Domestic Extension, Stormont, Belfast
An extension to a suburban family home in Belfast, N.Ireland creating a new garden room on the ground floor with a generous master bedroom above.

A rendered cubical form sits on a brick base course which matches the rest of the house.
Large fixed windows provide considerable amounts of natural light and a large glazed door provides access to the garden.

An existing window on the staircase is retained so the rendered box steps away from the rear wall of the house creating a small external terrace which is accessible from the bedroom.
The route to the bedroom is by means of a bridge overlooking a double height space above the garden room.

It was possible to create a generous extension which by a few simple moves provides a quality contemporary living environment even though the budget was relatively modest.

Graphite Studio returned to this property in 2010 to design a second extension to create an enlarged kitchen/dining. New bi-folding doors were inserted into the existing kitchen window to access the garden.

Size 65 sq m
Budget 55,000 / 71,500 Euros
