Absolute Hotel

Well-known Irish property developers, O’Reilly & Associates appointed us as interior designers of their new upmarket hotel in Limerick – The Absolute Hotel. The brief called for the design to be Manhattan Loft style, integrated with certain chic industrial elements. Because the Irish embrace spaces that are warm & hearty, we worked with warm colours & textures to add further depth. Our pride & joy – all FF&E products for public areas were sourced, procured & manufactured right here in SA and then shipped across to site. We installed big-ticket items such as bars with our own team. As “foreign” designers, we were able to differentiate our interior style from that of other local designers, giving the interior design a unique edge.
