Dear Clients, Colleagues & Friends!


To celebrate 70 years in business, I would like to ‘unveil’ our new look!  The tagline we have adopted as part of our branding is Detail Orientated Collaborative Design – we believe that this captures the essence of our ethos as a design led Architectural practice.

As a practice, we are focused on detail at all levels of the design process from the earliest stages of a project on the drawing board through all project stages to construction and handover.  We couple this attention to detail with strong working relationships with all involved in the delivery of buildings from Client to Consultants to Contractors as well at third party stakeholders in Local Authorities, utility companies and financial institutions.  It is through partnership and collaboration that we deliver the best buildings.

This year marks 70 years since my grandfather Charles Quinn established his practice at 86 O’Connell Street in 1952.  My father John Quinn successfully led the practice into the new millennium.  Now, three generations later, our practice continues to go from strength to strength and it is an honour to follow in their footsteps.

I would like to thank all our Clients who have placed their trust in us to deliver for them and who have given us the opportunity to demonstrate our expertise and showcase our talents.  We look forward to working with you long into the future!

I would also like to thank the Consultants with whom we partner for their professionalism and support – delivering high quality, sustainable buildings is a ‘team sport’.

And I would like to thank the Contractors and Sub-Contractors who translate our paper drawings and cardboard models into built reality – we value your commitment to realising our designs.

Central to our success is our team of dedicated professionals who continue the tradition of considered design, strong technical knowledge and friendly service.  I would like to pay a special tribute to their expertise and dedication over many years.  And together our team is ready, willing and able to respond to your building needs over the many decades to come.

Many thanks to you all and we look forward to continuing our tradition of Detail Orientated Collaborative Design!


Cathal Quinn, Managing Director, and all at Quinn Architects
