As a team Ceardean Architects have earned over 10 years of the best type of experience in the education sector. And Individually, we have many, many more.

We mean Contemporary School Experience. We mean a very current view of buildings for learning and where we are heading with education well into the future.

Our understanding of how we learn has changed. It is continually changing, and the importance of creating Educational Buildings and Spaces that enhance children's learning ability based on proven science and informed design is Ceardean's objective.

70% Of our team currently have children in the Irish Educational framework, so for most of us, this is also a personal mission.

We joined this particular world of design when inclusivity is more important than ever, and creating the best possible spaces for those with learning difficulties, or who just learn in a different way, is at the top of the agenda for many. And rightly so.

Easy comfortable access for all, learning areas flooded with natural light, spacious classrooms and calm rooms, and recreational zones that inspire, motivate and relax pupils are the simpler design considerations.

And our Designs, our work, go further.
