CONTACT US
Eco Architects Ireland have many years experiece in all aspects of design, in many catagories, ranging from one off residential dwellings, multiple housing developments, apatrtments, commercial and industrial,  and refurbishment works.
Our projects aim to demonstrate that living and working in harmony with the micro-cosm of a individual site can develop an understanding about minimising our day-to-day impact on it and on the macro-cosm of our world as a whole.
Our Projects - Past & Present
Eco Architects Ireland  projects aim to integrate health, education and working with the natural environment. Our buildings will generally generate their own clean energy from on site  renewable resources, harvest their own water and recycle waste materials causing no pollution or CO2 emissions.
Our buildings will be designed to passive solar guidelines following the Association for Environment Conscious Buildings, AECB, Silver, Gold or Platinum standards comparable with the acclaimed zero heat German Passiv Haus projects.
eco design
We will endeavor to avoid the use of materials from non sustainable sources or which harm the environment or people in their production, extraction, use or disposal. Prioritise use of fair trade FSC  certified timber products. 
We will create a  building of quality and beauty, which embody a positive connection with the site, using local resources, people and products.
                                The use of natural and 'local' building materials will maximise connection with the site and reduce transportation, whilst maintaining the sites established eco systems. 

Summary
Our projects, when implemented set themselves apart from other projects by being at the leading edge of the integration of innovative partnership working arrangements, sustainable design, and environmental education.

One off residential dwellings.
Some examples of our projects are as follows :
Individual rural designs to amalgamate with the local vernacular traditional designs.
Dwellings are designed to an Building Energy Rate of  "A",  to be as energy efficient as possible, whatever the clients budget.
During site works phase we aim to minimise disruption to site flora and fauna both during construction and subsequent use.
We will Increase the bio diversity. New trees and plants will be planted and more planned for the future.
The landscape will be managed to promote a wide range of native species of flora and fauna as part of the on going management plan for the site.
Extensions & Refurbishment works
Extensions to existing dwellings are designed to compliment and enhance the main structure - without comprimising on our aim in a holistic natural approach in construction methods & materials.
Multiple  residential developments.
Our firm has extensive experience in multiple development design,either in apartments or housing,  and work in close conjunction with the developers / contractors to ensure that our ideals in reducing CO2 emissions are met, and that our holistic aims & ideals and energy efficiency pursuit is not put on the back burner in pursuit with unit profits
Commercial & Industrial developments.
Large commercial & industrial developments are traditionally low efficiency and tend to be wasteful in regard to their resources, depending on their individual business, but our designs follow a rigorous design criteria to ensure compliance and to meet all targets in heat loss / energy  efficiency, and incorporate all the renewable technology that will help make these buildings as self sufficient as possible. Where possible we advise to recycle and reuse existing buildings or products rather than extracting new raw virgin materials and manufacturing new products from virgin materials.
Community & Healthcare developments.
We are currently been commisioned to design local community centers and work in close liaison with many community groups and local authorities to provide designs that will be the social focal point for the community, which wishes to avail of its services, we instill a sense of ecological mindset within the relevant groups which have all embraced the options proposed to reduce the buildings CO2 footprint during construction and thereafter.
                      We have also designed nursing homes which incorporating our holistic approach enhances the quality of life for the residents whom appreciate the concepts used to provide their comfort levels and enjoyment of the structure.

Concept A1 Passive House Design. - forthcoming project
Eco Architects Ireland  have been commissioned to design and project manage a new dwelling which is shown below which will generally generate its own clean energy from on site  renewable resources, harvest their own water and recycle waste materials causing no pollution or CO2 emissions.
This home has been designed to passive solar guidelines following the Association for Environment Conscious Buildings, AECB,  Platinum standards comparable with the acclaimed zero heat German Passiv Haus projects.
