First mentioned in 1277 and owned by the Kamaun family since 1840, the “Red Eagle” (Roter Adler) – now lovingly known to guests and friends as the “Vögele,” or little bird – has been featured in many stories and tales. The site was home to secret meetings during World War II, and the password, “Vögele”, was known to only the most powerful and connected wartime tacticians. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, a German literary luminary of the 18th and 19th centuries, also appreciated the institution’s very special nature, since even back then the Red Eagle menu featured an outstanding selection of delicacies. Today, the restaurant still hosts the longest-standing regular meeting of patrons anywhere in South Tyrol, with guests gathering to debate and discuss current topics. Artist, host city personality, life artist, original, jack of all trades: This is Karl Kamaun. A young team of architects and designers, noa* (network of…

The property is a three storey over basement seafront house at Ardenza Terrace in Monkstown, Dublin. The building is a protected structure dating from 1854. When the owners purchased the house as a family home in 2013 it was in need of complete refurbishment, in addition a small extension was added to the rear as part of the works. The front façade of the house is north facing, with the result that the main reception rooms, whilst having fantastic sea views, were without sunlight. The design introduced a kitchen / family room space stretching from front to rear at ground floor. This flows into the new glazed dining room extension which connects the living areas with the south facing garden. The formal drawing room was retained at the first floor, with the master bedroom at second floor overlooking Dublin bay. Ornate plasterwork and original joinery details were restored throughout the…

Comprising four underground rooms and two light filled courtyards, the boutique basement bar showcases custom designed whisky cabinets with wall-to-wall, rich American oak joinery. The history remains with exposed sandstone, original fireplaces and hardwood ceilings forming the back drop to the space, complimented with tanned antique leather furniture.Maintaining the integrity of the Heritage listed building forged a path for the design with no wall fixings, protective floor layers and all detailing preserving the original fabric of the site. Working with such a significant building structure, the palette…
