Careful listening. Smart thinking. Sensible design.

Analytic, astute, augmented. Your project deserves an architectural method that’s all these things and more.


White Ink Architects takes a clinical approach that goes way beyond design, applying a level of pragmatism that ensures no detail is left overlooked. This allows us to closely collaborate with our clients whatever the project, while offering a level of value no other practice can.


We call it Forensic Architecture. And it means every detail of our work is as efficient and effective as it is possible to be.


Working across multiple sectors

On the drawing board...

"We like working with White Ink because they combine design flair with technical knowledge and they bring the much needed element of ‘common sense’ to the design and build process…  They are always pro-active and prompt in dealing with the day to day issues that occur on a project."

Mike Fitzgerald, Mercer & Miller

"White Ink Architects embraced the ethos of the Sisters of Nazareth and placed the needs of our residents at the centre of their work, resulting in an imaginative, welcoming, modern building which has proved flexible and adaptable in use."

John O’Mahoney, Nazareth Care

"White Ink Architects were always happy to engage in matters of minor detail, and that underpinned the success of this development.  They work in a collaborative and responsive way showing consideration and understanding of our functional needs, and our financial and time constraints." 

Peter Tisdale, THAT Group

“WIA provided a unique and strong visual solution to this project working closely with our teams to ensure functionality was not compromised.  WIA stood by their concept throughout design development and were able to demonstrate value when aspects of the design were challenged…such conviction has paid off… Project deliverables have met programme and quality targets”

C.Bradberry, Infrastructure Executive, Translink

“White Ink Architects design has carefully integrated our new sunroom with the existing building.  The use of rubble stone obtained from the site has enhanced the scheme to a level where the sunroom now looks to be part of the original scheme.  The sunroom has added a new internal dimension to our living area and is now the focal point of our house”

Private Client

"In a multi-storey space bathed in Irish light, a Celtic Dragon abstracted in steel invites children to climb the spans of its arched wings. One of the biggest climbers ever built, the structure dances through the space with apparent disregard for the rectilinear architecture it occupies. It is however, ingeniously configured to intersect with existing beams and columns where suitable: a celebration of the symbiosis of building and sculpture."

Spencer Luckey, Artist

“…the refurbishment of the Whitehall Building is a feather in the cap for Sandy Row… despite the murderous ghosts of tobacco smoke which may haunt the building, its refurbishment breathes new life into the area.” 

Mr. David Evans, Perspective Magazine
