Caulfield Wright Architects was established in Dublin in 2015 by architects and urban designers, Hilary Caulfield Wright and David Wright, with the amalgamation of their individual practices.

With a busy studio located in Clontarf in Dublin City, we are a strong multidisciplinary team of highly skilled and talented professionals in architecture, urban design, lighting, digital content and visual communication.

We believe that our intelligent design process, with a focus on quality materials and bespoke detailing results in unique and distinctive building projects.

We develop strong working relationships with our clients and enjoy working on a collaborative basis with both clients and design teams. We are committed to long term outcomes and enduring quality in the design and construction process; this contributes to the longevity of our relationships and of our reputation.

We are are currently running projects in the education, healthcare, technology and private sectors. Current projects include a new HQ for an indigenous IT company, office and clinic projects for a genetics research company and a significant new build residential project in conjunction with Jamie Fobert Architects.
