Shane Cotter and Kathryn Wilson set up their practice in their home town of Dublin in 2010. Their Blackpitts project was key to the practice's development, and other work includes the refurbishment and extension of a house in Milltown, Dublin. The pair have also used their love of drawing to introduce school children to architecture by participating in workshops, which developed into the local DRAW programme.
