“As a new arrival in Dublin I was extremely fortunate to be introduced to CAST and to engage them. They have transformed the house I bought from the unusual to the exceptional. It is now open to the vista of the garden, filled with light, and framed with beautifully designed oak screens and cabinetry. It is at the same time spacious yet intimate.They suggested and sourced beautiful, sharply designed and unusual lighting and fittings and they solved complex technical problems. They also revolutionised the appearance of the storage space at the front of the house so that interior and the exterior were congruent. It is a pleasure to live in, and to entertain in. The key factors in this outcome were – their ability to ask the right questions and to listen carefully to the answers, and then to present the possibilities visually, great attention to detail and rigor in documentation and planning, uncompromising focus on the quality and supervision of the work, tolerance for client uncertainty and change of mind, accessibility and availability and openness to debate – i.e. there is always a solution. The team have been a delight to work with. It has been fun, and felt like a real partnership. I would strongly recommend them if you want to enhance the beauty and comfort of your house and thus the quality of your life.” Client, Reworking, Waterloo Lane, Dublin, June 2012
“And then it was done, and it is amazing. The living room is so bright and spacious. The strange thing is the space is not about feet and inches; it’s about how open the room feels and the fact that we can see the walls! We still have bookshelves and books but they are part of the room now, not just crammed in. The window in the living room is, in our mind, the centre of the room. The stoop in front of the house is a great spot to hang out in, with its raised height and the bench, which sits in the sunniest spot right beside the front door. We got everything we wanted, including the things we did not know we wanted!” Client, Out the Front Extension, Tallaght 2010
“We engaged the services of CAST architecture earlier this year in the remodeling of our reception rooms, hall and bathroom. We could not recommend them more highly. Their plans…have transformed our house and quality of life. Their attention to detail, patience and friendly and professional manner made it a pleasure to work with the. For us CAST’s input was undoubtedly the most important component of the job. We would highly recommend them to anyone.” Client, Furniture Terenure, Dublin, November 2009.
“I had the pleasure of working with CAST Architecture from 2007 to 2009. At all times I was impressed by the professionalism and enthusiasm shown by Sarah Cremin, co-director of CAST architecture. I commissioned the practice to make designs for the construction of a small house in the side garden of my residence. Design ideas were communicated very clearly and the finished design was exactly as I would have wished for, given the rather confined site. I would have no hesitation in recommending this practice to any of my friends who might be seeking the services of a young, modern and totally dedicated team of architects.” Client, Suburban House Stillorgan, Dublin, October 2009.
