- Existing Building: 75 sq.m. New Addition: 18 sq.m. Value: €200k Duration: 20 weeks
- This period mews building (a Protected Structure) is located at the rear of a Georgian townhouse which had been a family home for decades, and was in completely derelict condition. The owners wanted to make a townhouse attractive to high-end tenants, which would also suit themselves as a city-base in years to come, while maximising the potential for the site.
- The elegantly composed classical garden façade addressing the main Georgian house was structurally stabilised and restored to best conservation practice, with 2 small windows formed in existing niche recesses for day-lighting to bedrooms, A new 2-storey dwelling was built within the restored building fabric, with a single-storey flat-roofed addition forming a 3rd bedroom/ study concealed behind the stone wall to the mews lane. Custom-made sliding hardwood doors open up the ground floor spaces to a wonderful private south-facing courtyard garden
