Restoration & Extension of Dwelling, Killinchy, Co Down

This restoration and extension used materials collected by the client over many years from salvage yards and local demolitions. The house had been subjected to an insensitive Housing Executive ‘improvement’ grant which replaced the timber sliding sash windows with wider u-pvc windows and built the flat roofed rear return. Using an old photograph we sought to reinstate the original features, extend the property and better integrate the flat roofed rear return. At the same time through insulation and new heating systems we also greatly improved the energy efficiency of the house.
