It gives me great pleasure to show you one of our most recent projects, Office Suites Club
, 20 Harcourt St.
Our client had a very clear vision from the get go and having worked extremely close to both Howard and Rachel, we are absolutely thrilled with the outcome of the project.
There are a lot of intricate details in this project from the bespoke joinery to the stripping back of decades of paint on the window frames to reveal the original timber finish.

Over the last year or so, there has been a hospitality influence coming into the office design market. Some companies have achieved this extremely well and some maybe not so good. There is a fine line between working in an office inspired by a hotel or bar, and working in an office that essentially is a bar……

Having worked with a large number of SME’s over the last few years we have seen a big uptake in the requirement for innovation spaces within the workplace. Now you might think that such a room would only be used by tech companies or creative agencies, but that’s not the case at all. Semi-state and more corporate companies are starting to see the benefit of having a space within their own office that allows their employees to break from the standard boardroom or meeting room and have a space that is conducive to creative thinking and innovation.

With many of us spending the vast majority of our time at work, it’s important that your office space is inviting, accommodating and practical. In fact, the average employee has been known to spend more time in the office than they do at home!
Of course, it’s super important that your office is a space that you actually enjoy spending time in. After all, a happy workspace instantly increases productivity, mainly because your surroundings can have a huge impact on your mood and general happiness.

So this week, I want to continue in the vain of colours but expanding on it a little more. While speaking with a potential client during the week, we discovered a really fantastic resource for colour palettes….movies. And with all the talk of the Oscar nominations this week, it seemed very fitting. However, there is one particular film director that seems to work with colour palettes like no other and that’s Wes Anderson.

So a couple of months ago, we were approached by the long established Pinheads Pizza on South Circular Rd to come up with a new design for their pizza shop. The shop was a pretty typical take away, as you can see below, but our client wanted something cool, that would attract new clientele.

So there’s only one week left and then it’s officially Spring, if you can believe it. It’s also the time of year that a lot of us are thinking about renovating or improving our homes, whether it’s a large project or a small project.
If you are undertaking a large renovation or extension, then one of the materials that you will probably most definitely use will be steel. But have you considered using it in areas other than the construction stage.
Steel and Metal have been fast becoming popular, and people are using steel in more prominent areas, here are some fab examples,

So we’ve had a very busy week here in the study, working on lots of exciting projects which we hop to be showing you very soon.
Una, one of the designers here in the office headed over to London at the weekend, and she has come back invigorated, with lots of new ideas and inspiration. So, based on her trip, I am going to take you around some of the cool places that she stayed and visited in Shoreditch, East London.

So we have been working on a lot of new concepts for projects over the last few weeks, and this process is generally only seen by the client. So, we thought that we would show you some of our concept designs that we have created over the last year, but for some reason or another never progressed to the development stages.

So we are over the moon here in the studio. We were notified on Friday afternoon that we have been shortlisted for 4 categories, including “Design Practice of the Year,” in the Fit Out Awards 2014. Continue reading “Exciting News!!!!”
So this week, I wanted to show you an exciting office project that we completed a few weeks ago. We were delighted when the ESB approached us to design an innovation space for their HQ on Fitzwilliam St. The space was designed to break away from the corporate environment, allowing its users to think creatively. Continue reading “Innovation in the ESB!”
So we took a trip to London last Saturday for London Design week, to check out the new talent and upcoming trends for 2015, and all I can say is WOW!!! The amount of choice and level of different and unique designs was astounding. We pop over to London ever year, but this year they really outdid themselves.
