Victorian Terrace House Extension by Ailtireacht Architects

The extension for this Victorian Terrace House in Rathgar, has been commissioned by Dublin-based Ailtireacht Architects to create an additional multifunctional livingspace, that would meet the growing needs of a growing family. And they managed in the most stylish way. Made from light-grey zinc foil wraps and featuring some colourfully glazed projections, the generously proportioned house adds a tinge of contemporary functionality to a two-storey building house. With an additional bathroom, bedroom and work space, Matilde House has now become a cozy place to live. It looks like the place we’d move in, to blend both looks and the beautiful three-dimensional realm.

    that were placed out the back and
    left behind?

    Just went on a tour of ultra modern homes in Los Angeles. Love the concepts of many of these homes, but if not executed properly (as with any house), the uber modern could be an uber disaster. Some modern marvels show well but do not have substance. That said, this house seems pretty cool.
