Paul Keogh Architects’ core value is our commitment to the highest standards of design quality and professional practice. We believe that good design adds value - to clients, end-users and the public - functionally, financially and environmentally.
Good design is not just about how things look: to be successful, buildings and places must be functional, durable, beautiful, and add to the character and quality of their locations.
Successful outcomes depend on a shared vision and pursuit of quality. PKA’s thirty-year record of excellent working relationships with clients and design team collaborators is founded on our belief in the importance of teamworking.
We value a creative and interactive relationship between client and design team; drawing on our established relationships with some of Ireland’s leading consultants in engineering, planning and cost control.
In consultation with our clients, we establish what are the fundamental brief, budget and site parameters; never imposing a routine response, we identify key issues, and explore a range of alternatives until we arrive at the optimum solution.
PKA is resolute in applying the environmental principles 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 quality of service we 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.
