Paul McAlister Architects create beautiful and sustainable spaces for living and working across Ireland and beyond.  We specialise in Passive House (Passivhaus) design.

As award-winning Architects and Passive House Designers, we have successfully completed many bespoke Certified Passive Houses and the multi-award-winning CREST Centre in Enniskillen.



The practice has a large portfolio of bespoke houses in both a modern and classically inspired style. We also specialise in  making our houses ultra-low energy Passivhaus or Passive House standard.


The practice has a diverse experience of both domestic and commercial projects. We have completed several flagship commercial buildings and continue to work in this field.

Education Sector

In recent years the practice has carried out a large amount of Education projects. Our flagship building in this sector is the award-winning  CREST Centre at South West College Enniskillen.


If you are thinking of building a new Eco home or a project of another type, we bring all our creativity and sustainable design ability to realise unique buildings that are both beautiful and functional.
