LOHA – Pembroke Lane

LOHA – Pembroke Lane

When the New York Times contact you, you immediately sit up in your chair. So when the picture editor from the Times called I did just that. They had a beautiful house in Dublin, which they wanted photographed. The house was designed by world renowned Irish born architect Lorcan o’Herlihy from LOHA who is based in Los Angeles for many years.

I immediately said yes of course. The story behind the house was a lovely lady called Ella Flynn is the owner. She is also living in California for many years. Another ex pat living in the USA James Doyle from Doyle Herman Design Associates was the landscape architect. The New York Times  wanted to show the whole Irish American connection with their homeland.

I ended up photographing the house by LOHA over 2 days and Ella ended up spending much of that time with me in the house. I have to say, straight away I connected with her. I was so impressed that she decided LOHA to design and build a bespoke, contemporary and unique house in Dublin at a time that to most doesn’t make financial sense. Every part of the house speaks style and only the best materials and finishes were used by LOHA. The end result is more than just a home. It is a beautiful piece of art, which will be there for many years to come.

As an architectural photographer I love to photograph this type of structure. I love everything to do with design and I love to bring out the best of all those lovely shapes and forms in structures.

I got such a rush when a copy of the New York Times was posted to me. You can also check out the images in a larger size in the portfolio by clicking here
