our WORK page is getting a revamp…

Working with Architectural photographer Ros Kavanagh & some great Clients,

we’ve spent the last couple of weeks photographing some recently completed projects.

Ranging from a number of sensitive refurbishments & extensions to protected dwellings in

rural & urban locations, to contemporary fit outs to retail units in our local neighbourhood,

to an exhibition stand in the RDS, I’m really looking forward to updating the WORK page.

 

 









Orpen House

The complete refurbishment & restoration of a 1907 three storey neo Elizabethan house is well underway and due for completion this summer.

Designed by Richard Orpen, brother of Irish artist William Orpen, in the Arts and Crafts tradition for the Crookshank family and situated on grounds owned by the Yeats family, the house featured in Jeremy Williams ‘Architecture in Ireland 1837-1921’.

The brief was to carefully restore the house to its original condition whilst providing a comfortable home for our clients. The works are designed to enhance and highlight the qualities of the building with the protection of the historic fabric and character integral to our design approach.

All non original 20th Century modifications & additions were removed and minor alterations carried out to the ground, first and second floor internal layouts to provide for improved living areas and to allow for a greater connection between all three floors and between the house and the garden whilst still preserving the integrity of the existing structure, its strong period character and decoration.

“HOUSE ON A TIGHT SITE” FEATURED IN THE SUNDAY TIMES

SUNDAY TIMES_07

Shortlisted for the 2015 RIAI Public Choice Award, “House On A Tight Site” has been featured in the Sunday Times, Sunday Lifestyle magazine.

 

The article reads:

 

“House on a Tight Site, Malahide, Co Dublin.

 

This pint-sized 1910 single-storey cottage is unrecognisable from the rear after its reinvigoration by Amanda Bone and her team at Bone O’Donnell Architects. The entire site measured less than 2,100 sq ft, but the team pushed it to the boundary, raising ceiling heights and replacing a rear wall with an L-shaped, abundantly glazed addition to make this a dazzlingly bright house with two very different faces.
Lowering the rear plan by more than a half-metre allowed for the introduction of higher ceilings, and the addition of a full-height sliding door and a long roof light creates a link with the outdoors. 

 

Thanks to Niall Toner & Dara Flynn.

“House on a Tight Site” in Malahide is featured in today’s Irish Times Property Section;

 

“DOWNSIZE WITHOUT COMPROMISING ON THE HOME COMFORTS

 

Moving from a large home to a smaller property can seem a daunting prospect, but, as these stylish properties illustrate, a smaller place doesn’t have to mean losing out on design, comfort or character.”

NEW ONE OFF HOUSE, ISLANDBRIDGE, DUBLIN 8.

CHA IMAGE

 

We have just commenced working on initial proposals for a new high specification contemporary one off house in a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) on the banks of the River Liffey.

 

Informed by the existing site conditions, building lines & flood lines of the River Liffey, the building has a closed façade to the North and opens to the South, providing views across and along the River Liffey. The form of the building is punctured along the north elevation creating light wells and allowing views to the Phoenix Park.
