We believe in generating spaces where people meet, interact, shop and feel at home.
Our primary work is on public and commercial projects, whilst maintaining a consistent stream of residential work. Our aim is to enhance the experience of the places we design and build.
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work in towns and our renowned natural surroundings. At the heart of our approach, we bring together design and context, site and plan, form and use.

Design. Detail. Distinguish.

In every feasibility study, competition, or a project commission, we see an opportunity to collaborate by building the future.
REQA embraces the privilege of being a leader in design; acting as the central coordinator among all project participants. 
We encourage the feeling of pride that comes with the possibility to positively contribute to the quality of life to a person, group of people, countryside, or city.

Distinctive in harmony.

Concepts have to speak the same language of the surrounding context but remain distinctive. 
REQA focus on the detailing, material choices, potential connections between interior and exterior, all joined by smart spatial design. 
Robust, resilient, and secure are the values we instill in our work.

Knowledge makes the complex simple.

Thirty+ years of experience fosters a broad spectrum of insight and skill which form the basis for any assignment. We propose designs that add quality. From a modular community building in Belfast to the extension of a historic church in Larne, or retail fit-out in Dublin.
Experience is the backbone of our design.

Future thought buildings.

REQA sees the future impact of our work as essential. Energy sources, consumption, and building maintenance are all key elements we weave into design solutions. We believe in flexibility in our solutions to protect the future.
Designed today, with an eye on the future.

Results worthy of investment.
