Retail consultancy and design

Retail consultancy and design

The Bretzel Bakery, Portobello was a mixed-use project containing a bakery, café and residential units. The brief included the expansion of the existing retail and café space, and the refurbishment of the apartments, on a complex and historic site. We worked through survey and sketch designs with the client; engaged in both pre-planning and planning with the local authority; and integrated Fire Certificate and Disability Access Certificates,in collaboration with external consultants.

For Furlong & Keogh’s pop-up ice cream parlour in Dublin’s Liberties, we collaborated with the clients on health and safety and HSE liaison; engaged in planning consultation with the local authority; and undertook workflow and layout designs for the interior.

For the Rockababy Boutique in Celbridge we collaborated with the client on internal layouts and strategy, interior design, fittings, fabricators and suppliers.

Client comments

“Stephen and his colleagues took the time to really understand our vision. Constrained by a limited budget and tight deadlines, they came up with creative solutions to some very difficult problems that we encountered, resulting in a unique and smart design that we were very happy with. We would highly recommend him.”

“Working with Stephen was a complete joy. Hearing his many ideas and solutions made the renovation of my retail space an absolute dream to work on. The way he communicates with others on the job puts everyone at ease and working on the same page, which certainly took the pressure off making the project run smoothly. I am delighted with the finished design and look forward to working with him again in the future.”
