heneghan peng architects (hparc) is an architecture firm based in Dublin and Berlin. The company was established in New York in 1999 but was shifted to Dublin in 2001. Its founders are Róisín Heneghan and Shih-Fu Peng.

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.

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]
