Our projects span all building typologies, commercial, residential, pharmaceutical, education and retail. They cover all stages from master planning and concept design to interior design and certification with regulatory compliance.
We are additionally experienced in the design of high rise buildings, having completed the tallest building in Ireland, the Elysian Tower in Cork (70m), a twin-towers project in Dalian (148m) and a high-rise tower in JiNan (96m) which is under construction.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) – Wilson Architecture have been involved in 3-D modelling of complex buildings since 1995 and have subsequently progressed to the use of full BIM software packages. We recently received an industry award as part of the team which completed the first BIM to FM project in Ireland.

Sustainability – We have established a reputation for devising truly sustainable solutions across a broad spectrum of building typologies.

Adopting a holistic approach, we believe that the basis of sustainable design is an understanding of every component that will deliver a healthy and enduring building, a place in which people will feel comfortable.

We have in-house expertise in major building certification systems such as BREEAM and LEED, who input into all design stages of the project.
