Brian Heavin - Architect Box Design Studio

Brian Heavin


For as long as I can remember, design has played a major part in my life. Growing up in the Irish countryside, I’ve always been fascinated with the built form and how it interacts with its surroundings. Initially my love of landscape design resulted in being offered a position at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Dublin, to study Horticulture and Landscape Design. However, my passion for residential design won out in the end and I successfully completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Architectural Technology at Napier University Edinburgh.

Over the past 14 years I have lead Health, Education and Residential projects for several multinational architectural firms based in the UK and Australia. In January 2016 I established my own firm BOX Design Studio, to focus solely on bespoke residential projects that are client focused and environmentally sustainable.

I work closely with my clients and their design brief to produce practical contemporary solutions that fit within budget. I am respectful of a building’s history and aim to maximise light and space, creating where possible a seamless indoor/outdoor aesthetic.

I understand the time constraints that people face balancing their work/home life whilst managing finances. This is where BOX Design Studio fits in. I offer a full range of building design services that can be adapted to your needs and aim to take the stress out of the design and build process.
