With over 50 years of experience, the architectural practice that is now Doherty Architects was established in North Belfast in the early 1960’s. Over these years, working from our own premises, we have developed expertise in the design and delivery of a wide range of building types.

During 2009, the company was rebranded as Doherty Architects under the direction of Lee and Michael Doherty who have been with the company for over 30 Years.

Lee and Michael have established a core team of individuals who all contribute a wealth of expertise. Using this knowledge base as a foundation we used our own offices as an exemplar project to promote our core principles of design quality, social responsibility and commercial viability. Three run down terraced houses, off the Antrim Road, provided the perfect opportunity to showcase how we unlock the potential within existing buildings and the existing site constraints.

We pride ourselves on utilising the latest technology to help us deliver each project. We transitioned to using BIM in 2007, years ahead of the government’s strategy. We are also one of the first firms within Northern Ireland to utilise VR as a core part of our design process. Supported by a team of associates Lee and Michael steer the design vision of the company and are integral to each project. Our team come together as a collective of knowledge and creativity, working within a fast paced and enjoyable environment. The sharing of ideas is heavily promoted within the office and we take pride in the collective contribution of our team approach to each design.
