Workplace Design

DMOD have been involved in “workplace design” since the inception of the practice over 30 years ago. In the past 10 years the practice have consistently delivered quality site specific solutions, creating people centred environments which have contributed greatly to the context within which they are located. Our objective is to provide a particular design response for each opportunity presented, and to deliver flexible and interesting places of work, which encourage creativity and enhance well being.



DMOD provide Masterplanning services which assist the client to make timely decisions, informing site selection issues and generating a controlled development plan to allow incremental development.
The process, depending on the intended use or uses and context, delivers key information to the client and their project team in a cohesive and comprehensive way in order to manage risk and provide cost and programme certainty. Urban design is concerned with context and the creation of public amenity space, defined through the built environment. The quality of the "public realm" spaces generated is a key factor in producing environments which nurture social interaction and a sense of place.


Retail and Entertainment

DMOD have a significant presence in this sector, assisting our clients to design and deliver retail environments. Our long standing relationship with a number of key clients in this sector has provided us with a great understanding of partnership with large retailers and multi outlet operators, providing destination shopping experiences. Our involvement in the reinvention and redevelopment of Stillorgan Shopping Centre and Park Shopping Centre in Broadstone and working closely with the Primark Group in their ambitious store roll-out across Germany and Holland are an illustration of our ongoing commitment.


In relation to community architecture and housing DMOD continue to provide architectural services to Local Authorities and private developers in delivering housing accommodation where key considerations include generating a sense of place for the community, robust detailing and an attitude to design which enriches the lives of those who occupy these dwellings.


Interior Architecture

DMOD offers a full interior architecture service. This includes design, furniture selection and design, specifications, project management and site inspection. “Fitout” has been part of what DMOD do since the inception of the practice. Our strength in this regard, is our ability to listen, understand and implement the brief requirements of the client or end user. Projects large or small, some complex and exploratory, others prescriptive and focussed, have been part of the success of the practice, assisting multi-outlet clients in many urban locations to one-off design specific fit-out projects.

Pharma & Industrial

DMOD work with a number of pharmaceutical / technology companies, assisting them with high level strategic planning. In addition we have delivered new production and office facilities on green field sites, but also complex “live site” projects comprising GMA, production spaces, ancillary areas and distribution warehousing.
