Ciaran has worked at a number of London practices, having taken two years out at Part 1 to gain a well-rounded practice experience before continuing his studies. His first year was spent at UberRaum Architects and his second at Curl la Tourelle Head Architecture, working on a number of projects at varying scales, sectors and RIBA stages. Following his Part II studies, he worked at Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, working on a large office restoration project, comprising extension works and internal office fit-out alongside reinstatement of original neo-classical features both inside and out.
His master’s degree developed this love of detailing further, with his thesis project mimicking the craft of traditional Japanese joinery techniques and adapting them into his own unorthodox, ad-hoc building approach. He has also worked on projects as a freelance architectural designer including an outbuilding for a private residence in Hertfordshire. This involved full authorship over the drawing packages and taking an active role in the project’s development.
Outside of work he can usually be found by the coast in Devon or in a pub with friends in North London. Ciaran comes from an Irish family with a strong musical heritage, continuing this tradition by playing the fiddle as part of a performance group from Ireland, having toured throughout Europe, Asia and America.
