We see our purpose being to create life-enriching architecture by designing buildings that are sustainable, appropriate and beautiful.
We design to the highest ecological standards and our goal is that all our designs will be entirely zero- carbon by 2026. We’re intent upon making the most of existing homes and buildings, with renovation, recycling and reuse often being a more economical and subtle option than entirely new construction.
Because we live and work in an area with its own unique character and history, we work to create buildings that reflect our regional identity by respecting both our traditional past and a forward- looking present. We want what we design to be right for our time, location, environment and our client’s wishes while having the flexibility to adapt to future needs and developments.
These ideas are important, but together they don’t create architecture. It’s our job to add the creativity that transforms buildings to something more than the sum of their parts, to give them life and joy. Adding this transcendent quality is our greatest challenge and our greatest satisfaction.
Ultimately we expect our designs to reach beyond our clients’ aspirations, and to enable people to live and work in buildings that are beautiful and that promote healthy, happy living for everyone.

The company of Allan Curran Architects has to be one of the finest groups of talented architects in the area.Mike, Co. Donegal and Hertfordshire
We bought a pretty standard bungalow in 2001. At the time we paid no attention to important factors such as natural light sources , the flow of rooms or there intended usage, we simply wanted a house to sleep in! Some years later we started our family and quickly discovered like so many , that our main living space was not compatible for our needs, insofar that the house seemed to suffocate us. We were faced with a major decision to sell and build, or renovate. Decision made and an architect secured, we began the journey. We choose to go with an amazing architect from Allan Curran Architects. Throughout the project, John worked closely with us to ensure our needs were discussed, challenged and built into the plans. Expectations were clear with regards to budgets, lead times and next steps. The process was stress free and I can’t recommend John and his team enough. We moved out of the house at the end of June 2016 and we moved home in September 2016. I call it home now, because I can honestly say that I love my home. It has captured me and provokes positive energies in my family. Our kitchen is flooded in natural light, our once modest garden is now a focal point for us. We have spent and will continue to spend early mornings and late evenings appreciating the tranquility it gives us, our extended families and friends.Deirdre & Liam, Co. Leitrim
