A View from the Millennium Tower!

The Millennium Tower is a landmark development at Charlotte Quay overlooking Grand Canal Dock in the heart of the Dublin Docklands. Built in 2000, number 47 has stunning views but was in tired condition as in its original condition. The property was sold for €540,000 as an investment property. In its closing condition the rental value was approximately €2,000 per month. Owen Reilly recommended Think Contemporary to the purchaser (an Irish investor living overseas) to fully refurbish the property to target corporate tenants.

Do you know your style?….Mid Century

Good Morning!

Continuing on with our “know your style” series, we are going to be looking at Mid Century design this week.  Mid Century furniture and design has had somewhat of a revival over the last few year and not just in interiors. We have also seen a strong resurgence in fashion.

All is not so in Dundrum!

Good Afternoon!

So we had the opportunity to photograph one of our most exciting residential projects to date this weekend and I thought that you might like to have a look.

This project started in 2012 and was completed at the beginning of the summer this year. There was a considerable amount of planning with this project as our client went through a difficult process of weighing up the pro’s and con’s of putting on an extension. In the end, a full renovation and extension was agreed on.

The house was built in 1950 and with the introduction of a very contemporary extension to the rear, it was very important to our client that the integrity of the original house was not lost. With this in mind we set about designing an interior that bridged the gap between old and new.

Why Ply?

Good Morning,

When we think of using wood in our homes, what comes to mind? Oak, Walnut, Cherry, etc. Well Plywood is the new wood of choice for many design conscience people. This material has been used in the building trade for years, but never in clear sight until fairly recently. Not only has this timber a beautiful grain but it is also a sustainable material.

One Funky Showhouse!

We were absolutely delighted when Gannon Homes asked us to design the new showhouse for Park Edge, Clongriffin. The brief was to create a contemporary and funky home that would appeal to first time buyers and young families. The houses were launched this weekend, and I think it went down pretty well….

The houses themselves are gorgeous 3 storey 3 bedroom homes, with a dedicated study and fab balcony on the top floor.
