Who we are

OBFA is a progressive architectural practice providing professional architectural and project management services throughout Ireland and the UK. A contemporary practice with an emphasis on design and sustainability, OBFA operates in a BIM (Building Information Modelling) environment for the efficient delivery of all projects.


OBFA Architects are sad to announce that after seven successful years one of it’s partners, Ruairi Finucane, is departing the company to pursue a new challenge.

Our business will continue to provide the same high-quality service on which we have built our reputation and this internal change will in no way effect our manner of conducting business.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Ruairi for his enthusiasm, professionalism and the integral role he has played in the development and success of OBFA Architects.  
We would like to wish Ruairi  the best of success for the future.


Founded in 2013, OBFA’s diverse body of work includes cultural, residential, commercial and educational buildings and spaces for both the private and public sectors, as well as civic projects.

Our team represents our commitment to the field of architecture, with wide ranging interests and extensive experience – from the procurement and management of large and complex projects,to research and study.

Each team member contributes to the wide range of projects and typologies, driving common architectural ambitions and a shared commitment to the collaborative aspect of creating architecture that is reflective of social, cultural, and physical context.


Our practice is honed on the ability to have a constructive dialogue with clients and end-users, as well as collaborating closely with other members of the project team throughout the design and delivery of a project.
