Oscar&Oscar [a Reclamation and Design company] was created by us, Orla Maguire and Martin Barrett.
We are both fully qualified architects with 17 years experience between us and as fate would have it, our paths crossed at the right time, we liked the cut of each other's jib and we decided to create a new company. The fact that we both had a dog named Oscar might have been the clincher.
Thankfully too, or Northern Ireland's most innovative and exciting design firm [someone else's words] might have been called something pretty naff. Instead ladies and gentlemen, we give you Oscar&Oscar.
We're architects so we do architecture stuff including interiors. We love furniture so we do furniture stuff too. We're scavengers of demolished structures so we collect the good bits and find ways to reuse them.
Reclamation and Design. It's crazy but it might work.
