biography

In 2021 I graduated from Griffith College Dublin with a First Class Honours in BA Interior Design. I have an eclectic mix of careers and experiences of which some include: running my own business creating bespoke nursery decor & gifts, designing and fitting out show houses for a local builder, Spa Therapist in 4 star Hotel Carton House and working for an airline. I believe these experiences bring with them a wealth of understanding in a lot of different areas and how design can have an impact on how a space is used. I am looking to further my career by gaining experience in an interior design firm/interior architecture firm. The Chocolate Factory our final year project, is a concrete structure originally built for a sweet and jam company Williams & Woods. My design for the building incorporates the collaborative creative community that works here now, by opening up spaces, removing walls and allowing people to meet and share ideas. The spatial planning is designed around the core of the building – stemming from the concept – Core Values, thus creating meeting points and bright collaborative spaces.

Break out areas are an important feature in my design. Colour and nature are added to inject an element of fun, energy and sources of inspiration. Sensory elements promote a tropical green feel and promote an overall wellness.
Meeting spaces & hot desks. An environmental approach to waste & energy loss is implemented through the choice of furniture made from recycled material, the use of motion sensor lights in stairs & bathrooms. Secondary glazing retains heat and PV panels on the roof produce electricity & hot water.
Ground Floor Cafe & Taproom – Universal design principles are implemented by applying lights to handrails & slip resistant colour contrasted nosing strips to stairs. Motion sensor taps & automatic open doors. Large touch buttons on lifts with audio.
