Tracey Architects Derry

Tracey Architects was formed by Peter Tracey on 01 January 2005.  He was formerly  senior partner for 10 years at McCormick Tracey Mullarkey Architects  which he dissolved in December 2004. His  father Joe Tracey was founding partner of Liam McCormick and Partners in 1968 (subsequently re-titled McCormick Tracey Mullarkey in 1980).

The firm prides itself on being a friendly approachable professional practice where the Principal takes an active role in all projects. Although based in the North West, geographically the practice works throughout Ireland with recent projects including schools in Kildare, house extension in London as well as Meteorological offices, Dublin and churches in Artane, Julianstown and Laytown Co. Meath.

Peter Tracey’s scheme for Civic offices in Westport was one of 5 shortlisted in an International design competition organised by the Royal Institute of Architects of Ireland (RIAI) which attracted 97 entries worldwide. The scheme was specifically lauded for its “extra-dramatic interface with park”. The civic offices and library at Milford Co. Donegal included an urban study for the integration of urban space and new link road to integrate the new building into the existing tight knit townscape. The new civic offices for Derry City Council led the way in the regeneration of the riverside.

Numerous urban regeneration studies have been carried out by the firm for high profile clients such as Sainsbury’s, Derry City Council, U4D (University for Derry), Ebrington Barracks in Derry.

The Practice also won first and second place respectively in the RSUA organised design competitions for a new Arts Centre at Cookstown and a new church in Belfast.

We have an unrivalled record in the design of some of the most iconic churches erected in Ireland over the last 40 years and a number of these are included in the brochure.

The firm continues a general practice over a wide range of building types including housing (including one-off houses and extensions), nursery, primary and secondary schools, 3rd level educational, health buildings, hotels, offices, churches, arts centres, libraries, food factories.

The high quality of the work has resulted in a number of design awards down through the years.
