Rathgar is a minimal renovation and extension located in Rathgar, Ireland, designed by Peter Legge Associates. This renovation of a large Victorian end-of-terrace house in Rathgar, saw the upper levels stripped back to their original features and proportions, with insensitive additions removed, so as to again reveal the essential character of the spaces. On the lower level, a subtle remodeling of the interior improves function and circulation, and a new extension to the rear provides additional contemporary open plan living space addressing the garden. Taking influence in form from the curve of the existing rear façade, this sedum roofed extension is finished in lime render with brownished brass sheeting to the oak window frames and reveals and looks to complement the existing with a restrained lustre.
