CONSERVATORY, ENNISKERRY, CO WICKLOW
A conservatory was constructed on a largely closed south-facing wall of a period house. This is an example of a Conservation project.
The clients wished to construct a conservatory to extend the living space and to create a bright room within their period house.
The location of the conservatory was first carefully chosen so that the existing mature garden would not be interfered with. The building has two elements: the glazed windows, doors and roof on the one hand and the contrasting brickwork base. The glazed elements allow natural light (and air) into the house and provide new views out to the garden. The (reclaimed) brick base includes arches which spans the area - allowing light into the basement - to connect the new conservatory back to the original house.
The conservatory sits comfortably in the garden and is an embellishment to the house.
