Patricia Mangan of Studio M has a remarkable ability to liaise successfully between the contractor and the client. Her architectural and design in put is top notch. We were extremely pleased with her work & recommended her to friends, who are also very happy with their extension.
Can't recommend Patricia highly enough: she has super ideas and yet is still flexible. She has a vision for a project and works to an exemplary standard of professionalism. She was great to work with - consultative, creative, reliable - a real guiding partner in the project.
When she made her site visits to meet the builder, it was clear that she knew her stuff and was 'the boss'! But, the highest compliment I can pay her is that just over two years later, the ideas she had - for places to store books; for cubbyholes and clever hacks are still a dream - thanks to her, ours is now a fantastic house in which to live...and Patricia helped make all we wanted possible!
I would definitely recommend her without a second's hesitation - and that's how we heard about Patricia: a friend (of ours) gave her a similar rave review and she deserved it.

D Square House
“After living abroad for a number of years we were very excited about the prospects of settling down in D Square. We just needed to create the right space that suited our family which we feel Patricia really delivered on.
It was important for us to retain as much of the character and charm of the house, while servicing the needs of a young family. Light was hugely important to us too, especially in our north west facing kitchen. The double height ceilings make the space feel bright and airy. Even though we used hard materials including polished concrete on the floors the space feels homely and warm whilst hitting the clean industrial look we were looking for.
Patricia was a dream to work with. While very open to our ideas she went above and beyond to improve on them and brought some great views & experience that were fantastic. We have so many favourite spots throughout the house we honestly cannot just choose one!
We adore our new home. The kids love all the space to run amuck while we love to just sit in the grand surrounding of our new living room looking out on the park. We feel truly lucky to have such a great home and thank our Architect for giving it to us.”

“We’re delighted with the new open plan kitchen and the way it so naturally connects to the rest of the house. It has grown into a great family home, with the new kitchen being the new heart of the house. It has exceeded our expectations.”
“We’re 16 months in it now and there isn’t one thing I’d change or one thing that I think we’ve missed.”
