Niamh Butler Architects





Niamh Butler Architects was established in 1994, following Niamh’s return from France where she had worked for the previous 5 years.
In the first years our work was mainly small scale domestic projects but this has changed over time. Now our work ranges from high end one-off houses, educational & commerical buildings to small domestic extensions.
Based in Skerries, Co. Dublin, we are a design-led practice that strive for excellence at all stages of the design process from inception to completion.


Niamh Butler studied at the School of Architecture at University College Dublin. After graduating in 1988 she worked in New York and Paris, returning to Ireland in 1994 to set up her own practice.
