When we first met Michelle we had no idea of the how, what and where on the journey of house renovation and extension, what we did have was a vision for the form and function of our home with defined and usable spaces to meet our families needs now and into the future, while at the same time keen to avoid the simple square box extension to the rear. Michelle lead us through budget expectations, concept design, detailed design, planning, contractor bidding and appointment, through to construction, snagging and completion.
MHF Architects were hired as our architects and project managers for a single storey wrap-around extension to our family home in Dublin. Their expert approach to all aspects of the build meant that the project was finished on time, on spec and on budget. Their attention to detail and their ability to see the bigger picture were outstanding.
The service we received from MHF Architects was second to none. We couldn’t be more delighted with how our home renovation has turned out. The design was even better than we could have imagined. Michelle helped us achieve a functional, modern and beautiful home. The service from start to finish was professional, efficient and thorough. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend MHF architects.
MHF Architects designed the refurbishment of our new home to meet our needs for now and future proof it. The ongoing project management gave us a lovely security blanket that all work was carried out to a high standard.
Michelle designed a complete downstairs renovation and extension of our home. This project required planning permission. We found Michelle to be a thorough professional with great ideas and a practical outlook. She took on board what we wanted from our living space and delivered a design that is both functional and beautiful. We’re very happy to recommend Michelle’s services.
MHF Architects were appointed by Harold Boys’ National school for the construction of a classroom extension onto our existing school. Work was completed to a high standard, on time and in budget. Michelle was very helpful throughout and answered all queries and always kept us updated on progress. We have since appointed MHF Architects to address ongoing damp issues in the original schoolhouse which involved roof works, ventilation and damp proofing which has successfully resolved the issue. Most recently we are working together to replace the windows in the original building.
We commissioned MHF architect to remodel our existing offices to provide a new layout incorporating a new boardroom, meeting rooms and additional private offices. We are happy to say all this was delivered on time, within budget and to our complete satisfaction. We would have no hesitation in recommending MHF architects.
Having suffered the devastation of a major fire in our 1890s period home we were very fortunate to acquire the services of Michelle Farrell of MHF architects. While we were devastated by the fire it was invaluable to have someone with Michelle‘s expertise to guide us through the rebuild, design, modernisation, upgrade and building contract to rebuild our home, all of which was undertaken with great patience, understanding and attention to detail.
To say we are delighted with the end result is an understatement as out of this tragedy Michelle worked to design a most desirable, warm, comfortable home while retaining all it’s wonderful period features. We would highly recommend her for her architectural expertise, advice and management skills.
Michelle listened to our ideas and incorporated them in her final design. She was always re-assuring when we encountered difficulties. She is very careful, competent and always demands a high standard of workmanship. Generous with her advice, even after job completion and we appreciate that. We now have a beautiful light-filled extension which is comfortable, homely and a most relaxing space
We contracted MHF Architects for designing and project managing an extension to our house. We found them to be a perfect match, at the start they listened carefully to what we wanted and created a design to exactly fit in with our life style and requirements. At all stages during the project, they were immediately available to answer questions or deal with any concerns that arose. On the project management side, no unexpected costs arose and the works finished on time. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
We asked Michelle from MHF Architects to oversee the building of an extension to the side of our house. We found Michelle easy to work with, very practical, helpful and very efficient. She was easy to contact and responded straight away to any query or request. It was a great comfort to us to have her involved in the project and we are very happy with the outcome.
Michelle did a fantastic job of designing and managing the building of our new Church Building in Banchory. She understood our requirements and translated them into a great design which was delivered on time and within budget. Great attention to detail! I would not hesitate to recommend Michelle for any Architectural Project from a small extension through to a large new Church Building!
We were main contractors on the New Church at Hill of Banchory, the Design team and the Contractor worked closely as a team resulting in early delivery of the project, we would be delighted to work with Michelle in the future and wish here every success.
Michelle is extremely well organised and plans her work load extremely well. She therefore worked very efficiently and despite some difficult deadlines, always completed the work on time and to a high standard. She developed her design skills while with us and produced a number of exciting and innovative designs. She is a good team player and very able at coordinating members of the design team, ensuring that they were completing their work efficiently and that all structure and environmental services were well coordinated.
I have known Michelle professionally for over three years and have worked with her on a number of projects including; Respite Care Home in Bishopbriggs, Village Centre in East Kilbride, Stirling Orthodontics in Stirling and Entrance Porch and Canopies to Multi Storey Housing Stock in Glasgow for the Glasgow Housing Association.I have found her competent and reliable. She is an architect who has appreciation of detail and its interface with other disciplines. I would have no hesitation in recommending her for further projects.
MHF Architects were the architects on our church build in 2010 which was a community project costing circa £2m. We are pleased to provide this reference based on our experience of the time Michelle Farrell was involved with the project. Michelle exhibited qualities of professionalism and commitment along with a strong team spirit during the project. From our experience we have a high regard for Michelle Farrell.
Thank you for all your help, support and advise with the addition to our home. It’s truly amazing.
