Meet the team that makes it all happen
Interior Architect & Project Manager
Our culinary expert, Orla obtained her BA in Interior Design and Architecture while studying at Dublin Institute of Technology, Dublin. She has over 18 years experience and has worked in many industries including hospitality, retail, healthcare, office and corporate. During her time with us, Orla has designed and project managed many large scale projects including the Silverbirch Hotel – New Extension, The Dublin Skylon Hotel – Bar & Grill, the 4-Star Cabra Castle Hotel, Mantis NiteClub, 4-Star Castleknock Hotel and County Club and the 4-Star Beleek Castle; to name but a few!
Amy completed her degree in Interior Architecture and Design at Griffith College Dublin and joined the team having previously worked at another design practice. Amy has nine years design experience specialising in the hospitality and retail sector and has been with us from the very start. Don’t be fooled by her angelic looks, she packs a punch with her design skills and has worked on numerous projects including the 5-Star Bellingham Castle, 5-Star Lough Erne Resort, the 4-Star Cabra Castle Hotel, Customs House Restaurant & Wine Bar, Devon Inn Function Room, Balmoral Hotel Belfast, Bar & Restaurant and the 18th Century Gothic Styled Markree Castle in Sligo.
Andrea joined the team as a junior designer and within months has moved up the ranks currently running her own projects alongside Audrey. She earned her bachelor honours degree in Interior Design from the University of Ulster in Belfast and has previously worked for a high-end interior design and fit out company, based in Belfast. Hailing from Donegal and adding to the female workforce in the office, the rivalry is fierce during the run-up to GAA games! Andrea is hugely passionate about design and fashion and is known for being calm and very level-headed while on site.
Design Studio Manager
Róisín is our Design Studio Manager and is responsible for all ‘behind the scenes’ elements of design projects and also the efficient running of our studio. She holds a bachelor honours degree in Interior Architecture earned at IT Sligo and more recently gained a qualification in Digital Creativity from IT Blanchardstown. She is our ‘go-to’ girl when it comes to office IT and is also responsible for managing all channel, digital marketing and our digital media. Her love of coffee helps to keep the design studio alert with a fresh pot always on standby!
When it comes to the accounts Fiona Simpson has it all under control. Fiona manages the books with a strong and accurate hand and is the person responsible for invoices in and out. She is one well-travelled lady and when not in the office she is well known on the ski slopes of France!
And finally, our photographer. He’s a bit like the Stig from Top Gear in so many ways. Not only does he have a passion for engines but he also likes to remain behind the scenes……or should we say ‘behind the camera’. Niall is responsible for all our professional photography. He also takes on other projects providing excellent quality imagery for hotels, nightclubs and corporate clients.
