About Edge Architecture

Edge Architecture Practice Profile

Edge Architecture was formed in 2009 and is a niche practice that offers a personal service to all its clients. The owner / operators deal directly with all its clients from project inception right through to completion. Our design work focuses on creating buildings which are sustainable and enhance the landscape within which they lie.

We believe that the best buildings emerge through the successful collaboration with our clients and consultant professionals. During this process our team continually evaluate, and stress test the design, budget and management of our client’s projects.

The practice is immersed in all aspects of the built environment, but specialises in domestic and commercial planning, sustainable design, and Building contract administration. We carry RIAI recommended Professional Indemnity Insurance.

We are very interested in engaging with all manner of clients from home extensions to new homes, right up to all levels of commercial work.

For all prospective domestic scale clients our initial project feasibility meeting with you is free of charge. For commercial clients the same service applies, and in some cases depending on the scale and complexity of the project, feasibility sketch work can be incorporated into a second feasibility meeting, in order to aid your decisions.
