The project consists of a comprehensive refurbishment of the clubhouse entertainment facilities in Crosshaven. Work was carried out in a tight programme over two winter seasons to be ready in time for the club's Tercentenary celebrations. Areas of work included the bar, dining room, reception area and toilets. Existing historical paintings and other artefacts were carefully retained and displayed to their best advantage in an atmosphere that is comfortable yet modern in style, and with a subtly nautical flavour. Materials selected include oak flooring, a bespoke centrepiece fireplace in Cork limestone, leather upholstery on the new bar furniture and solid ash joinery with brass detailing. The carefully managed phasing and co-ordination allowed club facilities to operate with minimal disruption. Facilities were improved to provide accessibility.

Shorcontrol Safety specialise in health & safety training, equipment and testing. Having outgrown their existing premises, the company purchased a neighbouring site to construct a purpose-built training facility as a flagship for their growing business.

The design takes advantage of the long narrow site at the end of the industrial estate and a small stream forming the rear  boundary. 

The timber glulam frame is expressed as a colonnade along the roadfront to create a distinctive and welcoming aspect, while a double height atrium provides an uplifting relaxation space for the classrooms and offices which overlooks the landscaped riverside and pastoral views beyond.

North Abbey Street, Cork

11 North Abbey Street is a mixed use development on a tight inner city site off Shandon Street. It consists of a retail unit, offices and 5 apartments arranged above in two separate blocks rising to 5 storeys over ground.

The building combines a new build development with a redevelopment of an existing former furniture warehouse.

The former warehouse use has informed the office interior with its’ use of rough sawn timber floors, patinated mild steel stairs and large bay window to create a visual connection to the laneways and the city.
