refubishment of house at caragh, naas


We were asked to undertake a substantial reconfiguration and extension of an existing dwelling including conversion of the attic space.  A central atrium space was carved out of the dormer attic space allowing sunlight to penetrate into the centre of the house from different directions during the day through roof lights and clerestory windows. A feature cantilevered ash staircase maintains the sense of openness at ground floor. The stairs balaustrade we hope will happen at some stage in the future!
