Harold's Cross

A small cottage on a restricted plot adjacent to the Grand Canal in Dublin required remaking to address poor layout and a flooding issue. Permission was sought to remove a part-basement and open loft and build a first floor of accomodation.

The resulting two bedroom house provides improved accommodation on a severely constricted site. A kitchen/dining area, bedroom and bathroom remain on the ground floor with a new living room and bedroom on the first floor.

A small south-facing courtyard lights the living areas on the ground and first floor whilst a first floor winter garden lights the centre of the plan.

The light-weight timber and steel frame is clad externally with a ridged fibre cement board and windows and doors are a composite steel and timber.
