DanesWood House

The clients requirement was to extend and upgrade the premises to fully comply with the requirements of the Health Information and Quality Authority standard (HIQA) regarding Residential Care. This is a step-down deliberated to approximate a residential “feel.” The extension ground floor bedrooms all face a private courtyard while linked internally to the facilities of the main house.

Although the building and gardens are not a protected structure every effort was made to preserve and restore features where possible. The extension is rated A3 while the overall development is rated B2.
