Indo-European Practice: Brett Mahon

Indo-European Practice: Brett Mahon

Where are they now?

Since Graduating from Queens, Brett has been working and collaborating on projects around Europe and India. In 2020 Brett cofounded ROOH Studio with his partner and three friends. ROOH Studio is an Indo-European collective for contextual, strategic, responsible and thoughtful architecture. Present in India, Ireland & Finland.

The studio is currently working on several projects in India and Europe, taking a contextual approach of combining local materials with contemporary construction methods. ROOH Studio finds that their cultural and geographic diversity as a team gives them a critical and analytical edge as part of their design process when working across different cultural settings.
The studio has delivered projects from pavilions demonstrating the potential of urban farming to office buildings responding to tropical climates using passive cooling design strategies. ROOH is passionate about all aspects of the design industry and are working towards expanding their work into an upscaled design and product market, currently working on bespoke solutions with two independent companies in Finland, Innogreen and Vivaret. They have also been responsible for holding various 1:1 workshops across Europe and India focused on design, research and built solutions for socio-economic-cultural issues and themes.

Brett was previously based in Dublin working for Arigho Larmour Wheeler Architects, getting to work on exciting domestic and commercial projects with a focus on design and creative pragmatisim. In his spare time he worked on a number of his own medium scale design projects which include the construction of a city event pavilion for the cultural capital 2020 in the city of Rijeka, an outdoor street scape in Trento, Italy and the construction of a meditation space in the hilltops of Kerala in India. He was also collaborating on built housing projects in India alongside friends which he has run workshops with at various Architecture Student events such as EASA and the National Association of students of Architecture in India.
