about us: Our practice and TEAM

Diarmuid Reil Architects treats every brief individually and strives to provide bespoke design solutions for every project.

Our
practice
ethos

We believe that good design, architecture and urban design makes a huge difference to all our lives. But it shouldn’t cost the earth, it pays for itself. We treat each brief individually and create bespoke design solutions for every project. Our approach is founded on working with our client to develop a detailed design brief. Through this process, we understand our client’s needs and aspirations.

Our work is based on a contextual approach to architecture and urban design. Informed by; urban, social, economic and environmental context. With sustainability a core principle of our design process — not an add-on service.

Truly understanding the projects’ context allows us to deliver a successful creative response to the client’s requirements. We are driven to exceed our client’s expectations.

Clarity of the design process is key. Clear project management and cost control ensures the delivery of projects within the agreed time and budget constraints. We ensure ongoing dialogue and partnership between all project stakeholders; clients, design team and construction team. Our approach has resulted in the successful completion of many projects.
We have been recognised in architectural journals and design awards. Ultimately, it’s client satisfaction that propels us forward.
