In collaboration with Madeleine Kessler Architecture and Nick Elias Studio, we have won an invited competition to develop design branding for London based EV tech company, Arrival. Over the coming months we will be working on strategies for their offices around the world, helping the company realise its aspirations for workplaces that are centred around collaboration and well being.

House in Cushendun

In collaboration with Dún-na-dTuar Architects, we recently completed tender design for a significant addition to an historic home at the mouth of the Glendun River. The project adds a series of new spaces to the cottage, including a new vaulted family room perched above the river just moments before breaking out to sea.
Ideas of upturned boats, timber skeletons, big roofs.. all helped imagine the building in concept and detail.

Planning granted - Plinth House

Planning permission has been granted for a large extension to an existing 1980’s bungalow in County Limerick. The site sits between the Galtee & Knockmealdown mountain ranges, surrounded by historic farmyard settlements.

The design proposals include the reconfiguration & upgrade of the existing bungalow to present day environmental standards, with a new 85m2 single storey vaulted kitchen/living space orientated to capture south light and direct views of the mountains.
