Simon Open Door Consultations 2017

Paul Mulhern

We took part in the 2017 Simon Open Door Consultations last weekend and are delighted that our donated time and expertise raised precisely €1,080 for the homeless charity. 

Over the lifetime of the annual open door events over €700,000 has been raised for the Simon Communities of Ireland.   Simon Open Door is a fantastic scheme. It benefits both the Simon Communities of Ireland and members of the public. Anyone can sign up and in return for a €90 donation to Simon receive an hour long consultation with a certified RIAI Architect.

This year we did 12 architectural consultations for homeowners who were considering various projects including home remodelling and renovation; house extensions to increase space, bring in more light and connect more fully with their gardens, and a number of proposed new-build houses.  It was interesting and exciting for us all to discuss potential, especially where the homeowners had been previously concerned that they had limited options.

We got fantastic feedback from everyone who attended about the information they got on everything from design potential to planning matters, building costs and the whole process involved in embarking on a building project with an architect.

Since 2005, the Simon Open Door initiative has been a permanent fixture in the calendar of RIAI Architects who, open their offices and offer their time and expertise to members of the public. Every cent raised goes toward's the work of the Simon Communities of Ireland.

Simon Open Door Day 2016 - Architect Consultations

Paul Mulhern

Unfortunately I'm not around to open my door for the Simon Open Door Day on May 14th & 15th this year.  However, if anyone would like a consultation and can't make those dates either I am happy to facilitate on alternative dates and we can send off your cheque to Simon at the session. More details on this year's Simon Open Door Day below.

Simon Communities of Ireland work with people who experience homelessness and housing exclusion in Ireland. Simon has a vision of society where no one is homeless. All people who are homeless, or at risk of facing homelessness, are given every opportunity to realise their potential to live fulfilled lives in appropriate homes of their own.

The annual Simon Open Door event takes place over Saturday and Sunday, 14th and 15th May 2016. Members of the public can now book a consultation with a RIAI Registered Architect by signing up at www.simonopendoor.ie. The donation of €70.00 will go directly to the Simon Community of Ireland as all Architects are giving their time and expertise for free.

Monies raised through the Simon Open Door campaign will go directly to assist some of the most vulnerable people in our society, those without a place to call home.

You can sign up for an appointment by contacting Paul Mulhern directly HERE or with other registered Architects at www.simonopendoor.ie.  As mentioned above this might suit those who can't make the 14th/15th May dates and we can send off your cheque to Simon at the session.

Music in Monkstown Festival 2015

Paul Mulhern

A WEEKEND OF MUSIC AND CELEBRATION

The second "Music in Monkstown" festival will present some of Ireland's leading musicians in a weekend of classical music and celebration from 18-20 September 2015.  Concerts will take place in the wonderful setting of Church of Ireland Parish Church, Monkstown, Co Dublin.

Music in Monkstown also announced that there will be two evenings of post concert Jazz @10pm @FXB's bar and restaurant on the Saturday and Sunday nights, thanks to the generous support of Newpark Music Centre.

Music in Monkstown is the brain-child of the RTE National Symphony Orchestra's principal clarinetist and Monkstown resident John Finucane, supported by other enthusiastic local music lovers. After an incredibly successful inaugural festival in 2014, MIM is back with another three days of fantastic classical music programming.

All five concerts will be held in Monkstown Parish Church.  The festival is supported by Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council.

Monkstown has been home to Hofler Architects since 1992 and is one of the loveliest remaining villages in the Dublin area, with many amenities to hand. It has plenty of appealing shops, good places to eat and drink and the ambiance is one of relaxed elegance. Already a popular venue for classical music concerts, we are delighted to bring Monkstown its very own music festival.

MONKSTOWN PARISH CHURCH

The venue for all our Music in Monkstown concerts, Monkstown Parish Church was redesigned by the prolific 19th century church architect John Semple, who also created the Mansion House's Round Room in Dublin city centre. The church was a particular favourite of Sir John Betjeman, the British Poet Laureate and church historian who served as Press Attache with the Britisch Embassy in Dublin in the early 1940s. For him Monkstown Parish Chruch, which he visited frequently when staying with Gate Theatre founder Lady Wicklow who lived nearby, was on of the best examples of Semple's work around the city's suburbs.
