Another architect couple to add to our ever growing list are Carson and Crushell. Douglas and Rosaleen began their collaboration in 2003 following their graduation from University College Dublin where they first met. They have one son and one architectural practice, but no pets!
They design landscapes, buildings, interiors and furniture and also teach and write about the built environment. Based in London for six years, they worked for a number of award winning practices including Eric Parry Architects and Edward Cullinan Architects.
They then returned to Ireland and converted 8 Richmond Place, Rathmines into their home and offices.
As an ongoing work-in-progress they have conserved the existing historic fabric while introducing modern conveniences and new garden courtyards.
It is primarily made of calp limestone, soft yellow bricks, pitch pine, lime, sand, Wicklow slate, and North Dublin concrete blocks – with the occasional piece of granite, lead, steel and douglas fir.
