Our story

Our background

L’Estrange Designs was founded in 2015 by Jill L’Estrange following her return to Ireland after years living abroad, working in architecture and property development. The company was borne from a vision to bring exciting and innovative spaces to Ireland, something she had taken a keen interest in while working overseas. Since the beginning, L’Estrange Designs have had a passion to create eye-catching spaces. Carving out a niche in the commercial market, we handle a range of projects, from hotels, restaurants, and bars, to leisure spaces, offices, and small business. Each project has its own unique requirements and we offer hands-on, personalised design solutions.

Building from strength to strength, over the past number of years L’Estrange Designs has had projects featured in multiple publications, as seen on our press page. Alongside features, L’Estrange Designs has been both Nationally and Internationally shortlisted for awards, with 2019 seeing the scheme for Nutbutter being shortlisted in the Fast Casual sector for the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards worldwide.

Founder | Creative Director

Jill is the founder and creative director of L’Estrange Designs. With a lifelong passion for design, and all things creative, Jill comes from a family of entrepreneurs.  From an early age, she was greatly interested in establishing her own business within the design community.

After receiving a First Class Honours Degree in Architecture from University College Dublin, Jill worked for a year as an architect in both Paris and Beijing. Following that, she gained valuable experience in high-end residential property development and project management in London, before eventually returning to Dublin and working in a New Homes property team as a Design and Market Analyst. During this period, Jill took the opportunity to complete a higher diploma in Interior Design from the Dublin Institute of Design, qualifying with Distinction. Her rounded knowledge of the built environment, property and design, mean that Jill brings a unique perspective to each of her design projects. Inspired by travel and the International design community, she aspires to bring fresh, new and exciting ideas to Ireland, and is delighted to have projects across Europe now also.
