1848 House Refurbishment
The brief for this renovation was to take a cold but beautiful and charming house and turn it into a comfortable home. With structures of this age, it takes specialist skills to work with the materials in a way that is compatible in terms of building physics. Insulation, airtightness, ventilation were all addressed. Small rooms were combined into grander spaces, all addressing the outstanding views across Cork City, and bringing in light. It was also published in the Examiner property section.
