Aquarium and Underwater restaurant design specialist



Managing Director Mike Murphy (70), has decided it is time to retire, and hang up his calculator.

This means that the company he founded 38 years ago will now not take on any further work, and as of 30th October 2018 will cease all operations, and preparations will be made, either to close down the company over the coming months, OR, to sell the business, if there is a suitable and willing buyer, (please contact Mike Murphy if interested..?).

This website will be kept live until March 2019, then closed.

We have been involved in some amazing projects over the years, and worked with many wonderful people in many countries, and been honoured to work for many very special clients. We leave on a satisfying high, having completed some very special world-first projects.

It is sadly the end of an era for us, but also happily the start of a new era, where Mike can enjoy all the advantages of a relaxed retirement, helping family, new travel adventures, and awakening of many hobbies which were held back during his work years.

Thank you to all, for a great ride! Keep well and be happy!


Best Wishes,
Mike Murphy
