Open House has come and gone with much activity and a little mishap for Donals ankle. While doing some gardening he tripped and fractured his ankle……! But the show must go on and Donal bravely did his speil about the house. Its the last year we will do it and we were delighted at the record number of people who came to visit our home (300!!). Thanks to all who came and were so enthusiastic and also to the generous helpers who ushered the crowd around. A few photos of the day…..notice Donal sitting on the table with his leg strapped!:-) Fionuala

The office has been a mass of foam board and bits of branches as the guys are building lots of models for various projects. It has gotten so full of stuff that I have moved my workspace into the main house for a bit of calm! And I am reallying enjoying it! Donal and Janek have 3 students working with them since they got shortlisted for a competition which I am not supposed to mention so keep in touch and I will fill you in later.

Room to improve

June 23, 2009

We had a visit today from Dermot Bannon of RTEs’ ‘Room to improve’. He was inspired by our double height living room and wanted to include it in his research for the show. Watch out for it in July. Dermots’ successful show is making Contemporary House Architecture much more accessible to the irish public and shows that hiring an architect is a very worthwhile excercise. We like that! You can still see it online on http://www.rte.ie/player/#v=1052243.
