Arigho Larmour Wheeler Architects

 

ABOUT US

From our studios beside Trinity College in Dublin and on the Lisburn Road in South Belfast we take pride in designing and delivering well-crafted buildings with a strong connection to their context. Fundamental to our practice is the belief that good architecture and design can enrich people’s lives.

Established by Mark Arigho, Jane Larmour and Patrick Wheeler, Arigho Larmour Wheeler Architects have a portfolio of high-quality buildings across Ireland at a range of scales including new one-off private houses, sensitive renovations of protected buildings, and innovative extensions to family homes alongside projects for commercial clients. 

We enjoy the challenge of finding appropriate responses to each project we take on, working to complement existing conditions, paying close attention to budget, sustainability and the precise project context.

HOW WE WORK

Along with our staff, all three directors are involved in conversation both in the studio and with our clients, through each stage of project from inception to completion. We work through traditional hand sketches, drawings, physical and digital models as appropriate to investigate and visualise projects for review both within the studio and as the basis of client discussions.

OUR SERVICES

If you have a project you would like to discuss with us please get in touch.

We can provide full architectural services (RIAI and RIBA) for both new buildings and works to existing buildings in Ireland and the UK. We have specialist accreditation for working with conservation and heritage projects involving Protected Structures.

While every project is unique owing to the precise context of site, aspirations, brief, programme and budget, each design process typically invoices the same sequence of stages from inception to completion including...
