About the Practice

Brennan Furlong Architects & Urban Planners is an award-winning RIAI registered practice based in Dublin. Founded by Gareth Brennan and Seamus Furlong, the practice centres on the principle that the well-considered & carefully developed design of buildings and spaces we use every day helps to enrich and enliven the experience and interaction with our built environment.
Our design approach centres on that philosophy and as such each project is viewed as a unique opportunity to incrementally improve our built environment as a whole, and our daily lives as individuals, families & communities.
Throughout their careers Gareth and Seamus have developed extensive experience in a broad range of projects varying from domestic extensions to commercial and public buildings. This diverse range of experience is brought to every aspect of each project which is a collaborative process with every client in developing the brief and maximising the potential of each site.

Brennan Furlong is accredited in conservation (Grade III), can act as Project Supervisors for the Design Process (PSDP) and holds full professional indemnity insurance.
