THE TOWERS BAR
The Towers Bar presented a unique opportunity given it's location to update and refresh the whole look, giving it a New England/Hamptons feel. Trendy, but also cosy. From the sandy floors to the nautical mirrors and marine flags spelling out the Towers. The aquarium feature, set into the bar, a great focal point which can be seen from all aspects of the bar, reminds you of the wonderful marine setting in which the bar is located on the shores of Westport. The cool greys and bespoke ornamental features sourced locally and abroad by myself provide a wonderful backdrop for any occasion.
The main thrust of the clients brief was to maintain the existing traditional values of the pub but to create a modern spin on the existing bar. Following on from this I looked to create a luxurious and sophisticated clean space. The overall style linked back to the original look and feel but giving the customer a feeling of a new and contemporary space by updating the bar area with metropolitan style from the fashionable tyling and lighting to the rich leather finish.
THE CONNACHT WHISKEY COMPANY
Working closely with the architect and the shareholders of the Connacht Whiskey company to take this space to a whole new level. Not going with the usual traditional theme, the whole retail space is open, inviting, colourful and bright. My role was to source and choose flooring, lighting, seating and a variety of other features to include merchandising and to perfect the customer user experience of the retail space.
