COURTNEY MCDONNELL  MRIAI P.DIP ARCH B.ARCH

 

Principal Architect & Founder

Courtney received her bachelor degree and professional disploma from Dublin School of Architecture in Bolton Street. She is a member of the Royal Architects of Ireland. 

Before establishing her own design practice, Courtney worked for SSA Architects where she gained extensive experience on many high profile commercial projects in Ireland and Overseas, as well as many private residential projects in Dublin and further afield. Courtney is particularly interested in residential design, its scale, level of detail and the personal relationships established between architect and client in the process.  

Courtney finds design inspiration from many varied sources, from her home in Dublin City, her upbringing on the West of Ireland, as well as on her travels both in Europe and further afield. Her other interests in fashion, art, photography all play a part in her design process and approach to form and structure. 

SERVICES

As a studio, we offer a full range of architectural, interior design and project management services.

Our role as architect and designer covers the entire construction process from an initial pre-design phase, through the planning process, to tender negotiations, contract administration and on site management during the construction stage. We work in both commercial and residential sectors in both Architectural Design and Interior Fit Out. We understand that each project is unique and we can offer tailored packages to suit your needs.

As well as Architectural and Interior Design, we work with other creative industries such as graphic designers, lighting designers, landscape architects, signpainters, to create visually stunning projects particularly within the commercial sector.
