Hollywood drive (Dublin 14)

Here are some images from a 3d model for our new project in Dublin 14. The challenge in this project was to consolidate the main house and subsequent additions, which looked quite chaotic, into one harmonious unit.

We have met our clients early this week and they are delighted. At the moment we are working on a few adjustments so we can get it ready for planning very soon.

Updating from Bayview Drive, Killiney

We are working on site a new house Killiney. The nicer feature in this project is the big open space to the garden at ground floor with a curve canopy finished on Zinc. The site is looking tidy and clean,  working with Dalvac Systems have been a pleasure so far.  We are finishing the electrical works and now hoping to pour the concrete this week so we could move to floors and into the next step: install the kitchen and the utility...looking forward to it! The internal space of living room and cooking/dining area is really spacious, illuminated with a big roof light 1x2m and these big floor to ceiling windows provided by Rationel.

New refurbishment in Churchtown

We are really glad to get to work with this lovely couple for our new project in Churchtown which will be ready to tender within the next two weeks. This morning meeting has been really successful, we went with them through all the aspect of the final layout for a refurbishment of the Ground Floor including a new look for their front door and back elevation. Neil and Cathy also brought a good few good ideas about floor finishes that we would love to incorporate into the design. As a result of a good teamwork between architects and clients, their house will turn into a more contemporary looking design and the quality of their living space will be improved substantially within their budget. It's a pleasure to work like that!

Back extension in Rathfarnham

We are trying a few different layouts for a new house extension at Beaufort Downs. these are the first sketches and today we will be working on on a 3D image in Sketch up to test the inside and outside implications of the extended building. We are really excited about this new job!
