SIMPLY ARCHITECTURE is an award winning architecture practice based in Cork. Since being founded by Gareth Sullivan in 2009 the practice has developed a reputation for designing beautiful low energy buildings with an emphasis on well considered material choices and unique designs that respond to their site.
In 2017 the practice was highly commended at The RIAI Irish Architecture Awards in the House of The Year category for their Split House project.
In 2018 Simply Architecture were long listed and selected for exhibition in the same category for their Steep Wedge House project. This project has also been shortlisted in The Irish Construction Industry Awards & won the best single house award at The Irish Building & Architect of the Year Awards and the 2019 Isover Awards.
In 2019 Simply Architecture was named as the winner of The RIAI Future Award which recognises an emerging practice in Ireland. The practice is based in Cork City and is currently working on a broad range of exciting projects in Ireland and The UK.
Gareth & the builder Brian were brilliant to work with, excellent communicators and true gentlemen. Any issues that arose were seen as challenges rather than problems. Our home is a space to be at ease and its simplicity is perfect.
At our first meeting Gareth revealed his split-house design. It’s a testament to his architectural skills that this design survived all examinations and exists as our home today. Gareth’s steely powers of persuasion can make the impossible happen, but always mindful of our requirements, realism about the budget, and fairness to the builder.
