Extension and partial refurbishment to an existing semi-detached house, in Clonee, Dublin 15, completed by Fergus Flanagan Architects in 2014.
The existing layout was dark and poorly designed. The client brief was to create a new light filled kitchen, dining and living area to connect to the rear garden and also a new bedroom at first floor. The ground floor level was extended to provide additional open plan living and dining space and we extended the first floor over the existing single storey side extension. The roof of the new rear extension was pitched upwards to allow light to penetrate deeper into the plan of the house. It is important to consider light when adding any extension to ensure that the existing spaces aren’t darkened. A full high performance sliding screen system was selected running floor to ceiling allowing most of the wall to be opened up to make a vital connection with the garden. This extension was also given a Covered Terrace area which is a direct response to the Irish climate. In this case we do this by simply extending the roof out over the terrace area which is not only a low cost and practical solution but it also looks fantastic!
The essence of giving a client what they want is good communication! We use the latest BIM technology which allows us to demonstrate proposals to our clients using interactive 3D models, computer generated images and videos. We can even do this remotely using Virtual Meeting software if necessary. In this way we let the client in, we involve them, we take on their ideas and then bring them to a higher level. For extensions and renovation projects, we offer clients the opportunity to have a Design Session with Fergus Flanagan in their home, right at the start of their project so that we can give advice and design ideas for their project.

HOW WE ACHIEVE EXCELLENCE IN THE END PRODUCT?
Regardless of budget we ensure that we deliver excellence in both design and service.
“I never know what a building will look like at the start of a project. I start with a blank sheet every time, this way you do not rule out innovation. Every client is different, every site is different, every project has different challenges & budgets in this way every building should be different. We do not rush projects, good ideas evolve, they don’t just happen. We don’t set a time limit on any of our projects unless our client has one. It is ready when our client is happy and we feel we achieved the high bench mark which we set ourselves. Lastly I put my name to the practice and everything that comes out through its doors, this way I can give my personal guarantee of excellence in design.” Fergus Flanagan
