Founded by Courtney McDonnell in 2016, the Dublin based design studio provides Architecture and Interior Design services in both residential and commercial environments.
The ethos of the studio is the "Involvement in the Complete Design Process". As a studio, we are interested in the realisation of contemporary solutions to design, both architectural and interior design. We aspire to create beautiful spaces to occupy, and creative visuals to impress.
The studio works closely with the client to understand their needs and deliver a product which reflects their personality, daily lifestyle and work regimes. It is evident in our portfolio of work, that no particular style or design is repeated.
Each brief starts with a blank canvas, an open mind and a vision to make spaces that people love.
The blend of her personal style and an understanding of our desires led to a beautiful, practical, and unique home. We have found Courtney to be very thorough, approachable, quick and efficient and she is a pleasure to work with. "

Courtney McDonnell is a fully qualified and registered architect and a member of the RIAI. Courtney received both an Honours Degree in Architecture and Professional Diploma in Architectural Practice from the Dublin School of Architecture.
Her skills and experience range from Architectural Design to Interior Fit-Out as well as Graphic Design, Set Design, Branding and Web Design.
Having previously worked on many high profile projects in Ireland, U.K, Ukraine and New York, Courtney has over 10 years of experience in the industry and has worked as Project Architect on a wide range of architecture and interior projects, both domestic and commercial.
Her designs have been featured in various design publications including Architecture Ireland, Plan, Construction Ireland as well as in The Irish Independent and Irish Times.
Courtney finds design inspiration from many varied sources, from her home in Georgian Dublin, her upbringing on the West of Ireland, as well as on her travels both in Europe and further afield. Her other interests in fashion, art and craft all play a part in her design process and approach to form and structure. While her design style varies, Courtney enjoys an element of variation by choosing vibrant colourful interior proposals with minimal stripped back architecture to contrast.
Courtney has a real eye for detail and was constantly looking to improve every aspect of the project. Her creativity and passion for design allowed her to find innovative solutions to help us maximise our space, while making the gym look exceptional.
