Ormeau Road, East Belfast

Ormeau Road, East Belfast

Our client purchased this tired-looking semi-detached house with an ambition to extend and renovate it to reflect their modern way of living.

The space was dysfunctional, and rooms were disconnected from each other.

The solution was to demolish the existing detached garage blocking the evening light and incorporate this freed space into the garden.

Once dark and dated, the kitchen extension is now transformed into an open plan living space with a generous kitchen, an island, dining and sitting area.

A muted colour palette of interiors provides an excellent backdrop for our client's artwork.

Carefully positioned roof lights ensure that natural light is drawn into the space.

The front room has been revamped and reconnected with the rest of the house by introducing sliding doors to create a snug as a contrast to the main light-filled open space.

The downstairs toilet and utility were added in the middle/dark section of the house.

Externally, the extension was built with dark grey brick in contrast with the original Belfast red brick of the existing house.

The striking yet straightforward façade is enhanced with a playful brick pattern around the openings.

With painted timber storages and fences, white painted original boundary wall and soft landscaping, this intimate urban garden provides a space to entertain, relax and unwind.
