Charred Timber

Time to get this house clad! After a couple days at it I can really appreciate the hard work that goes into creating this beautiful timber. Thanks to Sasha Toasted for all her tips and supply of her gorgeous sealant with built in UV protection.

2017 Year in review


2017 has been a great year with lots of projects starting on site and lots more due to start early next year.

We have been extremely fortunate to have worked on projects ranging from £15k up to £2m.

We love the variety of working on differing scales of projects and meeting with both private and commercial clients, helping turn their hopes and aspirations into reality.

New Year is on the way and I really do thank all our clients for the business and opportunities you have given us. Wishing you a prosperous New Year!

Happy New Year to All for 2018

Merry Christmas

To all clients and work colleagues, thanks for a great year.

That’s us all finished for 2017!

Have a great Christmas and New Year. Looking forward to what 2018 brings!


Ask an Architect

This year Glenn Massey Architect will again participate in an architectural event with a great cause, 'ask an architect'.

To book one of our 10 available consultations visit

Ask an architect is an unique annual event and takes place over a single week each year. During that week architects across all of Northern Ireland will offer their services free of charge, giving advice to those considering a building or renovation project, all for a charitable a charitable donation of a minimum of £40 to local charity The Jill Todd Trust, in partnership with Friends of the Cancer Centre. ask an architect will give members of the public the opportunity to get expert advice from a chartered architect on building projects of all shapes and sizes.

This year ask an architect will be held 13 - 19 May 2017 inclusive.

The initiative is organised by the Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA), PLACE and the Jill Todd Trust. Thanks to our sponsors who cover administrative costs and provide critical pro bono services, 100% of all funds raised by ‘ask an architect’ will be used by Friends of the Cancer Centre to support local cancer research through clinical trials at the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology (CCRCB) at Queen’s University, Belfast.

Extension revisit

Lovely day at a client & friends house at the weekend.
Love seeing how the extension and re-planning of the house and garden has worked so well, and getting better everyday as the garden develops around it. Cant take any credit for the planting, well done Linda!

RSNO Reviews

Great reviews of the new concert hall and rehearsal space. I had the pleasure of working closely with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Glasgow Royal Concert hall for 4 years. Immensely proud of the great reviews being received.


Sound Tests

I had the pleasure of spending 4 years designing and constructing this fantastic new concert hall and rehearsal space, on behalf of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Glasgow city council.

This was the first sound test which took place yesterday and appears to have been a success.

Can’t wait for the grand opening!

Dublin office fitout

 An early photograph of the new Stair and slide. Great working with Marc Kilkenny architecture on this project. GMA carried out the detailed design of the stair and slide on behalf of MKA. Can’t wait to see the finished MKA fit out. Let’s be honest, every office needs a slide and a fireman’s pole

Cowan Dwelling update

After a few minor tweaks we are excited to have lodged a planning application for this extension and internal remodelling of this lovely family home.
