Residential Design Specialists

Individually tailored homes

Newbuild ⬩ Rebuild


We create new homes from scratch and new homes from existing buildings.

Our extensive experience in residential work includes gaining planning permission in diverse settings. Sometimes the most viable option to create a new home in Dublin is to demolish and rebuild much of an old one.

Extension ⬩ Reconfiguration


We specialise in transforming & enlarging early- to mid-twentieth century houses into family homes for life, while carefully balancing planning considerations, cost, sustainability & practicality. Many of these houses are executor sales which require full energy upgrades, so that often there is as much building work within the existing building shell.

Refurbishment ⬩ Conservation


Many people are drawn to the details of older properties - from Georgian townhouses to Art-Deco terraces.

Whether a protected structure or not, many of these possess attractive & often unique characteristics that our expertise can protect and enhance in creating something new and fresh.

About us


We used to make lego houses as children...


The blocks might be bigger now (and there's more paperwork) but we still love it.

Since being founded in a granite coach house near Ranelagh, Dublin in 2011, we have grown and expanded but continue to bring enthusiasm and care to each project we are involved in.

We are dedicated to delivering carefully designed unique homes. We pride ourselves in leading projects from concept to completion and everything in between, resulting in beautiful buildings and delighted clients.

The practice is registered with the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland and The Royal Institute of British Architects and holds an accreditation in Conservation (Grade III) and he RIAI Environmental CPD accreditation.

We lead your project from Concept to Completion

Costing

We work closely with our clients, discussing ideas and concerns, exploring every possibility with drawings so the design can evolve to match their aspirations, lifestyle and budget.

We thoroughly discuss everything from light switches to floor finishes and prepare detailed drawings of all fixtures & fittings to minimise potentially expensive changes at construction stage.

Compliance

By using the latest work practices such as Building Information modelling (BIM) software, we lead the project with certainty and efficiency while guaranteeing compliance with all relevant Irish & European building regulations.

We write comprehensive specifications and take care to design everything down to the smallest bespoke detail to exceed performance requirements and achieve high Building Energy Ratings.

Construction

We pride ourselves on the meticulous drawings we carefully produce. We ensure this high quality continues into the built product by reviewing all potential contractors prior to any work commencing.

We are actively involved in the construction stage. We have extensive experience liaising with contractors & consultants to assure the project stays on time, in budget and to the high quality our clients expect.
