Light Into Small Spaces

Testimonial provided to Simon Hoe Architect by Lucinda Bray and Deb Brennan from Dun Laoghaire, Co. Dublin on 31-Jul-2015

I sourced Simon Hoe on the internet from Canada, when I was planning to replace the bathroom extension on my artisan dwelling in Dun Laoghaire.

From the beginning, I liked his focus on bringing light into small spaces, and the clear way he priced each stage of the proposed job. We corresponded via email and telephone for a year, in order to finalise the design, obtain planning permission, and put the job out to tender. Throughout what could have been a very frustrating long distance process , Simon was helpful, responsive, and reassuring.

We arrived in Ireland a week before I hoped the work might begin, and Simon moved quickly to arrange an initial meeting with the builder and draw up a detailed contract . As a result, work began on the house the following day. Throughout the next six weeks, Simon visited the site regularly and signed off on each stage of the work before authorising payment to the builder. Inevitably, we met some site problems along the way, and Simon was extremely flexible in making minor adjustments to the plans so the work could carry on without delay.

The final result was outstanding – thanks to Simon’s design, the formerly dark north facing side of the house is now flooded with light, and the placement of new windows and skylight has brought the courtyard garden into the house. My tiny 500 sq ft house now feels double the size.

In every respect, Simon exceeded my expectations, and I would be happy to recommend him.
