Our ethos - "A great place to work, a place where great people work, a place where great projects are created with passion and fun."
TOT Architects is an architectural practice based in Dublin. We undertake projects worldwide through an international global network of affiliated colleagues and collaborations. Established in 1982 as a practice of Architects and Project Managers . The Directors, Patrick O’Toole, Chris Ryan, Pierce Byrne, Des Smyth and Donal Saunders share many years of design and practical experience in all aspects of the built environment.
We pride ourselves on providing a high level of professional expertise with a strong emphasis on design, technical and managerial skills. The company has maintained a reputation for high quality of design developed within cost efficient parameters. Strong emphasis is placed on the briefing / concept design stages of each project, where through regular dialogue, client’s needs and expectations are established. Within the practice we seek not only to meet our clients expectations but to exceed them.
TOT Architects believes the most successful outcomes are achieved through close collaboration between the various design disciplines and project team members. Over the past ten years TOT Architects has facilitated national and international collaborations among various disciplines and on a wide variety of commissions. We have collaborated with international architects Terry Farrell, Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, Gensler, HKS and Michel Mossessian, among others. Regular collaboration establishes a symbiotic working relationship and delivers coherent and timely responses for the client through the various project stages. We have renewed collaborations on many new projects based on the success of previous ones.
As Architects and Design Team Coordinators, TOT seeks a marriage between functional requirements and sound environmental criteria. We acknowledge that, in addition to creating more healthy environments for communities and individuals, good sustainable design is a prerequisite for the commercial success of our buildings.
