Client References:

"I have just completed a renovation of a house in Kimmage 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."

"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."
