London Office Trip

The office took a trip to London last week to pay a visit to some of the temporary exhibitions currently on show. The first was the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2013 designed  this year by Sou Fujimoto from Japan. Each year the gallery select a different architect to design a temporary structure which is constructed and open to the public to visit during the summer.
This years structure is described by the architect as a delicate, latticed structure of 20mm steel poles giving it a lightweight and semi-transparent appearance that will allow it to blend, cloud-like, into the landscape and against the classical backdrop of the Gallery’s colonnaded East wing it was certainly impressive. You can judge for yourself from the photo

Planning News

image002
We are delighted to announce that we recently received a decision to grant for a new dwelling house in Dublin 4 from An Bord Pleanala. Dublin City Council had issued a grant of permission but it was appealed to ABP. They have since decided to grant permission which is fantastic news. The house is on an extremely tight urban site which currently contains an old domestic garage. Further news in due course.
