Architects are masters of building design and can make your dream house a reality. Perhaps you would like to find architects to help you extend the kitchen and install bifold doors opening out onto a newly landscaped garden? Maybe the challenge is a loft conversion but you’re not sure how to make the most of the limited space up there? You might even wish to hire architects to help you build your own house from the ground up. Architects can help you to get a clearer idea of what is possible, both in terms of the land you own and the budget you have. They have extensive knowledge of architectural design, construction methods and building materials, not to mention a strong appreciation of ergonomics – warmth, light and flow within a property. Architects will also be far more capable of seeing the bigger picture – carefully balancing aesthetic appeal with structural safety – and navigating all those little steps from concept through to completion. And with their local knowledge, your architects will also often help to obtain planning permission and building regulations approval. More

Optimise Home

5 Dec 2012
“Optimise Design combines wonderful, innovative and beautiful design, with top notch service. At every stage I was advised on how to optimise my budget and make the best use of my space. I got more than I hoped for - and I love my house now. It's my favourite place to be.”

“Eva provides a unique and really useful service. In 2 hours she gave me scaled drawings of 4 options to change the layout of the kitchen/living/dining space. As an architect she understands light and space plus the practical implications of changes.I am really excited now about taking it forward with Eva.”

“Five years after completion, we are still very pleased with Brendan's work on a major refurbishment of our 1930s-built home. As is clear from our rating, we have no hesitation in recommending him as architect/designer/project supervisor. As with any such work, one still has to do one's own due diligence at each phase of the project - particularly during the design/specification phase, in addition to construction. Other professionals we employed for this project volunteered that they had very rarely seen such detailed drawings/specifications. Inevitably, there are a few things we would have done slightly differently, but very few.”

“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.”

“We are working on a very interesting project with Adrian Hill Architects at the moment. Adrian and his colleagues could not be more reasonable, clear in communication and helpful when asked. Otherwise happy to not micro-manage the contractor and staff on site. It is not a daily occurence that a building contractor feels this way about an architect. I have had a look at some other of their project which are display of true skill, creative energy and abundant knowledge of architecture and construction. If you are a home owner looking for an architect, I can't imagine there being too many architects to rival this team in areas that really matter for a successful project.”

“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.”

“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.”

“We have worked with both Gareth and Seamus on separate projects. They have both been exceptionally pleasant to deal with. Skilled, knowledgeable, talented architects but above all, a couple of nice, reasonable guys. They have both provided very clear and unambiguous drawings and specifications and have managed the contractor-client relationships extremely well. The projects got finished and we all parted ways as friends - that's saying something! We would highly recommend this practice to home owners and contractors (or should we be encouraging competition?!?) equally.”

“David designed the perfect family living space that wraps around the ground level of our home. It is the building equivalent of a hug! It provides space to meet everyone's needs and has added extra light in what was otherwise an underused dark space.”
