Church Gardens Courtyard House

Located to the rear of No. 12 Church Gardens and previously a working coal yard the clients undertook to seek planning for a 3/4 bedroom Courtyard House. Following a lengthly period of engagement with Dublin City Council to resolve complex drainage issues, planning permission was received in 2009.

Construction commenced in April 2015 and the A3 rated house is now occupied. The design relies on bringing light into the plan through a series of skylights combined with full height glazing around the courtyard facades. Despite proximity to neighbouring properties a sense of enclosure and privacy is achieved, offering a quiet refuge in the heart of Rathmines.
