What our Clients say

I have just completed a renovation of a house and would highly recommend Joan to any prospective client. I first met Joan a number of years ago in my role as an estate agent when we sold an apartment in Dublin 6 that she renovated. I was struck at the time by the very positive reaction from the buying public to the renovation in part because of a number of clever ideas that made a significant difference to the apartment, which ultimately was reflected in the price achieved.
When renovating my own property I found Joan to have a very clear idea of what we wanted to achieve, excellent on detail & focused on controlling the costs, she also provided a lot of input and ideas throughout the entire process.

Robert Lawson

Joan has worked with us on a couple of projects in our home. She offered great advice and her ideas for the spaces were fantastic. The team she recommended to carry out the work were very professional and easy to work with. Joan was recommended to us and we in turn have recommended her to others without hesitation. She is a true professional and it is a pleasure to work with her. We hope to do so again in the future.

Deirdre Markey and Ray Hanley

Joan was recommended to us by a friend. When he was recommending her he said to me that her attention to detail was one of the best things. Having worked with Joan I would definitely agree with this. Joan took what we wanted and designed a room that was not only functional but everything we wanted. Joan was always happy to answer questions no matter how small and was very efficient in everything she did. I would definitely recommend Joan to my friends and have done so. If I ever need an architect again I wouldn't hesitate to call Joan.
