Vinnie & Leona’s home is perched on a steep sloping site high up on the hills of South County Dublin with panoramic views of Dublin City. This was a challenging planning application to say the least. In fact we got two refusals before we eventually secured planning for this magnificent Family home. The initial brief was to design a 4 bedroom dwelling with a kitchen / dining / living room with the feel of an inner city loft conversion carried out in an old warehouse.
The design which won out, is that of two small cottages set back from each other, this creates a deep plan which houses the large Kitchen / Dining / Living area. Raising the ceiling collars on both sections allows the extra volume given in warehouse conversions feel. The large feature window which is tucked away out of sight allows the living area to be flooded with natural light. The bedrooms are placed to both sides of this open living area. With all boxes ticked, Vinnie, Leona and their Family enjoy their superb home.
