From Drawing to Reality


I had cause today to reflect on the year 2001 when we were deeply engaged on the wonderful Killarney Castle.


The files revealed the joy of making: of a drawing becoming a reality. Looking back, it seemed appropriate that such an historic Building should have its new generation of details drawn by hand.


Apart from the furniture and light, every element in this picture was renewed. It was hand drawn and specified, the flooring, skirting, cornice, the oversized door, right down to the handle on the sliding door. 

Of course, these days we use the computer to convey the same message, but the joy of making something that is fit for use and in context still remains.
