이번 프로젝트는 집의 1층을 완전히 개조하고 길이를 연장하여 일련의 방을 만드는 방법을 우선적으로 선택했다. 그리고 안뜰과 정원은 L자형으로 꺽어, 주변보다 유리한 전망을 제공할 수 있게 설계하였다.
The starting point for this project is a problematic suburban type house without merit, that has been dropped on a green field site without consideration of its context.
The extension seeks to address this by totally refurbishing the ground floor of the house and extending it in length to create a series of enfilade rooms.
The extension then turns right to create an external sheltered patio and a garden shed beyond, so that the site is divided by an L shaped configuration. The external elevation of this is given to the road as a long elevation like a traditional Irish farmyard. The 'inside' of the L is offered to the southwest and the more favorable aspect and view over the surrounding farmland.
The extension is constructed of concrete block with expressed rough concrete beams onto which a larch roof structure is tied. A continuous roof light runs the length of the extension roof, which is finished in blue colored zinc.
