This was the first project John and Eoin worked on together. John was then project architect with deBlacam & Meagher and the client engaged Eoin separately as an interior designer. The house was a new build, replacing a 1940s home that had been severely damaged by fire. The new house takes a U-form in plan with living spaces arranged around a central courtyard. The interior is intended to be contemporary but warm. The background is a simple palette of white walls and oak floor while the soft furnishings introduce colour. The choice of furniture integrates existing pieces that the clients brought from their previous home as well as pieces specially designed for the space.
