Architecture Ireland Feature — Pavilion House

We are delighted to announce that Pavilion House is featured in the March / April 2020 issue of Architecture Ireland. Here’s a snippet of what Ross Melbourne MRIAI had to say — “Built on a square plan, the modest guest pavilion sets the tone on arrival. Its timber post-and-beam loggia approximates the welcoming gesture of Gunnar Asplund’s Woodland Chapel, at once elemental and refined. A roof light at its centre washes light down a bisecting wall that braces the roof structure.”

Sunday Independent Feature — Futureproof

We’re delighted to be featured in the Sunday Independent article, Futureproof. RBA founder Robert Bourke shares six tips that will improve your space, whether you’re downsizing or refurbishing. Here’s a snippet of what he has to say —

“The rule is the smaller the space, the more important the details. Not only should every inch of space play its part in enhancing the quality of your life, but so should the details, or how things are made. A handrail to a stairs is a necessity, but could also be an interesting feature in a room.
