Remodelling of an inner city cottage in Dublin. 

Our client purchased a single storey cottage in Dublin's fashionable Portobello. The cottage is currently a very cramped 63sqm. 3-bed dwelling with poor daylight management. Our proposals involve opening up the ground floor to create a more modern and dynamic interior whilst extending into part of the roof space creates a master bedroom, ensuite and walk-in wardrobe. The rest of the roof space is opened as a raised ceiling providing volumetric interest, the feeling of greater space and allowing the penetration of south and west light (day and evening) directly into the main living space, which opens onto the remodelled courtyard.
