Monkstown EnerPHit - winner Green Residential Building 2013

 

We’re very proud to say that in late 2012 our deep retrofit & extension of a Monkstown semi-D was certified to 'EnerPHit' standard by the Passivhaus Institute of Germany. It is the first ‘Passive House’ or ‘EnerPHit’ retrofit of any building type to be certified in Ireland, & only the fifth ‘EnerPHit’ in the world. To add to this it was voted Green Residential Building of the year in 2013 at the annual Green Awards: a series of great achievements.

Albany Road - house for garden lovers - winner Green Residential Building 2014

 

It always seemed as if this 1929 detached house and garage had landed on this site from outer space. Seen from the road it made sense - as they fill the site to front - but to rear it meant the house seemed pushed into one corner of a garden that grew and grew the further from the road one went. We learnt the builder had deliberately squeezed other plots to enlarge his own, but he didn't take advantage of the result: we put right an 84 year old missed opportunity!
