Our approach to the design of buildings is to respond appropriately to the client’s brief and to find the best solution without bringing any preconceptions to the design process. Sheehan & Barry Architects have planned and managed a wide variety of projects from extensions and refurbishments of older properties to modern new build projects. At all times we approach every project as a unique brief and develop a detailed response in order to bring projects from feasibility studies, scheme design and planning through to construction and handover.[read more]
