To open up the world of architecture to everyone. To help you develop fundamental design skills and experience the feeling of spontaneous creativity through hands-on model building. And to continually develop our unique system as a practical tool for architects, a STEAM learning aid for education and as a fun way to release creative energy.
Light Bulb Moment!
As an architect, Damien Murtagh understood the value of a physical model to explore ideas and present designs to clients. However, traditional ‘cut and glue’ models are time consuming, impractical and expensive. The moment of insight came while he was developing a real modular building concept. He needed a modern system that was fast, reusable and cost-effective. To his amazement, nothing like this existed – so he decided to invent one from scratch!
We’re a bright team of architects, toy specialists, designers, model enthusiasts and all-round creative people. From our offices in Dublin and London, and our manufacturing facility in ‘The Garden of Ireland’, Co. Wicklow, we work tirelessly to share our enthusiasm and ideas for Arckit.
With your help, we’re building a global community of architects, engineers, designers, homebuilders, educators, students and model hobbyists who are inspiring us to make Arckit even more advanced, practical, educational and fun.
We have big dreams and aspirations for Arckit’s continual evolution. Our aim is to one day make Arckit available to everyone around the world, in particular for the underprivileged and underserved in society, as an invaluable tool for learning. Our hope is that Arckit will inspire and educate the next generation of creators and help to make the world a better place.
