Bothar Brugha

Project Description

The houses on Bothar Brugha were built by the Corporation of Drogheda in the 1950s, and are regarded as one of their finest projects. This renovation sees a contemporary new kitchen extension with mono-pitch roof built to the rear of the house wrapping around a courtyard space. Although a small footprint the kitchen is bright & spacious. The new living room enjoys dual aspect with a large ‘picture frame’ window looking out over the patio & garden. The project is enhanced with detailing such as the small copper roofed porch to the front, alu-clad windows,  the in-situ cast concrete reveals to the new windows, and the chimney detail. The renovation project is a good example of an older townhouse in an established area being enhanced and brought up to modern living standards.
