London-based design & architecture practice MoreySmith announces expansion into Belfast

Feb 15, 2018

MoreySmith, one of Europe’s leading design and architecture practices, has chosen Belfast for the opening of its second office, creating 13 new jobs.

Founded in 1993 and headquartered in London, MoreySmith provides architectural design, interior and exterior refurbishment and branding services to both occupiers and developers. The new office marks a significant milestone for the company.

Welcoming the company to Northern Ireland, Alan Wilson, Director of International Investment at Invest Northern Ireland comments: “MoreySmith has worked with a number of high profile clients including Sony Music, Primark, Coca-Cola, JP Morgan Investment and Ballymore (on Dublin Landings). They are now expecting to grow sales over the next three years, and are looking into expand further into the European market. To support this growth, MoreySmith has opened a new office in Belfast, offering exciting opportunities for local architects.”

We identified Belfast as the location to grow MoreySmith operations because of the strong range of skillsets Northern Ireland has to offer.

The new office will have an architectural bias, headed by Lesley Kelley, Director of Architecture. Lesley, originally from Northern Ireland, comments: “We identified Belfast as the location to grow MoreySmith operations because of the strong range of skillsets Northern Ireland has to offer. There will be opportunities for recent university graduates, as well as experienced senior architects to work on fantastic schemes across Europe.”

New roles will be created by 2020 and Invest NI has offered the company £78,000 towards new positions.
