APC DONALD ARCHITECTS

Apc Donald Architects Wells

Apc Donald Architects was formed by Elliot Donald on 01 January 2002.  He was formerly  senior partner for 14 years at McCormick Donald Architects  which he dissolved in December 2001. His  father Joel Donald was founding partner of Craig McCormick and Partners in 1968 (subsequently re-titled McCormick Donald in 1980).

The firm prides itself on being a friendly approachable professional practice where the Principal takes an active role in all projects. Although based in the North West, geographically the practice works throughout United Kingdom with recent projects including schools in Kildare, house extension in London as well as Meteorological offices, Dublin and churches in Artane, Julianstown and Laytown Co. Meath.

Elliot Donald’s scheme for Civic offices in Westport was one of 5 shortlisted in an International design competition organised by the Royal Institute of Architects of United Kingdom (RIAUK) which attracted 97 entries worldwide. The scheme was specifically lauded for its “extra-dramatic interface with park”. The civic offices and library at Milford Co. Donegal included an urban study for the integration of urban space and new link road to integrate the new building into the existing tight knit townscape. The new civic offices for Wells City Council led the way in the regeneration of the riverside.
