Client Reviews

The professional team at Connell Architecture designed our new home in Braeburn Estate, Mandeville which is very close to completion. Sam Connell listened to our ideas as well as providing insightful suggestions and after our first meeting my wife and I were very confident that we had found the right designer. Sam Connell fulfilled our brief beyond our expectations, he also has lots of design experience and an excellent knowledge of the industry which was evident from the start with all the ideas and advice he had to offer. During the build he was always available to meet on-site or just talk on the phone to answer questions or provide ideas.

My wife and I would have no hesitations in recommending Connell Architecture to anyone, it was a very exciting and stress-free experience and we can't wait to move into our new home.
