Farmhouse Style with Barrel Roof
Two storey, four bedroom detached house and garage in Westmeath
A contemporary take on a traditional farmhouse style residence. The aim of this design was to redesign the farmhouse style to suit modern day living. While maximising solar gains, beautiful views and creating efficient spaces to lower construction costs.
MORE Architecture is a midland based BIM ready design studio offering architectural and interior design services to residential and commercial clients.
Having decided to build, I meet with More Architecture for a free consultation. I first met with Rory, and within an hour of the first meeting, I decided to trust the lads and on their suggestion got them to do a concept drawing. I found all involved to be very agreeable, a detailed breakdown of costings and no pressure as to how much or how little involvement the lads were to have. I gave them a comprehensive wish list which would be near impossible to accomplish and from the first draft they got it perfect, they certainly listen to the client and then add there own expertise. I usually do not leave reviews, but for two reasons I have, firstly they deserve the recognition for the for me, it was a huge decision to put my trust and money into a firm who would ultimately have responsibility for designing a home. I want to give my honest opinion of how the lads made the process very relaxed and stress-free and the whole process an enjoyable one.
We reached out to More Architecture via email and had a free initial consultation meeting which we found really helpful as we had little experience dealing with Architects and a new build. Rory and Ian are very professional to deal with it. They couldn’t have been any more accommodating. They offer great packages on all stages of design and have some innovative design ideas. Rory and Ian listened to our (lengthy) brief, completed a site survey and created a fabulous concept design booklet to see help us see our home come to life.
My husband and I contacted More Architecture to help us get started with our forever home as we had absolutely no idea where to begin or how the whole process worked. We met Rory for a free consultation initially and straight away we had a better idea of where to go and what was possible for us. On the back of this we hired them to do the initial designs for our house and we were delighted with the concept design booklet they presented to us. We felt they really put in a lot of time and effort to design a beautiful house for us while keeping things realistic (for planning applications) and within the planned budget. They have always been prompt with replies and easy to contact, we highly recommend them!
