Irish Architects

Carr Cotter Naessens Architects are an architecture and design studio based in Cork since 2001. The work of this Irish architecture practice encompasses diverse briefs, scales and locations: from rural houses to urban masterplans, all are underpinned by a common design philosophy that is enquiring and rigorous.

Their approach is consistent regardless of the size of project: a clear design strategy based on understanding of the site and cultural, functional and technical performance required and rigorous implementation of this strategy through to the fine detail. Their compact close-knit team provides professional service from inception to completion. Sustainability underpins their work and we believe that passive energy solutions should be seamlessly and holistically integrated into design solutions.

Projects in Cork city include an integrated masterplan and conservation study of the historic South Presentation Convent in Douglas Street, Cork. Leading a multi-disciplinary team, they prepared a conservation plan and development proposals for this significant historic site. The first constructed phase of this project, the repair and restoration of the chapel building fabric was completed in 2011.

The architecture practice has proven expertise in mixed-use developments in urban locations. They have completed a number of projects that have contributed to the regeneration of Limerick city: Howleys Quay, Bishopsgate and the Grainstore, No 17 Henry Street, which received the RIAI Award 2007 for best commercial building.
