The brief was to restore and re-model a semi-detached house in Stranmillis, South Belfast for a young family. This involved a substantial 2-storey extension providing a large open plan kitchen, dining and family area with ground floor utility and wc. On the first floor was added a master bedroom with en-suite; the main bathroom was extended and a home office/bedroom was added as part of an attic conversion.

This was a corner site, which often provides a little extra width to the side of houses such as this, and this can be enough to locate the bulk of the additional space to the side of the house, which we did here. This allowed a smaller depth of extension to the rear with retention of most of the south-facing rear garden, which is now overlooked by large windows and doors from the new open-plan living space at the back of the house. The original reception room at the front of the house was retained as a separate living room, which is important to successful open-plan living.
