Living Loop

The brief was to refurbish a two storey’ mid terrace, two-bedroom house. The small house was reconfigured on both floors to create a meandering sequence of open, overlapping spaces, with all critical storage and sanitary spaces concealed along the edges. The garden end of the newly extended ground floor dining and living space provided the opportunity to create a private enclosed patio at first floor level. A set of external steps links the patio with the garden. Creating linked external spaces at both levels completes the chain of internal spaces and gives a greater sense of space and versatility to the whole house. A WC has been placed under the internal stairs, while a utility room is concealed under the external steps. A south facing entrance porch and rooflight over the stairs increase solar gain. A condensing combi boiler reduces energy demand for heating.

Is éard a bhí le déanamh anseo teach dhá sheomra dhá stór lársraithe a athchóiriú. Athchóiríodh an teach beag ar an dá urlár chun spásanna lúbacha oscailte a chruthú agus na spásanna stórais agus sláintíochta a cheilt ar na taobhanna. Bhí deis againn paitió iata príobháideach a thógáil ag leibhéal an chéad urláir ag taobh an gháirdín den spás bia agus comhluadair nua-shínte ag urlár na talún. Nascann céimeanna seachtracha an paitió agus an gairdín. Tá níos mó spáis agus ilúsáideachta le brath sa teach de bharr go bhfuil spásanna seachtracha nasctha ag an dá leibhéal agus iad ag tabhairt slabhra na spásanna inmheánacha chun críche. Cuireadh leithreas faoin staighre inmheánach, agus tá an seomra acraí á cheilt ag an staighre seachtrach. Tá solas na gréine ag teacht isteach trí dhoras phóirse agus díonsolas os cionn an staighre i dtreo an deiscirt. Laghdaíonn comhchoire chomhdhlúthúcháin an t-éileamh fuinnimh i gcomhair teasa.
