The House Architects

Our practice provides an architectural service focused on the design of homes for families in Dublin. We are acutely conscious of the central role that the house occupies as the stage for family life, through our professional practice and our own personal experience. Our team of expert residential architects are passionate about helping people to realise the full potential of their existing house or to help them crystallise their vision for their dream home.

The essence of a great family house is an architectural design and layout that meets the needs of all family members. In many cases our standard housing stock does not meet the needs of the modern family or reflect the family life-cycle through infant, junior, teenage and mature years. The solution we provide is a comprehensive architectural design appraisal of your existing house.
