Nicola Ryan and Gráinne Dunne set up Studio Red Architects in 2008 after working for Gilroy McMahon and DTA Architects respectively. Shane Coyle joined the firm in 2014.

We understand that Architecture is about relationships – primarily the relationship between the building and its users – and also the relationship between building and its surroundings – be that rural, suburban or urban.  As Architects we are instrumental in the success of those relationships.'
