Eilish Barry, a project leader at Hayball, found her passion for architecture through a pivotal conversation with a family friend who emphasised the profound impact architects have on shaping the built environment. 

This inspiration has guided her professional journey, predominantly focused on social infrastructure projects aimed at enhancing communities. 

Eilish’s work showcases a commitment to designing for both social and environmental wellbeing, incorporating considerations such as local materials, communal spaces and support for local labour opportunities. 

Through these endeavours, she explains what she has witnessed and how the tangible value of good design for communities is universal.
