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.

1840 Strand Road

Refurbishment of 1840’s seafront villa. New green technology is carefully integrated into with the original fabric, maintaining the character of the original dwelling while providing an airtight ‘green’ house and upgrading the energy rating from G to A/B.

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.
