This ideally located property is owned by an Irish family that are now based in Asia. The objective was to turn this rental property into a comfortable holiday home that was suitable for short visits during the school holidays.
This is a recent project I designed which commenced in 2016, the complete renovation of an Edwardian house in Dublin 9. This house was stripped back to its core and fully modernised. The foundations were restructured, windows replaced, and a small extension added with a full redesign of the interior. The brief was to create a contemporary style throughout that was complementary to the era of the house, “straight lines with no frills”.
The clients, a professional couple, had purchased this property 3 years previous, moving of the furniture from their original home in London, most of the furniture didn't integrate well into the new property so it was time for a “re-design”.
“Showhouse Showdown” was a rare and exciting opportunity to showcase my style on TV, and the production company VIP and Pivotal Construction helped make it a very enjoyable experience. the brief was simple and precise from the offset, design a home for “family living”.
