Architecture

NOWHERE

Menswear store Nowhere is located at 64 Aungier Street, the oldest merchant street in Dublin. The store design takes the essential fixtures of a clothes store and reimagines them as the structure of the narrative which is the store’s identity; the discourse of masculinity and the culture of clothes.

Helen Dillon Garden

The pattern of the screen is a distilled version of Mondrian drawing generated using four primary cuts and a Fibonacci sequence of offset cuts.

Split Level Terrace

Salvaged brick extension to a split level home providing additional accommodation and increasing sustainability to a split level mid-terrace home.

Victorian upstairs downstairs

Planning exempt domestic extension with an internal courtyard bringing light into new master bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.

Urbun Café

Passers-by get a full day’s show as the chefs bake bread and cakes and prepare salads, soups and sandwiches in this simply finished unit.

Doll’s Boutique and Bibi’s Café

Here are some photographs of a Café and Boutique we were working on recently for sisters Maisha and Petria Lenehan.

1923 Blackpitts

A 1923 ex Council house is remodelled creating modern and light filled accommodation for a young professional couple. Elements of the original steel-frame structure are exposed and incorporated into the design.

Vernon Avenue

Conversion of Butchers Shop to Hairdressing Salon in Modernist Terrace of Shops. The conversion, in conjunction with KRP, pushes the ancillary spaces up or out, to create a single flowing space for the salon from front to back.

Prefabulous

Until the likes of the Shomera came along prefabrication probably had a fairly rotten (no pun intended) reputation, so we were delighted to be commissioned by a Dublin based photographer who wished to relocate his photography studio to his back garden but was determined not to have his home life interrupted by a lengthy build.
