Awards & Certificates

In 2006 we were awarded the Pearsons Prize for "Best Restoration Project" in Britain and Ireland.

St. Annes, Portmarnock

St. Anne´s church in Portmarnock underwent a comprehensive refurbishment in 2006 and in 2009 we were commissioned by Fr. Comber and Mr. David Sweeney, on behalf of the parish committee, to produce stained glass windows to be installed behind the Altar. The brief set by the client was to introduce colour flow to the interior of the building to enhance the Altar as the focal point of the church. There was no specific theme set by the client other than that the design was to be contemporary to suit the modern interior of the church. Based on client requirements and the interior of the church we produced a series of design concepts and through a series of consultations, the final designs where chosen.

As the building is situated beside the coast we decided to incorporate maritime imagery associated with Jesus Christ within the design. We introduced the impression of a fishing net in the background of the designs using various marine based colours and inserted bold red abstract fishes, symbols of Christ, in the foreground. The abstract leaded glass was made using French & German handmade glass unique for its colour range and translucency. The project was installed in early 2010 and is an example of an interesting way to enhance the interior of a building through contemporary design.
