Rathmichael Residence – Progress Week 1
The start of a new year brought the start of another new project for the team and KLD.
Rathmichael Residence is an exciting reconfiguration and extension of a large residential project in collaboration with Cantrell & Crowley Architects. The first floor of the existing bungalow is being reconfigured and a second storey is being added. Take a look at the some before photos below.
The before photos really show you how dark the space was before, with heavy wood and strong colours dominating both the interior and the exterior of the property. The design aims to open up the space bringing in the natural light, maximising the circulation and the view.
All this joinery has now been stripped out and we have a shell to start our build from.
The family home will feature open plan living spaces, double height ceilings, cosy nooks and beautiful tiling and joinery details to name but a few.. The eclectic mix of contemporary and traditional design makes for an exciting interior from both a spatial layout and materials perspective. It is one we are very much looking forward to seeing develop over the coming months, and will be sharing snippets of all the stunning samples and details with you along the way.
But for the moment.. here are some photos of week one’s progress as the site got stripped out for works to begin! It always surprises me how quickly a house can be completely gutted and a blank canvas for construction to begin and our designs to start taking shape.
We will keep you up to date on our Rathmichael Residence – Progress as the build develops.
