Established in 2008, Dermot Bannon Architects is an architectural firm based on the Seafront in Clontarf, overlooking Dublin Bay. Dermot Bannon Architects was founded by Dermot Bannon and Ian Hurley on the belief that good design responds to its surrounding environment and resonates with the soul of a site in order to enhance the daily lives of its inhabitants. Together they formed a strong team with a wide background of experience in education, health, commercial and domestic work. Their goal is to guide clients toward a full realization of their vision by helping them visualise and realise the greatest potential for their space. The aim is to integrate fun into function, to generate opportunities from site constraints, and to produce designs that are consistently bright and inspiring. The architects value the uniqueness of each client and their needs, and are eager to approach each project, and each challenge with fresh, inspired, case-specific insights.
