TAGGART extension, PORTBALLINTRAE
The existing 1920's two storey dwelling is situated at Portballintrae, in close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. The client wished to reconfigure the existing accommodation to facilitate modern family living for three generations of their family in an open plan arrangement.
A new extension was added to the building to create an open aspect to the private garden at the rear and a sunken courtyard whilst the poorly lit cellular accommodation was altered to facilitate the families aspirations. The new extension is bounded by an existing corrugated roofed outhouse which provides an interesting contrast.
An overhanging canopy was provided to allow year round use of the space whilst the canopy crank provides a dynamic, visually interest elevation. The material palette used was simple and restrained with the emphasis being placed on strong elements of hardwood timber to add warmth.
