Merrigan Phelan McNamara Architects Established in 2014 and based in Waterford City, offer a wide range of services to public and private clients. The office has a strong design focus and we aim to deliver contemporary architectural solutions in response to a variety of external influences to maximise the potential of each project. Each individual project is a collaborative effort, arising from a clear understanding of both Client and Brief requirements and our considered approach to design. As designers, our initial starting point on any project, irrespective of scale, is a strong core concept, and we develop the project on the basis that the central concept is never compromised. We have been fortunate to build some excellent collaborative relationships which have allowed us to grow our practice in recent times and in addition to projects all over Ireland we have worked with clients based in London, Paris, Los Angeles, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
