Private Dwelling Renovation / Extension
Project Duration:2020 - 2022 Location:Tralee, Co. Kerry

Details About Project

The detached dwelling house constructed in the 1980’s has become too small for the needs of our clients. In 2020, Sugrue Design were tasked to modernise and extend this dwelling. Major works were done to enhance the house structure and qualities: replacing the roof, new heating system, increased thermal insulation, new windows and doors etc. The modern extension to the rear of the house incorporates a bigger kitchen and living zones with much daylight and direct access to the garden area. The overall minimalistic black and white colour scheme was chosen to enhance the modern look of the house.
