Wednesday 11th September 2019 - Niall Mclaughlin Architects in Practice

Niall McLaughlin established his practice in London in 1990 and was awarded 'Young British Architect of the Year' in 1998. Since then, the practice has gone on to complete a number of high quality modern buildings with a special emphasis on inventive use of materials, the qualities of light and the relationship between the building and its surroundings. Their designs have won many awards in the UK, Ireland and the US and have been shortlisted for the Stirling Prize on three occasions. http://www.niallmclaughlin.com/
