Michael Ó Mara Interior Design worked with architects John O’Neil and Associates to completely remove the original penthouse that sat atop this four-story apartment building in Dublin.  The light-filled, luxury penthouse that they then created uses refined materials in a contemporary and classic design.

The tall windows that line the living room and bedroom open to a view of rooftops and the Dublin Bay.  The view is particularly wonderful from the bedroom, where you can easily imagine enjoying coffee on a lazy weekend morning.

The residents of this penthouse can also enjoy its bay views from a patio lined with potted trees.  The classic look of these topiaries contrasts with a modern railing to create a natural transition between the penthouse’s glazed walls and the building’s older exterior.

Inside, the design team added interesting details throughout, including a bespoke walnut door and shadow gap door framing.  Clean lines and light colors draw your attention to the fine detailing. [Photography and information courtesy of Michael Ó Mara Interior Design and John O’Neil and Associates]
