Celeb architect Dermot Bannon designing Pippa O'Connor's K Club home

Dermot Bannon and Pippa O'Connor

Celebrity architect Dermot Bannon is the brains behind the re-design of Kildare woman Pippa O'Connor's K Club home.

Pippa and hubby Brian Ormond are currently renovating their €1.3m mansion located in Churchfields.

Pippa is sharing snippets of the transformation on her social media, mainly Instagram stories.

Some residents of the K Club had lodged objections against the couple's balcony extension plans. But they were given the green light by Kildare County Council.

Kitchen before & (swipe➡️) during & (swipe➡️) now nearly ready to be fitted we are so excited! Been dreaming & planning it for so long. This area needed a lot of work to make it feel bigger & brighter. I really think the kitchen should be the heart of the home. I love looking at peoples renovations & builds - I think it’s so interesting. I’ve found lots recently that I’m loving - have you any pages that document renovations /interiors that you love? I’m happy to share bits & pieces of ours as we go along as I know lots of people like it too. I was going to do a separate page just for house/interiors but maybe easier to keep on here? Also I have lots of pics re interiors on my ‘highlights’ above x #pippainteriors

Elsewhere, there was no shortage of reaction to last Sunday's Room To Improve.

Dermot Bannon's plans for a 100-years-old farmhouse on half an acre of land in South Tipperary were branded “terrible” by schoolteacher Katie.

Her husband Padraig inherited the house from his late uncle, and Katie's unusual criteria of a big china cabinet in the kitchen, and no open planned caused controversy.

But Dermot delivered to the young couple in the end.
