Dublin studio opening

We are pleased to announce the opening of a new studio in Dublin, Ireland. The studio is our second international studio, with existing offices in Vancouver and Newcastle.

The new office will be led by Dublin-born partner Niall Durney, who joined the practice in 2018, alongside a growing team both recruited in Ireland and relocated from the Newcastle studio.

Located on Leeson Street, the studio will support existing and new projects, including our role as masterplan and lead architects of the Guinness Quarter, a sustainable new urban quarter at St James’ Gate in Dublin. The 12-acre site was home to the Guinness Brewery for over 261 years and represents one of the city’s most significant development and regeneration opportunities.

The new studio will also support FaulknerBrowns’ role in designing a mixed-use masterplan and new facilities for the Sport Ireland Campus in western Dublin, the home of Irish sport.

“We are really excited about the unique proposition FaulknerBrowns is bringing to Dublin and Ireland, combining the experience of a larger practice with a quality and design-led approach to architecture. This new studio will allow us to better collaborate with the local community as we craft a major new piece of Dublin city centre at the Guinness Quarter.”

“International work is an important part of our identity. Since the practice was founded in 1962, we have delivered architecture across the UK, Europe, Middle East and Canada. 60 years later, the Dublin studio is an exciting step in supporting existing clients in Ireland and developing new opportunities.”
