Isabel's photoHi, my name is Isabel Barros and I am Senior Architect with over 20 years of experience.

I am originally from Portugal and I moved to Ireland in 2002. I am a graduate of Lusíada University, Lisbon and a member of both the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) and the Portuguese Association of Architects.

I have an extensive experience in residential, commercial and leisure projects and also in master planning. I am also familiar with all stages of the construction process including concept design, planning, interiors, detail design, tendering, construction supervision and office management. I am also a fully independent BER assessor for new and existing dwellings.

I am passionate about Architecture and Design and my goal is to create high quality contemporary Architecture. I aim to make good design available to the general public while maintaining a strong focus on the energy efficiency and sustainability of my designs.

I strongly believe that my artistic imagination and creative vision together with my expertise and technical knowledge will contribute to create spaces that are more functional, comfortable, efficient, environmentally responsible and aesthetically distinctive.


This blog was created to discuss a number of issues that are part of my daily activity. I also plan to feature here the latest news and events to allow you to be inspired and interact with the contemporary Architecture.

The blog focuses on all areas of Architecture, Design, Creativity and Sustainability.
