Hi, i’m Eric

Eric Stilwell

MSc, BSc (Hons) Arch. Tech.

Born and raised near Johannesburg, South Africa, I moved to Ireland in 1999 and have since lived in Dublin, rural Carlow and, now Dunshaughlin. I was the Lead Designer for Joe Fallon Design, an award-winning architectural practice, for six years before founding The Design Lab in 2020.

My love of architecture, and home design in particular, goes back as long as I can remember. I have a natural flair for design and an understanding of function and space – my style is simple, timeless and context-sensitive. I relish in the challenge of an awkward site and a limited budget, and always aim to exceed the expectations of my clients in terms of design, light, space and functionality.

Involvement in my local church has taught me the value and importance of working within a team, along with valuable leadership skills. I strive to make simple the complex, to complete a project no matter the effort, and to achieve a holistic approach to my life and work.

I enjoy spending time with family, good food, being in the outdoors and travelling to far-flung places.
