Originally from Tralee, psychiatric nurse Pat bought his home in Stoneybatter 23 years ago with the intention of it being a ‘stepping-stone’ home, but he fell in love with the area and never wanted to leave.
Recently Pat has fallen out of love with his home and is keen for the cottage to have an entire facelift. A keen entertainer, Pat is desperate to revamp his home so that he can start inviting his friends over - something he has stopped doing.
Pat is a self confessed magpie and cannot bear to throw mementos and gifts away, but in a 50sqm cottage he knows that he desperately needs to de-clutter. Excited by this project, the designers look at ways to create clever storage solutions, and with invisible walls and fold-down dining tables Pat’s home will be unrecognizable when they are done.
Rooms: The entire 50sqm cottage
Main themes: Maximizing small spaces through clever design, retaining character when remodeling an older home and clever storage solutions and fold out furniture.
