This is just a flavour of the scale and diversity of International Architectural projects Niall has undertaken.

Niall’s diverse and wide range of design experience and completed projects include domestic extensions, one-off houses, mixed-use, retail, commercial, leisure, education and healthcare projects ranging from €100,000 to €40 million. It is the architectural diversity and challenges of these varying projects that keep his design grounded and his ideas and inventions fresh.
