University Road


Refurbishment & extension in Galway

This is refurbishment & extension of a two-up two-down period house. The house is one of eight turn of the century houses that form a charming terrace on University Road. The key was to preserve the existing character of the house while also providing a functional bright & thermal efficient family home. The aim to build a low energy A-rated house led to the form of the extension. This three storey extension brings daylight into the house creating a bright positive environment and heating the house through passive solar gain. The windows are low-e triple glazed. A polycarbonate skin helps to weather super-insulated walls, to keep the U-value low and to encourage light into the interior.
