Award Winning Architecture

We are specialists in residential design

Newbuild ⬩ Rebuild


We create new homes from scratch and new homes from existing buildings.

Our extensive experience in residential work includes gaining planning permission in diverse settings. Sometimes the most viable option to create a new home in Dublin is to demolish and rebuild much of an old one.

Extension ⬩ Reconfiguration


We specialise in transforming & enlarging early- to mid-twentieth century houses into family homes for life, while carefully balancing planning considerations, cost, sustainability & practicality.

Many of these houses are executor sales which require full energy upgrades, so that often there is as much building work within the existing building shell.

Refurbishment ⬩ Conservation


Many people are drawn to the details of older properties - from Georgian townhouses to Art-Deco terraces.

Whether a protected structure or not, many of these possess attractive & often unique characteristics that our expertise can protect and enhance in creating something new and fresh.

Practice Philosophy

Listening ⬩ Process


We work closely with our clients, discussing ideas and concerns, exploring every option with drawings so the design can evolve to match their aspirations, lifestyle and budget.

By using the latest work practices including project visulations and Building Information modelling (BIM) software, we manage the project with certainty and efficiency.

Function ⬩ Liveability


A house needs to function practically to be a home: it needs to operate like a well-oiled machine before it can be really loved.

By involving our clients in the details of every work stage, we design and create liveable homes perfect for contemporary life.

Beauty ⬩ Simplicity


We believe things don't have to be complicated to be beautiful.

With attention to detail, carefully selected material palettes and creative use of natural light we aim to create attractive homes for life.

New project?


Tell us about your project

We are open to enquiries from anybody with an open mind and an interest in where they live.

Please click on the link above or call the office and we'll jot down some information about the project.

Once we know a little bit more we will come back to you with some general information.

This will include:
▸information about what the architect does
▸a broad indication of fees
▸building costs for similar projects.

If we are concerned about the viability of your project, we will flag it at this stage also.

We can also let you know about our availability to take on the project.


First meeting in our office

Having had a quick look at the project, the first consulation takes place in our office at no charge.

This is a chance to introduce ourseleves, familiarise ourselves with your property, talk through what you have in mind, budgets, timescales and how we work.

The first meeting will answer many of the most pressing queries that people are concerned about.

We can often print out a certain amount of information about the property before the meeting, but it's really useful to see photos of the house or site as it stands.


Formal fee proposal

Once we've got a clear idea of what is involved we issue a detailed fee proposal setting out the fees.

This will include:
▸our conditions of engagement
▸fees structure and invoicing schedule
▸information about other consultants
▸other expenses likely to arise
▸general information in relation to Health & Safety and Building Control

All going well, this becomes the contract document that is signed before we start work. We normally aim to start work within 1 month of receiving the signed fee agreement and confirmation of this is included as part of the fee proposal.
