David Jordan Architects was formed in 2011. We are a versatile, client-focused practice led by David Jordan and utilising some of the best talents of individuals he has worked and collaborated with during his previous years as a partner in Campbell Conroy Hickey Partnership Architects. Our practice has particular expertise in Healthcare and Education as well as extensive experience in Residential, Commercial and Leisure design and in Renovation and Conservation Work.


David Jordan has over 30 years professional experience as an architect in practice and over this period has worked principally in the areas of healthcare, educational, leisure, commercial and residential design. David has developed particular expertise in the fields of healthcare & education.

In the area of healthcare, the experience started over 30 years ago with his work on Blackrock Clinic (PLAN-Building of the Year-1984) and more recently as architect for two of the major new hospitals built in Ireland within the last decade, award-winning Galway Clinic and Hermitage Medical Clinic and as architect for one of the largest & most complex extensions carried out to an Irish hospital, the 4-Storey Hospital Extension at Blackrock Clinic, completed in 2011.

David’s experience in design of educational buildings also covers a period of over three decades, from his involvement in the design of new post-primary schools for the Co. Dublin VEC in the 1980’s through to his work on refurbishment & new buildings in established schools in 1990’s-2000’s, including St. Patrick’s School, Dalkey, Clongowes Wood College, Castleknock College and St.Columba’s College.

David was educated at Gonzaga College before studying architecture at University College Dublin. He graduated in 1981 and joined Campbell Conroy Hickey Architects, where in his early years in the practice he gained experience working on healthcare & educational projects. In 1985, David joined Brian O’Halloran & Associates, Architects where he worked principally on residential & commercial projects. In 1987, David rejoined Campbell Conroy Hickey and shortly afterwards became an associate of the practice. In the late 80’s & early 90’s, David worked on a range of residential, healthcare, commercial & leisure projects in Ireland & the U.K. including Ericsson Software Design Facility in Athlone (Winning Entry in RIAI Competition) and Mount Juliet Estate in Kilkenny. David joined Brian Conroy and Arthur Hickey as a partner in the practice in 1998 and continued in that role until 2011. David is an RIAI (Grade III) approved Conservation Architect and has carried out extensive renovation & conservation works during his career.
