Here is a sample of Design projects completed / part complete.
My style is traditional/contemporary with a strong emphasis on blending the house into its surroundings.
There is a short description for each project outlined below.

If you would like some Architectural Design please contact me and we can discuss the project

Dwelling in Killorglin, Co. Kerry. Area = 1800 sq.
Built on a sloping site this dwelling with traditional design maximises natural daylight whilst retaining sheltered sun traps to Living / Dining room's at front & rear entrance.
New dwelling in Kenmare, Co. Kerry.
Area = 251 m.sq
The client required a traditional/contemporary design that maximised sunlight and provided overhanging roof canopys to provide cover for childrens play areas and outside dining.
House in Callinafercy, Killorglin, Co. Kerry
My clients wanted a spacious storey & half dwelling that was bright and airy throughout. Window locations to optimise the light and views to the river were important. An end of corridor window can be very effective and makes a corridor bright and inviting : See the entrance hallway image below :
Extension & Renovation Project in Killarney, Co. Kerry
This involved the renovation and extension of an existing outside shed into living & dining rooms and linking it into the existing cottage.
The client wanted to keep the traditional cottage feel of the project but have a modern open feel to the renovated kitchen/dining & living areas.
Fake Grand Piano for Touring Stage Show :
As a break from designing buildings I was approached to design a Fake Grand Piano for a touring stage show.
This furniture piece was designed to take a real keyboard, to be easily taken apart to fit in a case and be strong but light for touring. It had to look real as it's now being used on stage throughout Asia.
House extension & renovation, Killorglin, Co. Kerry
The client wanted a larger Kitchen & Dining area along with more natural light. 3D was used to help decide on the final extension size and layout.
Dwelling House in Leitrim
Area = 253 m.sq
This design was on a steep slope on an elevated site overlooking an area of natural beauty.
The challenge was to knit the dwelling into the landscape.
