St. Catherines Church

Architect: Howley Hayes
Engineer: O Connor Sutton Cronin
Location: Dublin
Year: 2013

St. Catherines church was destroyed by a fire in 2012, which led to extensive redevelopment works. Particular care was required with the works as it was a heritage building and any additions had to be kept in sympathy with the architecture and as minimally intrusive as possible. We worked closely with Howley Hayes and OCSC, to come up with the lighting solution. Prolicht Glorious suspended fittings were used either side of the aisle. These architectural fittings incorporated the emergency lighting, which made for a subtle emergency lighting solution. They are also LED which will reduce maintenance and running costs. The project is shortlisted for an award in the RIAI architecture people’s choice awards 2015.
"I went into Willie's one day looking for a bulb for my bicycle lamp., I came out two hours later with 3 lamps, 4 shades and 6 kitchen chairs. I dont know what happened but the lights are lovely, the shades are hypnotic and the kitchen chairs are so comfortable that I have put on 3 stone. I'm still looking for a bulb for my bicycle lamp."
