Large modern extension to this small terrace town house in beautiful Killiney. The existing house, although very modest in size, benefits from a large corner garden. Our extension with its floating butterfly roof, and large areas of glazing to the South and East will benefit from natural light, heat, and views, where the existing house has a blank gable wall, missing out these free advantages.

14 February 2013. An internal view of the structure being formed. Ive carefully ‘sliced’ window openings to the floor so the modest garden in ‘brought-in’ to the living space, and vica-verse. The garden has beautiful mature trees and level changes. I want these to be very much part of the indoor experience.
