THE DAVENPORT HOTEL
The MDO design fuses traditional features such as wall paneling with contemporary elements of lighting, joinery and furniture to update this classic Dublin property.
The Davenport Hotel was built in early 1990s following a fire in the original building on the site, the Merrion Hall. The building is mentioned in James Joyce’s Ulysses but the beautiful historic façade is all that remained after the fire.
8 - 10 Merrion Street, Dublin
70,000 sq ft
THE PRESIDENT'S BAR
The President’s Bar is a Dublin institution beloved of politicians and business people for its discreet atmosphere.
The new design reinforces this with a rich club-like interior of dark blues and burnished golds. Use of 3D BIM models and CGIs allowed the client to clearly see the new layouts and finishes in advance of proceeding to construction on site.
The colour palette and finishes are rich in tone and texture with all lighting provided in the bedroom area from lamps.
In the bedrooms, full width sheers and curtains are used to disguise that the existing windows are small, while also adding a sense of luxury. A new blackout fabric is used to allow for a lighter thickness in the full width curtains. Bathrooms are tiles in white marble to convey a sense of traditional luxury.
CONFERENCE & EVENTS
AT THE DAVENPORT
Our 3D BIM models allowed for multiple configurations of the function rooms to be worked out by the hotel in advance and to be used for their brochures, ensuring advanced sales of the space.
The function rooms on the lower ground floor continue the theme of tradition luxury. Wall paneling, beveled mirrors bronze bars combine with a bespoke carpet and curtains to give a space that is flexible for both weddings and conferences. Bespoke bronze lights with oyster silk shades create a strong visual.
