Philosophy

Paul Keogh Architects' core value is our commitment to the highest standards of design quality and professional practice: good design adds value - functional, economic, environmental and aesthetic - to clients, end-users and the public.

Successful outcomes depend on a shared vision: PKA's thirty-year record of excellent working relationships with clients and design team collaborators is based on our belief in the value of teamwork, especially bringing those who use our buildings into the process of their design.

Good design is not just about how things look: to be successful, buildings and places must be functional, durable and beautiful, as well as adding to the character and quality of their locations.

At PKA, we are pro-active in scrutinising clients' brief, site and budget objectives, and exploring the widest range of options until we arrive at the ideal solution.

PKA is resolute in applying the principles of environmental sustainability to every aspect of our work - design, construction, research and training - to combat climate change and to improve the quality of people's lives, both now and in the future.

Listed on the RIAI register of practices since 1990, the quality management system operated by PKA demonstrates our commitment to the highest standards in the services we provide to our clients in the public and private sectors.

"Beautifully crafted and sensitively executed, this project takes the spaces of the existing buildings, revitalises them and secures their future as living, breathing elements of the city. It offers a vision of what can be done with our underused and undevalued stock of historic urban buildings." Jury citation, 51 A,B & C Dawson Street, 2020 RIAI Awards.
