Anyone ever see his architecture programme on RTE? 

The sh*te designs he fawns overConfused  Pure pretentious, over intellectualised rubbish.

Any of the stuff he designs looks like a shipping container.   And he brings people to houses he thinks are nice and they are shocking.

Episode 3, Moate | Room To Improve, Series 10 — COCO Content

Private Dwelling Moate - Crannog Roofing



Look at this kitchen.  Looks like a staff kitchen that nurses would use in a hospital to make a cup of Bovril in

Dermot Bannon: we need to talk about storage

The boarded floor looks like it was pulled up from the local parish hall in the 1960s.

He was orgasming over that gaff with the auditorium, as he does for most of these so called homes he visits.

These places aren’t homes. Hollow, soulless buildings that give me the creeps. The type of place Patrick Bateman would reside.

The state of them.  Sterile boxes.  See the state of that bathroom with the lime green? Like something out of The Shining FFS and him w**king over it.

I remember seeing one episode about a year ago.  Some couple hired him to re-do their gaff.  Yer wan hated what he was coming up with and wouldn't go along with itLOL

There's a gaff just built not far from me in a housing estate. Sticks out like a sore thumb from all the rest which are homogenous design.  A shipping container stuck on the roof of a converted garage. Like something he'd come up with.  Yes lets turn your semi detached run of the mill estate house into a freak show.

It actually does look like the Lidl in Cabra.

what does it matter what your house looks like from the outside.  You live inside the house so whatever design that allows you to have a house that suits your needs is the correct one. 

All of his stuff is the same really.

But we are commenting houses of people that have chosen to put them on display, so of course there will be a critique - inside or out.

Fair enough but the rebuttal to that is that the function of the house is what Bannon is after not what it looks like outside.   Often these two things are in competition with each other.  A nice looking house from the outside means it doesn’t work inside

I disagree. I dont forensically watch the show but those that i have viewed, i've seen him agonise over both internal and external aesthetics and functionality. Pantone of bricks and how to allow as much light in etc.

Yes getting the light in is key but in order to do that it means many of the houses look the same and would be considered ugly by trap junior and others.

Bannon's houses tend to be cold and clinical inside and hideous on the outside

The inside of them looks a bit like the Industrial Zone in the Crystal Maze

Sorry, the Futuristic Zone in the Crystal Maze, not the Industrial Zone

It's been a while

This is the Futuristic Zone from "The Crystal Maze Live Experience" in Shaftesbury Avenue, London

Might as well be the inside of a Dermot Bannon house

I like my architecture to be of the Ye Olde British Colonial type 

Though I am also a fan of Brutalism in the right context

Brutalism is actually the only major contribution to aesthetically pleasing architecture since Art Deco

It's the only non-brutal genre of modern architecture, which is a bit ironic
