We were really impressed by Gwen and Divine Design. They analysed the design and customer service issues before they put forward their solutions. This led to really powerful break through thinking around how we could redesign our very busy bars to improve the speed of service and customer experience. Not only were the final designs really outstanding but we also achieved significant uplift in sales.
One of the things that most impressed me also dealing with Gwen and her team was the fact that they were so flexible in dealing with my sometimes changing and very busy schedule. They always worked around it and knowing time is of the essence were highly organised when we did meet so that no time was wasted – options were given but not so many that it was confusing – Gwen understood the brief over 4 different bars and delivered ideas that were very clear for each of the projects and also understood my desire for quality and finish but with a tight rein on budget and deadline as well.
It has been our pleasure to work with the team at Divine Design in creating a wonderful event space within the Teeling Whiskey Distillery, where our guests can savour the great range of Teeling Whiskeys in an exclusive and sympathetic environment.
The design concept and realisation has been successful in achieving the flexibility that we desired. We are now able to offer the Alchemy Room as a venue for a whole range of events, from private whiskey tastings, corporate meetings, private dining and product launches.
The project, from design to build, went completely smoothly and we particularly appreciated the team’s flexibility, passion and talent in creating an exciting new Dublin venue.
We recently had the pleasure of working alongside Gwen Kenny of Divine Design on a protected listed building. Gwen and her team were always sensitive to the historic character of the building during a complex refurbishment programme.
Gwen demonstrated her creativity, comprehensive knowledge of materials and excellent interior design skills on many occasions, resulting in a harmonious blend of the traditional and modern. This combined with Gwen’s good advice, management and professionalism ensured the project came in on time and budget.
Divine Design priorities are; attention to detail, programme and budget in their designs and I would therefore highly recommend their services
It was a pleasure working with Gwen and the Divine Design team as they project coordinated the development of my restaurant, Medley, in the iconic Irish Times building. The whole team were professional and responsive to all design concerns and worked diligently together to make sure everything ran as smoothly as possible.
This efficiency led to the project being completed in a timely manner, and made me confident and excited to open my wonderful new restaurant. Gwen and her team were beyond helpful every step of the way and I would highly recommend Divine Design as a project coordinator for any project.
Divine Designs bar and restaurant refurbishments aren’t just good to look at, they really work. Gwen Kenny and her team work with leading edge design concepts and materials that work extremely well in a very trend-driven industry. What sets this company apart, however, is that they can design and build so that clients are assured of the same attention to detail right through a whole project.
I had the good luck to have Gwen work for me during an extremely stressful time when my house was also being filmed for ‘Room to Improve’. I dread to think what I would have done without her or her amazing team of professionals.
Every trade person that was provided by Gwen worked to the highest of standards and with the best of good humour and grace. I strongly recommend Gwen and Divine Design for any job- big or small. She has a unique gift of fulfilling exactly what her client needs and wants.
I cannot thank you enough for getting me to where I am today, living in a wonderfully stylish and comfortable apartment. You and your team have worked wonders.
Of course, I didn’t make things easy for you with being overseas during the complete renovation of the apartment. You absorbed the stress and pain for me and, as the project manager, you were literally my eyes and ears. It wasn’t easy managing the various stakeholders but you did it with a grace and patience that has left a lasting positive impression on everyone. Despite the protracted negotiations with the building management engineers you ensured that I was able to move into the apartment, on time, just before Christmas.
You amazed me with innovative solutions for storage and use of space. Your vision, expert knowledge and superb attention to detail along with your relationship with talented craftsmen ensured a top-class finish for which I am very grateful. Of course, I know that none of this would be possible without the support of your fantastic team.
I am thankful for all you did to make life easy for me and am really delighted with the end result.
