Mary and David Gillespie: New Infill Mews-House – Planning Application Required.
“Michael is very creative with his designs and is accommodating with client’s input. He is very thorough with his selection of materials and fittings, and his oversight of the building works is also excellent. He certainly had a good rapport with my builders. I would have no hesitation in using him in the future.”
Jane and Tim Simpson: Private House Extension & Imps. – No Planning Application Required.
“We had our own ideas about what changes we might make to our house to give us more space and comfort during our children’s teenage years. Michael has a great ability to dig deeper into needs to find out what we were really looking for and come up with a design far more attractive and practical than we ever could have. We are absolutely thrilled with the outcome – we have more space and light than we ever imagined possible. We have a huge amount of discreet and really useful storage, so there is no clutter or ugliness in our living space. Our house now feels big, bright, and comfortable and tidy all the time. It has really changed the way we live and we love it. Our family, friends, and neighbours are all ‘wowed’ by what we have achieved with our house. The design and building process was very smooth, with Michael managing everything for us the whole way through and making sure that we got the best results from our builder and all the other suppliers and contractors on the project. Having an architect like Michael on the project was worth every penny in terms of the comfort he gave us throughout the project and the final result.”
Deirdre and Mark Moran: Private House, Conservation, and Extension – Planning Application Reqd.
“We bought a period home with the intention of restoring and extending it to become a family home fit for contemporary living.”
From the moment we engaged Michael to work with us, we found him to be open, inclusive, and knowledgeable. He was very effective in securing the right planning permission (the house is listed) without it having to go to appeal.
Michael worked closely with us, and the builder, to come up with appropriate, sensible solutions to issues that arose throughout the project. He introduced us to innovative building products and techniques, which enhanced the finished building. His attention to detail was admirable. In addition, Michael’s has the “architects eye” especially when it comes to incorporating and optimising the use of natural light in building design.
“Three years after we moved in, we are still thrilled with our new home. It’s a pleasure to live in, and most of the credit for that is due to Michael’s vision and his commitment to what was a challenging brief. We are so grateful for what he accomplished for us, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others.”
Eamonn Siggins, Chief Executive, Institute of Certified Public Accountants: Section 5 Application
“I would recommend Michael Doyle as an architect who communicates well with the client, is sensitive to, and responsive to, client’s needs, and goes the extra mile to exceed expectation and to deliver a project on budget and on time.”
