In 2000, Kevin Carmody moved to Europe and worked for David Chipperfield Architects in London until establishing Carmody Groarke in 2006. The practice has since developed a reputation for working internationally on a wide range of arts, cultural, heritage and residential projects, both new build and within the context of historic buildings. Carmody Groarke has earned international recognition, winning several architectural competitions and awards for completed projects. Monographs of the studio have been published in the international periodical, 2G and in the Spanish publication, El Croquis, No.195.
Carmody has lectured internationally about the work of the practice and taught at several architecture schools, including The Bartlett School of Architecture at the University College London and the Royal College of Art. He was a visiting professor at the University of Stuttgart, 2016–17. Carmody studied architecture in Melbourne at RMIT graduating in 1999.
