Who we are:

Established by Jason O'Shaughnessy in 1999, architecture53seven has developed a series of acclaimed projects In Ireland and overseas which display an understanding of the contemporary role of architecture in society. Their work has been published throughout the World and won plaudits from several International Architectural Commentators and Critics.

The practice was awarded a Special Commendation as part of the inaugural World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards in Barcelona, whilst were part of the 25 architects on a longlist for Building Design Young Architect of the Year 2008 - open to architects under 40 in the UK and Ireland. It has also received nomination for consideration in the prestigious European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture - the Mies van der Rohe Award in 2009.

What we aim to suggest in terms of urban planning is create a more intimate connection between those using these buildings/spaces and the architecture itself, thereby allowing for a greater potential for social interaction and the creation of urban forms and spaces that are vibrant and sustainable. We consider the application of such ambitions and processes are instrumental in providing our Clients with the range of complex tools required to develop their ambitious projects in the built environment.
