Darmody Architecture is an architectural practice with a passion for detail and a wide spectrum of experience, based in Dublin, Ireland. Specialising in architecture, urban planning and interiors, we have a portfolio that spans complex mixed use developments to exquisite private residences.

Our practice is built upon clearly defined principles: The need to understand with clarity our clients' briefs, the generation of a clear vision and strategy for each project irrespective of scale, a passion for design and detail, and a single-minded obsession with delivering buildings and spaces to the highest possible quality.

Darmody Architecture was founded in 2002 by Tim Darmody, an architect with over 25 years experience. Since then it has evolved to become one of Ireland's foremost architectural firms. Since its inception the practice has created some of the finest examples of contemporary architecture in Ireland. Currently the firm is busy, working both domestically and abroad with a number of prestigious projects under development in the UK.

Our Process

Step 1: The Client Vision

The core of any assignment is the client's brief and vision. It is our goal to ensure that this vision can be executed. We take time to fully understand the vision and before moving forward we validate our understanding with the client.

Step 2: Scale and Context

At this point we endeavour to identify key elements of the project. This includes site assessment and scale of the works.

Step 3: Reporting

Our initial assessment of the project is discussed with the client with a view to identifying all elements that are crucial to the project’s success. This acts as a point of validation before moving forward.

Step 4: Design and Planning

Initial design solutions are developed and discussed with the client. Initial discussions with planning also take place. Design solutions are prepared for assessment by relevant authorities.

Step 5: Team Building and Execution

Internal and external teams are set-up. Schedules, consultation process, drawings and reviews take place. Tendering is managed for contracting.

Step 6: On-Site

Monitoring and managing the on-site element continues until handover.
