Holywood Extension

This project involved the refurbishment, extension and remodelling of a  suburban detached property in Holywood, north Co. Down, Northern Ireland. The existing dwelling is a 1970’s two storey house. The south/west facing rear garden overlooks Belfast Lough. The design was developed to make best use of the views and evening light, enhance the relationship with the garden, while creating a contemporary open plan kitchen, living, dining.

As architects our brief was to create a light filled space, tailored to our clients specific needs. Large sliding doors opening to the garden and a large frameless rooflight over the dining space dissolve the distinction between inside and out and draw light deep into the existing house. The roof profile steps to create a play in volume defining areas within the plan.

The extension, whilst uncompromisingly modern, remains extremely welcoming and homely. A three sided stove addresses kitchen, living and dining spaces. Whilst the layout is open plan, the partition created by the stove serves to create privacy and intimacy within the individual spaces. A large framesless rooflight over the dining space, serves both to define it and to allow light deep into the house.
