DUBLIN—As part of a plan to meet Irish clients where they are—and to provide local project oversight backed by global design resources—architecture and design firm Perkins and Will announced today its expansion into the capital city of Ireland.
The new Dublin practice will be co-led by Justin Treacy, who recently joined the firm as principal, and Lydia Collis, an associate principal and recent MBA graduate of the University College Dublin’s Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School.
The firm’s expansion into Ireland’s capital reflects its commitment to Dublin and the surrounding region.
“I’m excited to contribute my strategic and creative design skills, along with my team-building experience, to the Perkins and Will family,” says Treacy, who brings decades of local knowledge and experience in the Dublin commercial interiors market to clients and project teams. “Together, we can offer so much more to our clients all across Ireland.”
“Our firm is known for blending local expertise with a global perspective,” says Collis, who’s designed projects for higher education, institutional, corporate, and commercial clients across Ireland and the U.K. “After eight years in our London studio, I’m thrilled to come home and continue that approach in the Irish market.”
Under Treacy’s and Collis’ joint leadership, Perkins and Will will open a brick-and-mortar design studio in the heart of Dublin in the next several weeks, and begin to expand the practice’s staff to support a growing number of clients, projects, and opportunities.
