Ethos

McGarry Ní Éanaigh Architects is a design-based award-winning experienced architectural practice established in 1985. Our practice provides a client-focused design service predicated on respect, honesty, creativity, and professionalism.

We are passionate about design and how it can enhance human activity. We bring an understanding of how spaces and buildings are and might be used, based on over thirty years of experience in the design and the delivery of successful projects.

Our built work ranges from the bespoke fit out of a single office space to large education buildings, from furniture to pedestrian bridges, from living rooms to civic spaces [hyperlink]. The quality of our work has been recognised in over 70 major national and international design excellence awards.

We lead an inclusive design and project management process based on team endeavour involving a wide range of players from the client/end user, design team through to the building contractor and the wider community.

We carefully analyse client needs, producing design solutions that give spatial coherence to often complex situations involving competing criteria. We communicate effectively using a range of media appropriate to the situation. Physical models figure prominently in all of our projects.

Michael McGarry and Siobhán Ní Éanaigh are the founding and manging partners / directors with responsibility for the overall design output and service content of the practice. Matt MacDonagh-Dumler is a director with particular expertise in project delivery, detail design, the law relating to construction, procurement, compliance, and contract.
