Rear Extension to 109 Osborne Park

Design: Ard (Ciaran Mackel) Architects

Location: Belfast

RIBA Awards 2012 Citation:

This major addition to a double-bay, detached Victorian villa, is tucked away from the street and is seen in the context of the rear off-shots and extensions of suburban Belfast. The composition of gabled extensions remains sympathetic to the varied rear treatments acquired by neighbouring properties over the years.

The rationalisation of the functions, spaces and detailing, however, are in marked contrast. Along the width of the house the distinction between served and servant spaces is articulated in massing and materials. The two activities are separated by a courtyard and an in-between space, these provide a discrete and stylish workplace in the heart of the family home. The new spaces bring light into the depth of the plan balancing the formal Victorian rooms at the front of the house.
