ethos .

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.

I am chuffed to have a poem in the February @HonestUlsterman today. One of the last poems I wrote pre pandemic, published on the day we step tentatively out of restrictions.

a model sits on a beautiful wooded site overlooking a popular beach. This family home will ease its way between the trees, touching the ground lightly, using natural and sympathetic materials, creating little disturbance in an idyllic setting for 2020s living. #donegalliving
