The brief was to design the interior of the house transitioning from an executive’s residence into a practical yet modern family home. Studio 44 completely refurbished this Dublin four-story town house for family use complete with FF&E.

The holistic design aesthetic that Studio 44 created for the house transcends through the residence, flowing from one floor to the next; not only providing uniformity with the design intend but ensuring functionality in a calm, and tranquil environment. Carefully considered furniture pieces and statement lighting fixtures were sourced to add interest and vitality to the various interiors.  Bespoke joinery was designed and manufactured for practical storage, visual impact, and to create individual spaces reflecting the tastes of the children.

Each interior was to be completely furnished and the house presented in ‘turn key’ finish. The top floor, which presented as a large living space was to be reconfigured into the Master Suite complete with en-suite and adjoining dressing room. Transforming the upper floor became a favourite component for the designers – Studio 44 converted the simple living space into a master suite that provides an intimate and cocooning environment, and also allows the owner an option to sit and work away from the family or watch TV.

During the renovation, Studio 44 discovered a false wall which hid a previously unused kitchenette. By removing the wall and the kitchenette the studio manifested additional space; making use of this, Studio 44 implemented a bank of bespoke wardrobes without impinging on the overall space of the room. 

The furniture was chosen for both its provenance and durability to suit the needs of a family home, though the soft furnishings were selected based on origin and quality to prioritise luxury. The designers delivered on the clients brief and satisfied the needs of their family and lifestyle.
