10 Mill Street
The brief given to me was to explore the adaptive reuse of an existing building, a protected structure into a 5-star boutique hotel. My style has developed over the years since a young age. I have always had a huge amount of interest in all things creative. I have experience in art, from teaching in art schools, to spending time at NCAD practising Fine Art Print. I now would like to expand this skill into the design world and use the creativity from this experience to explore all things beautiful in Interior Design.

I am a final year Interior Design Student excited to move forward with my work. I love to develop my ideas through sketch design. I am a creative and passionate person. For this project, I was inspired by the beautiful elements from the original building on my site visit to 10 Mill Street. A patina effect. I decided to pull this into my design also with a modern twist which leads out into my extensions. My client, James Jameson played a huge part. He himself has aged overtime like a fine whiskey! A patina effect will stand out throughout this design and the warm golden tones and amber hues will shine through, as if they would in a glass of fine Irish whiskey.
