Our Goal

Our goal is to improve how you live at home by making building an architecturally designed home as simple and stress free as possible.

Our Vision

We believe a beautifully designed home is essential for a happy and thriving family life. We believe in making these homes more accessible to young couples juggling their professional and  family lives.

Our Values

At KMC Homes we value the people we work with. We value our employees, our clients, our support personnel and our neighbours. We value ethics and fairness in our dealings, excellence in our performance, and sustainability in our world.

KMC Homes operate in Cork City & the surrounding area and typically work on projects ranging from €250k+ for bespoke houses.

The team is led by Kieran McCarthy, a designer and project manager with 20 years training and experience in Ireland & the UK.

“I come from a family long associated with building and design (my great great grandfather was a church builder I’m told!) I have travelled to many beautiful parts of the world (with either a guitar or a surfboard). I have seen how people in other parts of the world live.

I remember walking with my father one evening and looking at a new house being built. It was a very pedestrian design and I wondered how long it would take for the new owners to realise what mistakes had been made once the sheen of the new house had worn off. Where was the open plan living space, where was the evening light going to enter, where was the flow in the space?

I thought there is something wrong with this picture..

I compare our old family home with those that are built today and there is very little difference apart from a higher energy rating. We built the pyramids over 4500 years ago and the best we can offer most people today is a rectangular shaped house with a sloping roof, I felt compelled to offer something better.

I believe modern people have a right to live in a well designed home. A great living space makes a huge difference to the quality of life at home for you and your family. It elevates you!

Adopting a Design & Build model widely used in New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the US, I founded KMC Homes in 2003 to make beautifully designed homes more accessible.”
