sympathetic to the current stone cottage and sought to highlight the original characteristics of the cottage as considerably as achievable. The stone cottage originally had quite a modest window opens and was dark within. We wanted the addition to be bright and spacious and reflect a sense of modernity in contrast to the cottage. As effectively as re-configuring the area, we also made joinery and furnishings items throughout the house to improve storage. The consumer was downsizing from a big household home, so it was extremely important to maximise storage and functionality all through the house. Circulation and ease of use had been a key design and style consideration overall.
