About Us

We are a practice of creative, professional architects, designing high-quality, distinctive, and appropriate buildings. We listen carefully to our clients to best understand their needs, and we create innovative solutions in delivering a project that matches and in many cases exceeds their ambitions.

Kenneth Hennessy Architects Ltd is skilled and 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.  Since the establishment of the practice in 1998, our portfolio demonstrates our proven track record in delivering design and construction solutions for a wide range of projects, from new dwellings, extensions, and refurbishments, through to larger public projects and master-planning.

Our collaborative and inclusive design approach means that we firstly listen to our clients, in order to clearly understand your needs, and work together with you to develop a design solution that sparks your imagination, meets your requirements, and helps to realise your vision


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.
