Carmody Groarke is an architectural practice founded in 2006 by Kevin Carmody and Andy Groarke. The practice has developed a reputation for working internationally on a wide range of arts, cultural, heritage, and residential projects, both new builds and within the context of historic buildings. Completed projects include the new entrance to the British Film Institute Southbank, the 7 July Memorial, the new architecture gallery at the Royal Institute of British Architects headquarters, an artist's studio for sculptor Antony Gormley, and a new members' room for the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Current projects include the Windermere Jetty Museum in the Lake District, an extension of the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, a major renovation of Dorset County Museum in Dorchester, a temporary museum at Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Hill House, and a new international arts venue for S1 Artspace within the listed Park Hill housing development in Sheffield. The studio is also designing a series of exhibitions including a major exhibition at the Royal Academy for Bill Viola Michelangelo.

The practice has earned international recognition, winning several architectural competitions and awards for completed projects including the Architect of the Year Award from Building Design. Monographs of the studio have been published in the international periodical, 2G; and in the Spanish publication, El Croquis no. 195.
