Throughout its 90 year history, the Architectural Practice of Henry J Lyons has provided a uniquely tailored professional service to its clients and to the wider community.
The pursuit of excellence in design and building performance, informed by a clear understanding of client needs and aspirations, coupled with an overall sense of responsibility to the environment, has led to an architecture which responds creatively to contemporary social, cultural, economic and environmental factors.
Central to the ethos of the Practice lies the belief that each project is an expression appropriate to its time, and its environment, and is ultimately a manifestation of the community in which it is located.
The work of the Practice is characterised by an architecture of response rather than imposition, underpinned by an ethic of responsibility, resulting in a creative and collaborative endeavour, which draws on the imaginative and innovative skills of its diverse membership. It is an honest expression of the people, the institutions and the community it serves.
The scope of its work is extensive, both in project type and scale, from the considered detailing of furniture and fit-outs to the broad concepts of civic buildings and urban design.
Through a structured communication process the implicit and explicit needs of the client are drawn out, developed and enhanced, and translated into inspirational designs which are then delivered with quality and confidence.
Technologies that embody environmental sustainability are employed to create durable buildings that can respond to changing physical, economic and environmental influences.
The Practice is committed to creating architecture which is informed by its context, is functional and practical, imaginative and innovative, resulting in unique and bespoke solutions to each problem it is asked to address.
