Rothe House, Phase 1 - Restoration & Extension of the Third House & Yard
Restoration and extension of late sixteenth early seventeenth century Rothe House Complex (Protected Structure & National Monument) in Kilkenny City. The works consisted of internal alterations to the Third House including the strengthening addition to existing Irish green oak floors and walls, new oak staircase, new lift installation, works to the Outscale Building and delicate site works to Yards 2 & 3. A new green oak clad extension was constructed in the Third Yard to house new kitchen facilities. This project was progressed while the remaining areas of Rothe House were open to the public for the duration of the works.
