Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
The House Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"We worked with Josh to design and project manage an extension to our 1930s house in Dublin 7. It included demolishing our old kitchen and lean-to sheds, and building a new kitchen/dining room with a downstairs bathroom / utility room. Beforehand we visited several clients in the local area who had positive experiences with House Architects. The pricing structure was very clear. Josh was a pleasure to work with, and unflappable, which is always very reassuring. Once we had designs we were happy with, he worked to put the project out to tender and managed the relationship and the payments to the builder. This was the most valuable aspect for us. Particularly towards the end of the project, there were probably issues where we would have let the builder cut corners, but it was great to have Josh there to hold the line and ensure the project was completed to specification. We've been living with our extension for 18 months now and we're delighted with it - it's transformed the way we use the house and the garden."

RMA Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"I am an Interior Designer who has worked with Robin Mandal Architects on a number of projects, both conservation and new build. I found them a great, forward thinking, dynamic team with a great sense of design. It is a pleasure to work with them. Their approach is considered and well thought out. When working with them they have always treated my ideas with respect and taken my options on board. They are good at listening to a client’s requirements and giving the desired result. They offer a great service."

Ronan Rose Roberts Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"Ronan's attention to detail was very important at both planning & construction stages to minimise queries from planners & our builder, respectively. Ronan's awareness of the construction of sustainable buildings was also very evident in the construction drawings for our home, which was key to the house being as efficient as possible. The end result is a light filled, energy efficient building that is contemporary in design but at its heart is very much a family home. From design through to construction completion, Ronan has always been very professional to deal with and we would have no hesitation in recommending Ronan as an architect."
- Robert Malone
Bright Design Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"We engaged BDA to plan a renovation and extension of a 1930s build 3 bed semi. The renovation and extension involved a complete gutting of the existing building, extending to the back and new insulation. Alan Burns was our architect for the duration of the project. He helped assemble our team of builder (AK Builders), engineer (Robert Barry) and energy consultant (Arthur O Donnell) for the project and were more than satisfied with the result. BDA presented us with several designs and once we agreed on a final design they ran the tendering process and vetted the winner. All aspects of the project were over seen to a considerable level of detail by BDA and we had weekly site meetings to go over progress and address changes. We also utilised their optional fixtures and fittings advice and were accompanied to various blinds, lighting, kitchen and bathroom showrooms by Alan. We found his to be one of the best features as we simply did not have the time or expertise to apply the level of practical consideration that Alan provided before choosing our kitchen and bathroom. Also having Alan on board at this level meant that the builder had all rooms ready and correctly measured up for the delivery of the fixtures. Alan was present at all times during the project either by email or phone and never once delayed in giving us assistance or advice when we needed it. Post project snags were address by the builder and BDA were also heavily involved in this part of the process, ensuring that the original spec was fully realised. I would have no hesitation I recommending Bright Design Architects to anyone requiring their services."

Dublin Design Studio
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"When we approached David from Dublin Design Studio in 2011 he was faced with the difficult task of meeting the living requirements of our large family comprising of teenagers and young adults. With this project he did not disappoint. David made the process of a difficult planing application easy and with a given time frame of 2 years and a hope of being settled in for Christmas 2012. We were very pleased to have moved in on the 18th of December 2012. He worked very closely with the building contractor, DC Building & Energy Services to complete a project involving the demolition of an old dwelling and the design and new build of a fabulous contemporary Eco. build comprising of 5,500 sq ft living accommodation. It was a great opportunity and a very enjoyable project to work with such fabulous professionals in their fields. Sandra Salveta"

O'Keeffe Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"O'keeffe Architects are a friendly and creatively motivated architectural practice. Their work is of an excellent standard which stands out as being quite unique. Each and every project that I have photographed for them as an architectural photographer has a distinctive flare that lends to the vital ingredient to produce quality images that further reinforce their design skills. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to a homeowner ."

Hausman Architectural Services
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"David worked on our house renovation from Jan-Jul 2016. We found him to be personable, accessible, opinionated (in a good way) and committed to delivering a project that works well and is beautiful. During the design of our house, David worked through three iterations of drawings until he and we agreed a plan. David gained a good understanding of what we needed and incorporated our needs into the plans. David helped us to recruit a very good builder. During the build it was invaluable having David around to ensure building was being done in accordance with national safety standards but also to negotiate with the builder how certain work should be done e.g. David insisted on RSJs being recessed, had strong opinions on the height of the extension, and the positioning of a roof light to achieve maximum light and aesthetic appeal. David was a great help in telling us where to source materials in particular the door but also floors, the kitchen and bathroom furniture. He renovates houses all the time so if you know what you want, he can tell you where to get it. David is really interested in producing beautiful work so he's a great person to have in your corner and is always a pleasure to deal with. We recommend highly."

McCann Moore Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"McCann Moore helped us to realise our dream of extending and modernising our family home throughout. They assisted us in engaging and managing professional contractors to deliver the project on our behalf, providing a turnkey service for the required budget. Pauls attention to detail is excellent, he listened to our ideas and provided his own, without which the final result would have been greatly diminished. A thoroughly excellent architectural and project management practice for all sizes of projects"

Bravo Architects
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"Rod was our architect for an addition to our country house during 2017. Theproject included a big studio-library, and a sitting room with a balcony,overlooking the garden. The ceiling is inclined and very high, supported by wooden beams.The result is beautiful and very practical. He also provided us with a spacefor computer work and two large bedrooms. Rod came up with a great design, helped us find a team of very competent builders, and then performed assiduous Inspections and kept in touch with the workers during the construction process. The whole experience was a great success. Thanks, Rod!"

Fingal Planning Consultants
Architects and Building Designers in Dublin
"People say that building a house is one of the most stressful things you can do and they were not wrong. We 'survived' our house build and now we can safely say that Emmett and Fingal Planning consultants was one of the very few people that gave us consistent and sound advice/service. Our build was very complicated due to many factors, but chiefly the type of the house, a low-energy "passive house"-style, the location and having several contractors involved posed the greatest challenges. Emmett guided us through the process in his trademark no-nonsense approach and we were very lucky to have him when trying to manage all the stakeholders that a build inevitably has, like authorities, contractors, neighbours and so on. During the rough patches of the project, he always stuck by his word and actually did more than he originally signed up for. When Emmett says he will do something he does it; he is open, honest, and little ruffles his feathers - a much needed attribute when emotions are high and money is low! We would not have completed the project without Emmett and we gladly give him our highest recommendation. Michael and Christine Mullan-Jensen"

How do I find the best architect for my home design project?


It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Dublin provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?


As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Dublin are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective interior architects:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
