Michael Magill

Michael believes that architecture centres around the engagements and interactions users have with the physical environment. As a designer, he is focus on developing a brand, creating an identity and building a concept specific to the region and the community. He sees joy in the endless possibilities of how good designs can evoke people’s emotions while addressing their social needs, and ultimately nurture growth. Through the integration of innovative design and latest technology, he aims to define spatial footprints that become legacies that last for generations.

These include the Institute of British Architect Regional (RIBA) Award for Downe Hospital in Northern Ireland and shortlist in the World Architecture Festival for Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi.
