Pietro and Sabrina Macari

I have employed Paul Hogan since 1996 as my architect on numerous projects ranging from commercial buildings, planning appeals, house extensions and the building of my private home.

He is very thorough and works  with the client as well as the contractor. He takes care of every little detail, many times beyond his realm of responsibility, which has taken a big burden off my shoulders.  Paul is always available  for consultation nothing is ever a problem.  I would definitely call him a hands-on professional, he is very  professional in his approach but also gives a personal feeling in meetings with clients and contactors this I feel is very important when dealing with a family home extension or new build as understanding the needs of your family and it's living space is paramount.  

Paul's interaction with me and my wife has always been honest, respectful and insightful. There have been many times when I and my wife  have made suggestions during the planning process of a project and Paul has always considered them, never dismissing them.  He has always provided detailed information concerning these suggestions including cost analysis which has allowed us to make informed decisions

He has a natural ability to foresee problems and his able to resolve or avoid them happening, as many can occur when building a family home. 

Paul has a vast knowledge and experience of local planning laws, which makes planning applications run more smoothly and with very successful results.

Paul provides the complete package from concept discussions,  drawing up of plans, planning meetings, planning applications, liaising with other professionals and providing on site consultation.

We look forward to working with him on a future building project

Paul has worked for me on 2 different projects the most recent a sizeable extension to our current home. His expertise and eye for design are first class and his in-depth knowledge of the planning process and regulations ensured a smooth project throughout. Would highly recommend Paul

Pat Constantine and Grace Gaskin

We are delighted to act as a reference for Paul Hogan who designed and oversaw the building of a considerable extension on our house in 2012.

We are extremely pleased with the design and the finished product, but more importantly, we are impressed with his true professional and personal manner during the entire process. 

Paul took on board all our requirements and came up with a design that exceeded our expectations.  Paul handled all aspects of the Planning Permission application with Dublin City Council, as well as the tendering process and had an excellent working relationship with the builder that we appointed.

We would not hesitate in recommending Paul to any of our friends or family in the future.

Please feel free to contact either myself or Pat if further information is required or if you would like to see the house itself.

We engaged the services of Paul Hogan in the construction of a 400sq ft extension to our house and the remodelling of the existing ground-floor space. When researching the project we spoke to several architects. We settled on Paul to do the job due to his obvious passion to create the right space for us, his breath of ideas in how to best utilise the space and his approach to identifying the right builder to do the work.

We were not disappointed. From inception through to completion, Paul stayed engaged liaising with ourselves, the builder and several contractors. The job came in on time and within budget. Most importantly for us though, he delivered a build to us that went beyond our expectations and anything we had hoped for. The foundations that he set out at the outset in terms of planning and design and his diligence in seeing the plan though greatly impressed us. Simply put, we could not have achieved the build without Paul.

As a follow on from his good work, when my own employer was moving premises I had no hesitation in putting forward Pauls name to carry out survey works on our new premises. Paul was contracted to do this work and again completed it in a timely and efficient manner.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Paul Hogan.

E.Moore, Confey,Leixlip


We employed Paul Hogan as architect for a new house in Confey, Leixlip. Paul designed, produced tender drawings and carried out on site inspections from commencement through to completion. The house was designed to a high specification achieving an A2 BER.

Paul provided an excellent professional service and designed a house which took account of our requirements and exceeded our expectations from the outset. Paul kept us informed throughout the entire process and provided expert advice during both the design and construction stages.

He worked very well with the contractor and was always available to meet and issue instructions on site. We are truly pleased with the design and the finished product and in particular we are impressed with his true professional and personal manner during all stages.

I would without reservation highly recommend Paul as the architect for any project that you may be considering.
