Canice (pronounced Ca-niss) was a 6th century monk and founder of an early monastic site from which Kilkenny City grew. Architectural remains from this period are testament to a building approach which valued clarity and permanence.
CANICE Architects was formed by Damien Curry & Emily-Ann Gilligan in 2017. The partners gained 10 years experience working in London for award winning architecture studios on a number of Europe’s most exciting projects before establishing the practice in Ireland. 
While in London both partners received their professional certification from the University of Westminster. 
Areas of expertise include residential, educational and public buildings with a particular interest in the arts. 
CANICE Architects are a RIAI Practice Member.
