Highfield | Dundrum

This project involved the extensive refurbishment and extension to a south-facing corner site in County Dublin. This was an excellent opportunity to integrate passive and green technologies.

The structure was built with a Supergrund passive foundation and floor system, a timber frame with pumped cellulose insulation. We installed a heat recovery ventilation system with very high level of air tightness. We installed a rain water harvesting tank in the rear garden, with submerged pump pressurising the entire system, underfloor heating, central vaccum.

All centred around a generous central entrance hallway with open and direct connection to the garden from the main living rooms.
