The heneghan peng architects (hparc) architecture firm founded by Róisín Heneghan and Shih-Fu Peng. The company was established in New York in 1999, but moved to Dublin in 2001 and is, as of 2021, based in Dublin and Berlin.

It has won many significant commissions, including the Grand Egyptian Museum,[1][2] Áras Chill Dara in Kildare, Ireland, the Giant's Causeway Visitors' Centre, and new footbridges at the London Olympic Park.[3][4] To win the Grand Egyptian Museum project, the firm won a design competition with 1,557 entries, despite having only three staff members at the time.

In 2009, the company won three competitions: for the Arabsat headquarters in Saudi Arabia,[5] the Mittelrheinbruecke competition to build a bridge over the Rhine between St. Goar and St. Goarshausen in Germany,[6] and the competition to design a new library and academic building for the University of Greenwich. The building sits within a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to both the Department of Architecture & Landscape and the Department of Creative Professions & Digital Arts in London.[7]
