Foreign Bear Studio completes Glass House in Dublin

Expansive corner windows and skylights appear throughout this Georgian townhouse in Dublin, which Foreign Bear Studio has renovated and extended to create light-filled living spaces.

An extension comprised of two adjoining rectilinear volumes has been added to the back of the property to accommodate these living spaces. One volume has a concrete exterior, while the other is clad in timber panels.

A thick grey rug, black leather armchair, and faux fireplace stacked with chopped logs have also been included in the space to create a cosy feel.

Walls are pale pink in the adjacent dining room, which also has a skylight punctuated at the centre of its ceiling. Concertina glazed doors provide access to the garden, while towards the rear of the room a short flight of stairs leads to the main family living area.

Here surfaces have been painted navy blue, paired with chevron-pattern wooden floors.

Upstairs in the guest bedroom, the studio has installed an eaves rooflight – a style of window which forms a glazed link between the roof and elevation of a building. Inhabitants will now be able to overlook a tall, leafy tree in the garden that's home to local bird species.

A large skylight also centres the bathroom, which has been completed with hexagonal green floor tiles and brass sconce lights.

Similar to Foreign Bear Studio, Dominic McKenzie Architects brightened a house in north London by adding a tower-like extension with a 3.5-metre-high sash window and glazed French doors.
