About Us

We are a small practice led by Sean Keaney, Architect and practice Director. Sean brings many years experience in designing community colleges; primary schools; and a range of domestic projects; together with administrating small and large contracts in healthcare. Through fairview architecture, he has led projects from £6,000 to £1m in value.

Sean’s experience includes time spent in small practices undertaking private, personal commissions, through to employment in an international company. He has undertaken all aspects of architectural work from inception to contract administration and is responsible for award-winning design in the sustainability field.

Sean is supported in an administrative role by Mary, his wife. She may well be the first person you speak to when you call, and is responsible for much of the day to day organisation and smooth running of the office.

Our practice was established in 2009 and has undertaken a wide range of commissions since then. We approach each project afresh and treat it with individual attention. So our projects do not follow a practice style but respond to their specific setting and brief, to your requirements, to make use of appropriate material and design. You won’t get a project solution imposed on you, but arrived at by mutual development and conversation.

Sean is registered with both the RIBA and the ARB. More information on the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) is available here. For information on the ARB (Architects Registration Board) see here. See also our entry on ARB’s register here.
