Brightblue Studio is a hybrid architecture studio and glass workshop. Our passion for sustainable design is evident throughout our work. We believe the best architecture emerges from the integration of good design with social and environmental responsibility, which fuses with our experience as a working glass studio to create inventive solutions to our clients’ needs.
Brightblue was established in 2004 and is based by the sea, in a building which is also an exemplar of the work we do. Currently being renovated, Ballard’s Smoke House makes the most of its orientation and location, using sustainable design and materials to achieve Activhaus standard. It represents a strong connection with the environment which is at the heart of the practice.
Brightblue was highly commended for the Best Domestic Extension North East LABC Building Excellence Award in 2011, and by Sculpture in Context for 2004’s Cut Glass installation in Dublin’s National Botanical Gardens. They have also been selected for several prestigious large-scale sculptural installations in buildings.
