Boyd Cody Architects is a design led practice that began as a partnership formed in 1997 in New York.
The two directors, Dermot Boyd and Peter Cody, studied together graduating from the Dublin Institute of Technology in 1990. Subsequently both spent time in Europe and the United States gaining valuable academic and professional experience, before returning to Ireland. Boyd Cody Architects Ltd. was established in 2000.
