we can't stop creating

 

Ceardean Architects Have Been A Semi-Mobile Office For Some Years Now. Fortunately, We Moved Our Work Processes Online Well Before This Event. 

So, As All Of Our Team Already Worked From Home Regularly, This Change Was Like Water Off a Duck's Back. Basically We're Able To Work From Anywhere At Any Time.

The Only Downfall Was There Was No Break For Our Team.

 

All necessary safety measures are in place and we continue to provide excellent (and always different) Design Ideas, Solid Construction Methods, Productive Building Contract Solutions, seamlessly. And our enjuring attitude of always going 'that bit furter' seems to be really helping folks out these days. We all need it.

Maybe we can work together on  something amazing soon.

Peace,

Ceardean Team

Who We Are & What We Do

In Short, We Are Architects.

We Just Love To Design, Plan, Build And See-through Our Special Projects To The End. But For You, This Is The Beginning.

We Collaborate Closely With Clients & Each Other, And Draw Upon Our Bizarrely Diverse Mix Of Expertise. We (Nearly) Have It All Here; RIAI Registered Architects, The Designer, The Planner (Yawn), The Tech Guy, The 3D Ace, The Energy Guy, And So On. Actually We Have Over 100 Years Experience Between Us, And Still Learning Every Minute.

Individually Nearly All Of Us Have Been Through A Personal Construction Project Ourselves. This Is Unusual For A Dublin Practice. So Have Learned Exactly What It Feels Like To Be On That Side Of The Fence. We Have Felt The Pain.

Our Speciality Is Most Definitely CREATIVE Design, And Bringing Individuals And Business's Unique Identity Into The Built Environment. Just Look At Some Of What We Have Done! We Are So Proud Of It, But Have So Much More To Do In This World. It Might Be For You, And It Might Not. That's Fine. But Either Way Hang Around A While And Browse Some Of Our Projects.

It's Fun.

Ceardean have helped and been with my business every step of the way. Without them we wouldn't be where we are today. If you want attention to detail, out of the box designs and friendly service they are the crowd to go with. Couldn't recommend them more.

We approached Derek at Ceardean as we often passed his office with his sign outside and liked his style from the website. We initially contracted for a few design ideas and quickly realised he understood well what we wanted and went with him for the whole project. Ceardean were fantastic from start to end. When our planning was declined initially they helped us through the appeal process with an Bord pleanala and after delivering very clear documents the planning was approved. Throughout the project the project management was great at keeping the project on track and on budget. We would definitely recommend

Worked with Ceardean on the design of One Society. No project is without challenges but have to say we worked closely with Ceardean to ensure our vision was reached. They have a solid team behind them.

We chose Ceardean to design and look after the renovations on our new home. It was the best decision we made. Derek came up with a fabulous design which was exactly what we were looking for. He and his team helped us through the whole process from design, planning permission, tenders and project managed the build for us. The result was the perfect home for us. I would highly recommend Ceardean after our experience.
