The House Architects is an architecture firm located in Dublin created by architects Josh Maguire and Vivienne Doyle-Maguire. The firm specialises in residential design and planning, creating innovative, user-friendly solutions to meet the needs of families in Dublin. 

Passionate about helping people realise their vision for the home of their dreams, the architects are experts in designing new houses as well as home renovations and extensions, offering comprehensive architectural design appraisal for your existing house, adapting it to fit your family’s lifestyle and adding value to your property, all while respecting your budget. 

Architect Josh Maguire (Dip Arch B Sc Arch MRIAI) graduated from the Dublin Institute of Technology in 1992, has been a member of the Royal Institute of Architects in Ireland since 1994. He has worked with respected firms in London and Dublin, served on the RIAI Housing subcommittee, studied Urban Design and designed and managed diverse projects for both public and private clients. The architect has developed his specialty and skills in the residential sector, designing individual houses as well as large-scale developments. 

Vivienne Doyle-Maguire (Dip Arch B Sc Arch ARIAI2) received her degree from the Dublin Institute of Technology in 1994. She then collaborated with various well-renowned architectural firms, developing specialised skills in residential and urban design and taking a leadership role in major residential developments.

The duo founded The House Architects with the goal of combining their expert experience as architects with their insight into the priorities and lifestyles of modern Irish families, in order to provide architectural solutions that meet the needs of real families today. Whether for renovations to fulfill the potential of your existing house, or realising your vision to build a new home, the architects’ approach to home design and layout takes into account the needs of each family member and how these needs may change as children grow up and family life evolves.

The architects at The House Architects are committed to respecting your budget through each step of the project, and creatively find high-impact solutions for even the most modest budgets. The firm provides full project management services from conception to completion, including feasibility studies, site evaluation and appraisal, handling the tender process, drafting contracts, and assuring construction quality. The RIAI-accredited firm can also advise you on requirements for planning permissions, exempted developments and building regulations.

With a client-focused approach, Josh Maguire and Vivienne Doyle-Maguire offer personalised and cost-effective design solutions, with attention to light, functionality, orientation and quality materials.
