Though we are sorry not to be able to welcome you in person for this years Open House, we are delighted to be able to bring you on a virtual tour of one of our favourite projects, Haddington Park, an extension and renovation of a 1940’s bungalow in Glenageary, County Dublin. Get an insight into the design process and a peek at the finished home which was awarded highly commended for Best House Extension at the 2018 RIAI Awards.
RBA, in collaboration with landscape architect, Julia Vavilova, have made a submission on behalf of local businesses, residents’ associations and politicians in Phibsborough as part of Dublin City Council’s Covid Mobilty Programme.
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.”

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.
