sample testimonials

"Thank you Zeno for all you input and hard work, and also going beyond
what was necessary. We are very grateful. We chose the right man for the job.
You patience and calmness was much appreciated.
What we have now is a house for tomorrow and that is down to your design & knowledge."
Thank you,
Simon, Jennifer, Kate, Jacob, Hannah and Emilia, Bunclody 2018

"A very sincere thanks for helping us achive such a wonderful house. Our only problem
these days is having to leave Wexford and face our far more modest house in Dublin.
As they say, a job well done!! Many thanks again"

Andrew, Cathy, Natasha and Melanie B., Dublin 2014

"Our journey to build the house started in 2008. We researched and met
up with numerous architects along the way but did not feel comfortable
that they could deliver on what we required. We first met Zeno in February 2010
and right from our first meeting we knew we had found the right architect for us
in that our house would be designed specifically for us to suit the location and
our requirements. He took our specification and drew up plans with the emphasis
on simplicity and easy living spaces that flowed. He orientated the house around
the sun thus maximising on the solar gain as the day progresses whilst
taking advantage of the views. His 3D models were particularly useful
as itís often difficult to see how the positioning of doors and windows
will feel in real life from a 2D drawing. Zeno managed to design our house
to accommodate large groups for family gatherings whilst keeping it cosy
for family living, not an easy task. We truly love our home and are
very grateful to Zeno for all his help.
We found Zeno highly professional and would have no hesitation
recommending him. Thank you Zeno."

"Thank you for designing a beautiful home for us. We are delighted
with the way everything has worked out. It was a great comfort for us
to know you were at the end of an email if we needed anything.
We hope your career continues to be a success."

Margaret & Fran B., Kiltealy 2013

"Although Zeno kept to our brief for a modestly proportioned house he didn't
compromise on any of our requirements and yet still managed to create a
lovely feeling of space throughout. His design managed to frame the
wonderful views and make the most of the natural light
- we are always happy to walk in the door"

Siobhan K., Bastardstown 2000

I hired Zeno at the start of 2009 to design my own house in Longford.
I had interviewed a number of other Architects but I felt from meeting
him that he would give me exactly what I wanted and he did not disappoint.
I had reviewed his very comprehensive website and was aware of his
previous work.

His professionalism and attention to detail ensured that we obtained
planning permission on the first attempt. This continued when we were
required to make some changes to the roof of the front porch as part
of the planning conditions.

I have no problem recommending Zeno to anyone who requires a
unique house design, value for money and a professional to successfully
steer their project though the planning system.

"When it came to our dream house we knew what we didn't want but couldn't quite
visualise what we did want. Zeno talked to us at length and, more importantly,
listened to us. As a result we got a design that we not only love but
one that perfectly suits our family's needs."

Chris & Sara S., Drinagh 2006

"Following our initial consultation with Zeno he presented us with
a detailed 3D model. This helped us to see exactly how the space would
work for us and I am sure it was one of the reasons that we
sailed through the planning process."

Kevin M., Bannow 2013

"Zeno was a pleasure to deal with.
We found him to be both accommodating and very well informed."

Senan O'R., Wexford 2008


"Although our site was somewhat tricky Zeno made the best use of views
and solar gain through the orientation of the building to create
a harmonious house that blends perfectly in the environment."
