Orminston House Belfast
The restoration of Historical Orminston House Belfast. The house laid empty for many years before being purchased and restored back into a private residence.
On the original stairway, it had a very unusual window, three large panels depicting geometrical patterns with Irish symbols of Ulster and Ireland. The original windows it’s said were painted by a draughtman from the Harland and Wolf shipbuilders yard in Belfast. Unfortunately, over the years the paint had faded and lifted due possibly to underfiring, resulting in just shadowy images now visible.
The brief was to recreate new windows and reproduced the original designs onto curved glass to fit into the new curved window frames. The original panels were saved and are exhibited in the house.
