‘I wouldn’t have thought of consulting an architect for a very small project. The consultation through ‘ask an architect’ showed my idea was feasible. Without ‘ask an architect’, the idea would probably just have remained an idea!’
‘When we went to see Patrick we had planning in place. I wanted to get his opinion on what we were building and if he saw any major mistakes. He highlighted a few areas which we have taken on board and in order to keep our planning we proceeded by starting with our garage whilst reex-amining the items he mentioned.’
‘I am absolutely delighted with the service I have received so far from 2020 Architects! It was an excellent idea of having a free consultation with them first and your donation goes to Charity!! I am now in the process of designing my house with them then hopefully building soon! Michael and Siobhán were able to understand my brief and what we want out of our new house . I would totally recommend 2020 Architects and the ask an architect initiative.’
