Georgian Dublin – Pied a Terre by Hélène Broderick Interiors

Hélène Broderick Interiors have been shortlisted for Interior Design Scheme – Europe Award in The International Design and Architecture Awards 2020. 

Hélène Broderick Interiors were given complete control of the design for this apartment refurbishment. The aim was to create a classic yet contemporary interior that was also in keeping with the period of the property, ensuring that all changes and additions were sympathetic with the property’s heritage; from the cornices, to the ceiling roses, and joinery elements. The client wanted the property to epitomise the ultimate in luxury, and for Hélène Broderick Interiors to create something truly beautiful where they could live and entertain.

The 1000 square foot, 2 bedroom apartment in Georgian Dublin, Ireland underwent a classic, contemporary and sympathetic refurbishment. Leading the renovation and design for the home in Ballsbridge, Hélène Broderick Interiors ensured that the property encapsulates modern luxury whilst still paying homage to both it’s history and surroundings. The designers had to ensure that modernising the property would not be at the expense of it’s heritage.

Hélène Broderick Interiors opened up the original bi-folding doors which closed off between the main reception room and master bedroom, providing a connection between the two rooms. This transformed this space to a glorious natural light filled area. Wallpaper panels further provide a visual connection between these two rooms, and are complemented by custom-made chandeliers from Villaverde. Since space in this city apartment is limited, Hélène Broderick Interiors developed the idea for a concealed kitchen that when covered could double as a display unit to showcase the client’s ornaments, rather than incorporating a separate kitchen.

The main area of the apartment features grand rooms with high ceilings, exuding luxury, and a sense of grandeur. The period cornices, ceiling roses and doors are blended with the classic contemporary bespoke furnishings, marrying the history of the space with a contemporary dynamic. Ballsbridge is an area with many fine Victorian & Georgian period properties and so the scale and grandeur of the design of the apartment reflects its neighbouring properties, and seamlessly blends in.
