Sunroom Extension For Semi Detached Period Home in Dublin

Our client wished to extend their semi-detached period house in Dublin. A large and bright space was required to extend the living area. Due to the age of the property the ground floor consisted of several small rooms which were not unsuitable. They initially explored the option of a traditional extension but with a three month build time and huge prices back from the tendering process they opted for Brightspace Sunroom which could be built within 4 weeks and a significantly lower cost.

Design Solution

We designed a large room extending 6m into the garden. Large picture windows were included to give great views to the garden. The back wall of the house would be knocked through to merge the sunroom with the internal room and create a large living area.


We had to knock out a window and wall, to gain access from the dining room into the new sunroom. Because the client wanted to retain the brick wall inside the sunroom, we had to preserve each brick to be able to repair the opening so it would look original. The old sewer system had cast iron fittings and clay pipes underground, all these services had to be replaced with a new PVC system. The sandstone paving circle was lifted and preserved so it could be refitted around the new sunroom.


White frames and a low wall were chosen to give the sunroom a contemporary look and feel. 4 large picture windows were chosen to maximize the view into the garden. 5 roof windows were chosen to create a bright room without taking light from the existing dining room. The floor level was brought up to match the existing floor level, so that the new flooring could line up with the existing flooring in the dining room. Build time extended to 5 weeks due to the significant amount of work to be carried out to replace the sewers.


Another Brightspace contemporary sunroom, built on time, within budget, once again exceeding the customers expectations.

The customer said:

We would have no issue recommending the Brightspace team for anyone getting a sunroom. We had approached a few companies when looking for who to go with and Brightspace stood out by a mile. From start to finish, they were professional, friendly, responsive and very clear on what we would be getting. The quality of their work and materials is very high and the team of people who worked at our house were all fantastic. We now have our new sunroom, on time and ready to go! Thanks so much to all of the Brightspace team!
