Coleroon Shore was formed in 2014 with the goal of providing imaginative architectural solutions within the economic and developmental constraints of its clients. The firm believes that all projects benefit from a process involving the client, architect, builder and other specialists in an informative collaboration, and that successful projects are made possible through the management of all participants involved. We encourage this collaboration and act as a guide through the process of design and construction so that each project benefits from the participation and strengths of each team member. Also the opportunity to get people thinking about architecture as an integral part of the human experience, forms the basis of successful design which the company believes as a strong principle to a successful practice.

It might take a thousand ideas before arriving at the perfect one for a project or client. It's a necessary part of the creative architectural process and one that is to be taken seriously. Here's how to do it:


  • Start with a project mission statement
  • Create a mind map using key words and phrases in the mission statement
  • Use the mind map to arrive at the 3-5 top project objectives
  • Use the top 3-5 project objectives to brainstorm project goals in a non-judgmental environment
  • Put project objectives and goal aside for 2-4 weeks to let them marinate
  • Rigorously review goals and objectives to assign a priority ranking
  • Create project plan based on goals and objectives that includes milestones and contingencies
