Georgian townhouse undergoes a beautiful preservation in Dublin

Georgian Townhouse-Kingston Lafferty Design-01-1 Kindesign

An 18th century mid terrace Georgian townhouse has undergone a challenging renovation by Dublin-based design studio Kingston | Lafferty Design, located in Ranelagh, a posh urban village in Dublin, Ireland. The task ahead of the project team for this dilapidated two-story home was to make the structure more sound and to preserve the buildings original details. The property had been neglected for quite some time, which made the integrity of the structure very alarming. Extensive structural work had to be undergone not only to help preserve the existing structure, but to support a new addition and the neighboring homes attached on either side. Although the interiors were quite spacious, the existing layout and garden at the back of the property were not very user friendly and needed to be re-configured. The goal for the design process was to maximize all available space and to increase natural light throughout.

The basement footprint was reduced in order to increase ceiling height on the main level, while the garden at the back of the property was extensively excavated to allow for an extension onto the home of a large conservatory. A tiered garden was given a purposeful design, encouraging outdoor living and helping to draw natural light into the basement level… not to mention it is aesthetically pleasing! Linear forms and raw materials makes this home very contemporary in nature, contrasting nicely with period features of the original structure and the more traditional aesthetic of the conservatory.

What We Love: Inspiring design details such as the stained glass in the kitchen, the spiral staircase in the sunlit conservatory… oh, and did we mention the conservatory! Wow, absolutely beautiful extension, very seamless transition from the rest of the home and the way it integrates into the backyard, LOVE. The gardens and outdoor sitting areas are an oasis in a busy urban area. Fantastic work, these designers are rocking it… what do you think? Are you loving the conservatory and preservation work done on this home remodel?
