Working on a Saturday

It’s like I say time and time again. If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish. Thérapie Clinic by Kingston Lafferty Design.

Casa La Quinta

A holiday home in the Mexican city of San Miguel De Allende by PPAA (Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados) looks inward on a series of patios. A study of voids and 3D spaces the house is not so much introspective as it is oasis and retreat. A fascinating study of light and shade, solid and void, public and private.

A renovated historic coach house in Dublin

Posted on Fri, 6 Mar 2020 by KiM

I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such a beautiful marriage of old and new. Kingston Lafferty Design really nailed this epic project. Bolton Coach House is an historic Coach House building. Kingston Lafferty Design was commissioned to reimagine the interior architecture of the existing building, incorporating a new contemporary extension and exterior terraces and garden. The new design combines and juxtaposes the old and new buildings as one interesting and exciting multi-level, unique space. The existing coach house is brimming with character, charm and original detail so we opted to maximise this with the design. We deliberately created interesting spaces, nooks and crannies, contrasting the old building with a juxtaposing minimal and streamlined extension design.

What’s cooking?

With its beautiful stone walls and light flooding in through floor to ceiling windows you could probably throw in a couple of old wooden boxes and a camp stove and this space would still look magical. Adelaide-based Georgie Shepherd has taken this kitchen dining space to the next level. Country style kitchen goals!
