Kelland Real Estate plans to be on the move in a few months, but the question on staff lips at the end of last week was: which design?
The small firm established by Deborah Kelland (below) in Bath St, Parnell, operates from open rented premises with large floor-to-ceiling windows opening on to a sheltered balcony.
Ms Kelland has bought an old villa in the middle of the small Gladstone Rd shopping centre, up from the Rose Gardens and across the Parnell gully, but wanted her staff’s views on which design to opt for. The choice, between Jasmax, Brent Hulena and Fearon Hay, should be decided this week.
All designs have a gallery, and the design of Geoff Fearon and Tim Hay also has a tree inside an atrium, with the gallery looking on to it. The 404mÂ² site allows for a net 404mÂ² of floor area.
“We hope to be in by October,” Ms Kelland said.
