The team at AIR bring a wealth of award winning national and international experience, across a wide range of sectors including commercial, residential, education, leisure and masterplanning.
AIR was formed in 2010 by Colm Tamney who spent 10 years at Foster and Partners head office in London, where he was Associate Partner reponsible for several major projects.
A high quality of architecture is aimed for at all scales, examining options in detail with the client and working closely with the consultant team to create the best possible design and environment. Our experience has taught us many aspects of making a great building, from appraisal and concept stage, cost monitoring, collaboration with consultants, stakeholders and 3rd parties such as planning authorities, to working with contractors to bring the building to fruition.
Sustainability is always considered as part of the design process whether it be orientation, massing, termal heating and cooling, solar power, shading etc, and this also extends to material selection and detail.
AIR is a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Chartered Practice with professional RIBA and Architects Registration Board (ARB) membership.
