William Kaye-Parry (1853-1932)

Articled to John McCurdy from 1870 to 1873. Later studied engineering at Trinity College, Dublin. He started to practice independently as an architect and civil engineer in 1877 and in 1880 won a competition for a design for a concert hall at the Royal Irish Academy of Music, Westland Row. He entered into partnership with George M. Ross in late 1898 – operating as Kaye-Parry & Ross. In 1926 or 1927 Arnold F. Hendy was taken into the partnership which became known as Kaye-Parry, Ross & Hendy. Ross died in 1927 and Kaye-Parry in 1932, having lived in London for several years before his death. Hendy carried on the practice until his own death in 1958.
