Hatch Street Revival

There is something satisfying in restoring the original use to a building.  This recently completed project involved the restoration of full residential use to a property which was in partial office use. The challenge in optimising the layout led me to clear out some rooms of unnecessary clutter and rationalise the bathroom locations.  The result is entirely refreshing and utterly practical. I have to confess I was blessed with  dream team of both contractor and client who jointly approached me.  I had previously worked with the contractor on the construction of 2 stunning riverside houses in Chapilizod which had received Planning Permission based on design from World Building of the Year winning Grafton Architects. Now if I needed a place to live right in the heart of the city, within a stone's throw from both Iveagh Gardens and Stephen's Green I could do a lot worse than rent this property.
