‘How to maximise space in apartments and small spaces and live with less’ - From LR Darragh Breathnach MRIAI, Róisín Murphy MRIAI, Eva Byrne FRIAI interviewed by Sandra O'Connell, RIAI Director of Communication

 The RIAI were delighted to partner this year with the Irish Times to deliver an exciting programme of architect-led talks at their Home & Design Theatre. The aim of the panel discussions and interviews was to advise homeowners on how to maximise the potential of a home – from renovations to extensions and from adapting small spaces to new builds.

‘From G to B – How to improve the BER energy rating of your home’ - An Interview with Darragh Lynch

The Ideal Home Show took place in Dublin’s RDS Simmonscourt from Friday 20 – Sunday 22 April. The topics reflected the latest trends in homeowner queries such as ‘The Fixer-Upper – how to renovate a home in stages to suit a budget,; ‘From G to B – how to improve the BER energy rating of your home’; and ‘How to maximise space in apartments and small spaces and live with less’. With many people opting to build on family land or in back gardens, there is also special talk on how to deliver great design solutions for such sites.
