#Extension Ideas for home in Portmarnock from a 2 hr House Consultation
Case Study 2 of 2: Extension Ideas for House in Portmarnock
The raw material: semi-detached house built in 1974 facing north to the rear. The family: 2 adults and 1 child aged 1. The brief: how to create a rear extension of maximum 36 square metres to accommodate a Kitchen/Dining/Family Room and to include a Utility and Guest WC. And how to resolve the relationship between the Living and Dining Rooms?
The Raw Material: My thoughts on the Existing Plan.
- The rear of the house gets no direct sun and is too fragmented for family living.
- The Dining and Living Rooms have an unusual relationship: the dining feels like a passage between the Living Room an Kitchen.
- The location of the fireplace in the Living Room, and the big opening between the Living Room and the Dining Room, makes the Living Room difficult to furnish and to relax in.
