On this extension to a 1930s semi-detached house in the suburbs of Dublin, our clients were interested in forming a new room that was a continuation of the gentle formality of the main house; rather than extend with a scaleless, rootless annex. The existing kitchen was positioned, as was typical of the time, in a utilitarian dark north-west corner of the original house, with windows onto a dark side passageway set a metre above the garden.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannSave this picture!Plan – Ground floorSave this picture!Plan – First floorSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Fionn McCannOur objective was to reposition the kitchen in a manner that reflected its centrality to family life without forming a rupture between the work we added and the house we had been gifted with. Previously, the entrance hallway was cluttered with provisional storage and coat stands that offered an ad-hoc atmosphere that only served to devalue its centrality to the home.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannWe enhanced its stature by relocating storage and lining the walls with a wainscotting formed with simple inch-wide painted poplar beads, extending the central axis of the house through an oak lined lobby, concealing a mirrored wet bar, with a bright white terrazzo floor. In the view ahead, three terrazzo steps lead down to a generously sized dining room and kitchen. The view to the garden overlooks a circular dining area wrapped with sweeping curved glass.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannThe curved form creates a calm captured space, removed from the foot traffic of people passing through to the garden, and was inspired by the Victorian glass conservatories at Ballyfin and Dunfillan of Richard Turner, the Irish born Iron Founder and creator of the Palm houses in Kew Gardens and Belfast Botanic Gardens. The extension faces east, so to allow sunlight to reach deep into the room long, high clerestory windows bring in sunlight until mid-afternoon, and open to exhaust warm air in summer.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannExternally, forest green slender metalwork supporting gutters and concealing downpipes adds an enrichment and delicacy in a manner similarly deployed to the external joinery on the front façade fascias and bay windows of the 1930s original house. Inside new oak joinery to a bespoke design conceals all the appliances, pantry and utility door in an extension of the oak cabinetry in the lobby, while the same white terrazzo forms work surfaces and protective wall linings. In replanning the home, the kitchen is now at the heart of family life whilst the original house is renewed and given space to breathe and be valued.Save this picture!© Fionn McCannProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Precarious State of the Mom-and-Pop StoreArticlesHarlem Artist Studio / SO-ILSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Architects: Scullion Architects Area Area of this architecture project Churchtown House Extension / Scullion Architects “COPY” Area:  300 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs:  Fionn McCann Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project 2021 CopyAbout this officeScullion ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionDublinOn FacebookIrelandPublished on April 02, 2021Cite: “Churchtown House Extension / Scullion Architects” 02 Apr 2021.
