Cork | Architecture
This is a development of two residential units that are above two commercial ground floor units. The site strategy was to put the living and kitchen space to the South of the site to allow light to fill the space most occupied.
The materials of the apartment are minimal and concrete which is a response to the industrial nature of the site.
Cork | Architecture
The house is nestled in the Cork countryside.
The concept of the house was to create a compact and comfortable home that responds to the context. The home faces South West and looks up the hill to the forest and down the valley, framing the tranquil views. The kitchen, dining and living room form the heart of the home with the forest acting as a consistent backdrop to life in this room.
The hallway opens up to a double height space looking directly down the valley, with a formal dining area at the widest point. The house is closed to the North giving privacy from the neighbours.
Croatia | Architecture
The house was built in 1920 with Natural stone from the region of Paradis.
The house was a ruin but with beautiful original features and character. The concept for the home is to maintain the original charm while adding a significant extension to provide a modern Croatian villa. The home has a small outhouse that will also be extended and refurbished into a guest house.
Dublin | Architecture
This is a period building and protected structure located on Merrion Street, Dublin 2. The historical importance of the building and protecting the existing features was the highest priority for the project. The project is an office fit-out and refurbishment of this existing building. The materiality and design of the office furniture are modern, crisp and slightly industrial, this is deliberately done to contrast the period features of the original building. The colour palette was whites, greys and blacks to give the interior design a minimalist and timeless quality.
This is both a project of restoration and an extension. This house is found within an overgrown woodland and on the property of a larger estate house. The old gatehouse has gone through a number of changes over its long life, with two extensions added on during the '80s. The plan for the restoration is to restore the two-room original house, add a glass extension to the house and restore the connection to the basement. The double-height space allows room for a loft, which will delicately float within the void to provide a study and reading area.
