About Us

Established in 1998, KENNETH HENNESSY ARCHITECTS Ltd is an award-winning and design-driven, RIAI registered practice based in Clonmel, Co. Tipperary. We are dedicated to an inclusive design process and the production of high quality, distinctive and appropriate buildings. The practice principal, Kenneth Hennessy B. Arch, B.Sc.CM. FRIAI, CPHD, represents a wide spectrum of talent and experience covering the fields of architecture, construction management and energy-efficient design.

As a team we collectively utilise our enthusiasm, creativity, knowledge, professional discipline and management skills to produce architecture of distinction and value.

We are accredited as Conservation Architects Grade III and as PSDP by the RIAI and are certified Passive House Designers. We are experienced in the design and delivery of Public, private and voluntary sector projects including award-winning social housing, libraries, school buildings, private residences and conservation works and we provide a full range of architectural design services.




We take your hopes and aspirations as the starting point for every project. We understand that our projects are your projects and that they will not exist without our shared vision. Our role as architects is to firstly understand what it is you want, before we embark on the design process with you. We appreciate that these are and always will be, your projects; we are simply here to guide you through the process and help you to achieve your ambitions.


We offer a diverse and wide ranging design process and we use a variety of media to illustrate and communicate our ideas to you. These include sketches, drawings, 3D computer graphics, photography and physical models. These form a key part of our communication process and ensure that our design proposals are easily understood as your design develops.


We have a strong technical foundation in the delivery of construction projects, encompassing architecture, construction management and energy-efficiency. We strive to deliver quality during construction and we provide a level of personal and professional commitment to ensure that this key goal is achieved.
