Completion Date: Feb 2011
Details: This project involved the demolition of an existing two-storey semi-detached house and the construction of a 2500 sq ft house in its place. The new house is a modern, contemporary design and was designed to get the most out of the extensive views overlooking South Park and Galway Bay. It features high levels of insulation, triple-glazed windows, air-tightness, rain- water harvesting and under-floor heating.
The site was a restricted city centre location and extensive hard and soft landscaping was incorporated to get the most out of the space.
