Joe Fallon Design, Architecture, MCIAT, Dundrum, Dublin 14

Imaginative Designs To Enhance Your Home

Joe Fallon Hello, my name is Joe Fallon, I am a registered Chartered Architectural Technologist (MCIAT), Chartered Building Engineer (C. Build E.) & ICIOB Chartered Institute of Building Member with full professional indemnity insurance. Our firm, Joe Fallon Design and FKA Architects is registered with the CIAT and CABE, Society of Chartered Surveyors of Ireland SCSI as an Assigned Certifier under the new building regulation requirements.

With over 30 years experience within the construction industry, the bulk of my work involves designing extensions, one off houses, renovations and a small amount of commercial work. We provide a full range of architect services throughout the Leinster region. I am a registered BER assessor with Sustainable Energy Ireland and energy efficiency is central to my work.

My design style seems to incorporate a lot of glazing, throwing light into previous darkened corners, and inventing new bright, spacious light filled spaces to adapt to growing families as they evolve.

I have been shortlisted in 2011 for CMG Architectural Practice of The Year and my work regularly features in home improvement and architect magazines. I believe in going the extra mile, listening carefully to my clients wishlist, and understanding that this will probably be one of the biggest upheavals they will be about to commence. I thoroughly love what I do, and seeing the finished project always excites me every time.

Please have a look around at some of my previous work, and if you like what you see, give me a call and I can arrange a consultation. My fees are fixed price and reasonable.
