Additional Premium Content and Resources Coming Soon

Our website has grown over the last decade to encompass and enhance all aspects of our professional practice. The freely available content at the core of dkad.ie is written to advise people seeking information about design and construction, and to showcase our architectural portfolio: in technical terms its a conventional “brochure” and “content marketing” site. The website is the storefront or showroom of our business, public content is carefully crafted, controlled and edited. But like any business, there is a lot going on behind the scenes.

Our members-only areas are kept separate to simplify the user experience for homeowners seeking guidance in the renovation process.

Online services and standardized interactions have become a driving force wherever our practice interacts creatively with other: businesses, individuals, institutions or groups. In the same way, an office building might have a neat foyer with display images, formal meeting rooms, breakout spaces, a vault containing precious trade secrets, and a private realm of vibrant studio space.

Our members- only areas are intended to provide this variety of environments, virtually:

From a “safe space” for discussing new design ideas with other design professionals, to a system for administering tender processes, helping graduates find their niche in our profession, or giving highly detailed briefing notes to clients, this website is integral to the full range of activities in our practice.
