Ballynahinch Road, Hillsborough
This was an extension to an existing detached property, which had been extensively damaged by fire. Following feasibility studies to establish whether to re-build or demolish and design an entirely new home, the client decided to proceed with an extension which followed the same approximate floor area of the original.
The extension incorporates large areas of glazing, and includes a glazed/stone gable-end projection to the rear elevation overlooking the rear garden, which contains the main entrance hall. A staircase forms the focal point at the end of the entrance hall, which features open timber treads, and a frameless glass guarding system which extends up the side of the stairs and continues around the open first floor landing, with understated elegance. The stair was designed and installed by Turner Engineering Ltd, Hillsborough.
