We are an award winning design led practice who are passionate about delivering excellence for our clients...

In the beginning...

Our practice was established in 1999 by Lora Aughey & Max O’Flaherty.

Since the start, we have been blessed with great clients. We work closely with them to understand their needs and create buildings to fit those needs. By 2003, the practice had won the first of many awards and in 2005, we won the prestigious RIAI award, best building in the landscape.

Establish your needs

We agree your priorities for the  project, firstly with the practical, eg. spaces, sizes, heights, levels,  functions, connections and so on.



Develop your brief

Then we explore how you believe it  should feel, eg. light, bright, cosy, formal, casual, tall, snug, warm, minimal,  simple, ornate and so on.


Study your site

We study your building and site as  they give further clues, eg. aspect, orientation, slope, level, vegetation,  neighbours, wind direction, can all inform the  design.
