Extend a Kitchen with a Sunroom in Dublin

The client’s brief was to create a new warm bright and spacious sunroom to meet the need for their growing family in their semi-detached home in Dublin. The client particularly wanted to maximise the light as the two rear windows were small and any further impact would darken the rooms in the original house.

Design Solution

While this was a 2 storey house we would be building a sunroom onto a single storey rear kitchen. This would require a valley to the rear of the roof to allow the buildings to be joined.


Because the client had a young family, they requested that the build be completed within 5 weeks.

There were 2 sewer manholes in the way of the sunroom which we would have to move. Permission would be required from the neighbour to allow us access to their garden to remove the fence to allow the new wall to be plastered.


Light oak on white windows and doors were chosen in the new sunroom, to match the existing home externally, but helping to retain the brightness internally. 6 roof windows were installed to ensure maximum light into the kitchen.

Each facet of the roof would have a roof window to ensure maximum brightness. The manholes were successfully moved by our team. Corner pillars were constructed to create a more traditional extension look and feel. The floor level was brought up to match the existing house floor level so there was a level walk through to the sunroom.

Large viewing windows were installed to maximise the view of the garden.The opening windows were installed to the side of the sunroom where they would not be blocking any of the view but would still allow the required ventilation.

The house’s central heating was extended to the sunroom with two radiators. External lighting was installed on the pillars outside to allow evening entertaining on the patio.


A truly fantastic example of a contemporary sunroom that compliments the home perfectly. The clients were delighted that the job was completed within the 5 weeks period as requested, on time and within budget. The client arranged for a landscaper to complete the garden outside which compliments the sunroom and creates a link to the garden.

The client said

We have just completed our sunroom and it has exceeded our expectations. From day one, the project flowed smoothly. All the team members involved were punctual, helpful and of the highest professional standard.
