Ailesbury Road, Ballsbridge – 
Private Dwelling.

This project comprises the renovation and extension of an existing semi-detached period residence in Ailesbury Road, Dublin’s most exclusive residential area. It involved the provision of a new habitable basement with two new levels of accommodation. The rear basement was constructed tight to the boundaries, and required extensive dewatering, and temporary supports to the existing structure.

Project Details

The existing structure was protected while remedial work was undertaken on the staircase, cornices, and internal plasterwork. All the existing timber floor structures were strengthened. Extensive conservation work was required to the existing facades and windows.

Working closely with the interior designer, the Elliott Group created approximately 560 square metres of living space which includes state of the art mechanical and electrical installations. A new lift to service the basement and upper floor was installed.

Subsidiary company Woodskills provided extensive hand-crafted joinery throughout the house.

This project demonstrates our ability to provide a modern extension to a protected structure and carry out extensive conservation works in accordance with best practice.
