Hillen Architects was established in 2009 by Principal Barry Hillen and is located along Newcastle’s Central Promenade.

The practice has experience working on a wide range of building types, from high quality contemporary residences to more traditional rural style dwellings. Our extensive portfolio also includes work in the health, commercial and industrial sectors.

We provide a full range of services from initial planning advice & design, through to detailed drawings for building control compliance, and on site attendances.

Our designs are varied, carefully considered & site sensitive, inspired by the site, brief & client. We make innovative use of space, light & design all tailored to our clients requirements.

"Slievemoyle cottages have used the services of Hillen Architects for several building projects over a period of years and have been extremely happy with the outcomes. Barry has been receptive to our ideas and brought these together with his professional expertise to produce plans which meet our needs. The buildings produced have been practical, functional, aesthetically attractive and yet not expensive to build."

"We used Barry to design and oversee the build of our house in Newcastle. He overcame problematics planning issues, and had an excellent relationship with our builder than culminated in the completion of our property on time. Barry had a professional and imaginative approach to the build, which helped us through the design and build process."
– David and Anna Quin

"Barry's efficiency in obtaining our Planning Permission within a short timescale and with no objections or amendments required is further testimony to his excellent attention to detail and his expertise and professionalism. His willingness to assist and co-operate with Building Control officials and the Building Contractor involved in the building of our home removed a lot of potential pressure for us and provided us with full confidence that our project was managed to the highest of standards."
