Our Practice

Plan 8 is an architectural design firm based in Delgany, Co. Wicklow. Established in 2015, this practice led by a small team of professionals has a wealth of experience. Taking a design-led approach to each individual project and creating a clear, decisive, and collaborative working relationship with our clients, results in a developed design which is specific to the brief and sensitive to its context and environment.
We aim to design unique and distinctive homes which meet the immediate needs of the clients, while considering the buildings lifespan in terms of longevity and adaptability.
