O'Donnell + Tuomey is an architectural practice based in Dublin, Ireland, described by Architecture Today as one of "the godfathers of contemporary Irish architecture".[1]

The practice was established in 1981 by Sheila O'Donnell and John Tuomey,[2] who had both previously worked for Stirling Wilford in London.[3] The pair formed part of Group 91 Architects,[3] the masterplanners for the regeneration of Dublin's Temple Bar district in the early 1990s

Notable projects[edit]

The practice became widely known when their Irish Film Centre and Gallery of Photography won the Downes Medal, in 1992 and 1996 respectively.[2] They have since designed a number of notable buildings, including the Glucksman Gallery at University College Cork,[3] the Irish installation at the Venice Biennale 2004, and the Ranelagh Multidenominational School, which won the RIAI Triennial Gold Medal in 2006.
