Project name: Cottage renovation and extension, Belgooly, Co. Cork.
Planning granted: August 2008
Project status: Completed 2009.
Description: Extensive refurbishment of a single storey two room stone cottage including a two storey contemporary extension to form a small family home of approximately 150 sq.m. Vaulted ceilings in the living room allow for a mezzanine level over the kitchen used as a home office. Traditional lime renders were used on the original cottage. The site allowed for extensive full height glazing to the south opening onto sheltered and private outdoor areas. Designed in accordance with the Cork Rural Housing Guide, it is an interpretation of the traditional long narrow house typical to the area.
