Re: Re: Finding an Architect?
Be choosy when selecting an architect
The Irish Times
Find the right architect and you’ll have a beautiful home, but choose the wrong one and it could be a nightmare. When Richard and Joan Martin employed architects Sheila O’Donnell and John Tuomey to design them a house by the sea in Co Louth, the four of them piled into a JCB and were lifted into the air to find the ideal height for the perfect sea view. The finished house enjoys views out to the sea from many rooms, has space for a grand piano (which Richard plays) and shelves galore for the many books owned by the clients. So, choose the right architect and you will have a beautiful home that suits your needs and addresses the surrounding area. Choose the wrong architect, or try to go without one at all, and you face a potential nightmare.
