Craftstudio architecture directors

The practice

Craftstudio Architecture are a young, vibrant and innovative design practice. We are driven by the desire to create high-quality contemporary architecture.

From our head office in Monaghan town, Craftstudio Architecture engages in a design process that evolves directly from our clients’ aspirations and requirements, and the unique context and specific constraints involved with each site. Our approach is based on understanding the complexities of each site and the relationship between the building, the landscape and its surroundings.

Our projects place a strong emphasis on how people interact with buildings and space. We believe in creating buildings that inspire their occupants, exposing their potential through material, light and relationship with context. Craftstudio Architecture use a wide range of techniques to investigate and communicate our ideas. This approach is critical to the engagement of our clients in the design process.
