Project Description

A2 BER Rated, 360sqm Detached Home

This 360 sqm detached home over 3 floors is located in Rathfarnham, Co. Dublin. An existing dwelling was demolished and replaced with a modern family home.

Our team worked on this project for 10 months, completing the build on time and within budget. Careful consideration was given to all key components of a low energy house.

This house featured in Decor magazine (June – July 2015) and also in All Ireland Kitchen Guide magazine (Autumn – Winter 2015)
