David came out to our house and measured it up and took photos and began planning our renovations. We had a long sitting room dining room and a small kitchen. David came back with six different plans for making the best use of our space. His plans were so unique and clever. We loved all of the ideas but the one we chose worked best for our family situation. He came to a number of meetings with us in our home to help work through each of the plans. He drew up a plan to close off the sitting room as a single room and then moved the kitchen into where the dining room was and made a den where the old kitchen was. The kitchen and den is all open plan. He put so many different clever storage places in each of the rooms and made use of every corner in the rooms. He sent the plans to a number of kitchen shops who then drew up various plans for our kitchen. He then sent a number of builders out to price the job. The builder we went with was absolutely amazing and David Came to check on the job while it was being donee David was amazing at discussing every stage of the work, making small changes as he saw fit. I can not recommend David enough, our house is absolutely amazing now. More...

We hired David following a recommendation from my best friend who has worked professionally with David for many years. She assured us he was the best person for the job and she was absolutely right. David was professional and patient with us through all stages of our extension. We had a vague idea of what we wanted and David was brilliant at filling in the blanks and guiding us through all the decisions that needed to be made. David was available to us at all stages of the build and provided essential input before and during the process. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and my husband and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. More...

David Manigo was recommended by a neighbour and he exceeded all our expectations. He came up with a brilliant design which maximizes the small space we had to extend. We completely gutted the old house and moved the stairs and some walls and extended to the side 2 stories and 1 story to the back. The light and feeling of space is more then we could have hoped for. His enthusiasm throughout the project was contagious and he was always available and happy to take our calls or call out when needed. He was unbelievably easy to work with and had contacts that were always reliable. I couldn't recommend him enough. More...

David from Hausman is a personal friend who I have known all my life. Naturally it made sense to approach him when I started thinking about building an extension to the back of our house and converting our attic. We had an idea how we wanted the extension to look but it wasn't straight forward and it required a lot of technical expertise. It was incredible to see David 'go to work' on the design and understand absolutely everything about our wishes & requirements. David was able to advise us on how some of the elements that we wanted could be tweaked to improve the design and it was clear that his extensive experience was invaluable.
When we agreed on the size and design of the extension we faced a tricky planning application for the whole project. Once again, David's intricate knowledge of planning rules and regulations gave us huge confidence that our wishes could become a reality. We weren't disappointed.
David was then also able to recommend a building contractor who he uses and an engineer and it made so much sense to move forward with this recommendation. As with any build, slight adjustments had to be made along the way. But, because of their working relationship, these were agreed very rapidly and allowed the whole project to keep moving. When it came to finishes, inside and out, there were a few occasions where we, as a couple, could not come up with a solution we were happy with. Again, David came to the fore with fantastic ideas and solutions and even photos of where they had already been applied which really helped sell the solution to us.
I would highly recommend David and Hausman to anyone looking to improve their living space. His ideas have given us a whole new living area and his attention to detail and recommendations throughout the whole process meant that we had an extremely smooth experience from start to finish. We absolutely love our home now

We hired David in 2018 to complete plans and over see the renovation of our home. We had a dormer bungalow which we wanted to renovate to allow for 3 bed rooms upstairs and a kitchen dinning renovation.
From point of consultation David offered us a wealth of knowledge and understanding. He also overseen the project to ensure it was completed to the necessary building standards and that we were happy with the final result.
We would highly recommend David.

I would highly recommend David. He provided such high-quality work in designing our home renovation. Our project was a kitchen extension in a three bedroom, mid-terrace home in Dublin. We approached David with an idea, and not only did he deliver on our list of expectations, he gave us so much more. We could not have imagined we could gain so much from a relatively small space, but David’s plan maximised every square inch of the room, making the most of space, light and storage.
From the beginning of the design process, David was insightful and professional and offered creative solutions to all of our requests. He was always reachable by phone and was enthusiastic for the project at all times.
David is both passionate and professional in his work and excels in his field. His vision realised has enhanced the way in which we live as a family.

Engaged Hausman on the refurbishment of our house which was stuck in a 1980s time warp, avocado bathroom suites and all. We had lots of ideas about what we wanted to do, but needed someone to distil them in to a coherent plan that could be submitted to builders for tender. As well as taking all our ideas and incorporating them in to a set of comprehensive drawings, David also made suggestions and discussed alternatives with us. One in particular was something we hadn’t even contemplated, which is now our favourite part of our “new” house. David got us our three quotes and because they were based on the drawings and tender document he produced, we were confident that there wasn’t going to be major drift in the price over the course of the project. As it was a refurbishment rather than a new build, inevitably a few unforeseen issues arose. When they did, I found David to be very responsive, coming up with solutions quickly which kept everything on track. Undertaking a refurbishment of your entire home is intense, but it was far less stressful than it could have been, because both David and the builder he recommended were great to deal with and were really committed to getting us the quality of finish we were looking for. Really happy with the result and very happy to recommend David based on our experience. More...

We hired David on a recommendation from a friend who was immensely happy with a job David did for her a few years ago. From day one David was such a pleasure to deal with. He listened to all of our requirements which even at the time we were very confused about. He came back with numerous options but one plan in particular that encapsulated perfectly the space we wanted to create and that was it. Every step of the planning process he was extremely patient and helpful. When we couldn’t vision certain aspects he went above and beyond to show us exactly how things would look. So much so that we decided to continue on with David through the tender process! Throughout the build he checked in to ensure everything was to plan and was there to answer any questions we had any time. Our house is north-facing so extremely dark, dreary at the back and closed off. It’s now is open, airy and so so bright! David incorporated clever storage ideas and has a great attention to detail. Anyone who visits our home cannot picture the way it was before which is the mark of a job very well done. More...

I could not recommend David highly enough. He was extremely professional with the patience of a saint. No task was too taxing for him in which he went above and beyond to make sure we were happy at every stage. We were initially apprehensive about hiring an architect but looking back we could not have done it without him. He has made our old house into a home and cannot thank him enough. More...

We hired David to do our single story extension on our 3 bedroom house. Right from the start David provided over and above the standard service. He listened to our ideas and worked with us to come up with initial designs. Really understanding my style. Once we agreed on designs I brought on board a builder and David was keen to meet with him and go through the plan to ensure everyone was on board with the idea and plan. Final plans agreed and work started and David was hands on, he visited the site a number of times to check in that all was to plan. Working with. Holder and engineer. He was on hand to discuss any potential options that arose during the building. I was even able to ask him design ideas for finishing touches. He had great contacts for other suppliers and was only too happy to help get me quotes where needed or give advise on costs or budget.
The extension was finished on time and pretty much on budget. David was an absolute pleasure to work with. Nothing was ever to much trouble and importantly he listened to what I wanted. I now have my dream extension thanks to both David and the builder mark. I could not recommend him more highly.

I asked David to advise how I might reconfigure my bathroom to make space for a shower, but without losing the integrity of the room. With what appeared to be the glance of an eye and a flick of his measuring tape, David came up with a solution and what resulted was no less than transformational. If you're looking for a creative flair, attention to detail, care of surroundings and someone who listens to ensure you feel comfortable with what is planned, I recommend Hausman wholeheartedly.

We hired David when we bought an old extended cottage in need of a full renovation and lots of tlc. David was a pleasure to work with, he brought some very good ideas to the table in terms of the overall design and had great input on the small details as well. His expertise and know-how helped the completion of the project immensely and his experience in the field meant he knew where to source finishing materials and what decisions to take when issues inevitably arised.

David really helped in our journey towards understanding what we wanted and needed. He simplified the paperwork and processes around planning and applications, etc, and allowed us to think and explore on different design decisions with him.
Ultimately, working with him was as educational as it was rewarding, and every element of our new home is ideal, practical, warm, bright and as we need it for the rest of our family. We couldn't be happier.

David designed a two story extension for our mid terrace home. He also redesigned the internal layout of the house.

We felt David was full of ideas and had no problem changing plans when required if our ideas changed. We could contact him at any time if we had any questions about the build, from door types to recommendations on where to get air vents.

As we needed planning permission he made sure that everything was done quickly which made everything very easy on us.

I would have no problem recommending David.

David provided plans for our kitchen extension and attic conversion in an Edwardian semi-detached house in Glasnevin. It took us a long time to make up our minds about certain features of the design and we tore up the plans completely at one stage and started again from scratch. David was very patient throughout the 18-month planning process.

It didn't end there. David helped us enormously through the tender stage, with selecting the builder and negotiations with the builder.

No detail was too small to be included and there were many many revisions.

He tracked the builder's progress throughout the job with regular visits to the site and especially through critical phases such as fitting the windows. He kept the builder on-track for us. He recommended good auxiliary contractors, painters, suppliers, etc

And finally his price was exceptionally reasonable. I have work colleagues who had similar projects done and their architects were twice as expensive and nowhere near as helpful and professional.

Highly recommended.

On the recommendation of a friend we hired David Manigo of Hausman Architectural Services to draw up plans for a very old house we had bought that needed a complete overhaul from floor to roof and everything in between!

David listened to what we wanted and needed and drew up plans that gave us exactly what we had hoped for and more. He stayed close to us and the builders throughout the whole build and the builders were also extremely complimentary of him. We found David to be extremely knowledgeable with practical, creative solutions and a very quick response time. Personally he is really pleasant and easy to deal with and we would highly recommend him.

David worked on our house renovation from Jan-Jul 2016. We found him to be personable, accessible, opinionated (in a good way) and committed to delivering a project that works well and is beautiful.

During the design of our house, David worked through three iterations of drawings until he and we agreed a plan. David gained a good understanding of what we needed and incorporated our needs into the plans. David helped us to recruit a very good builder. During the build it was invaluable having David around to ensure building was being done in accordance with national safety standards but also to negotiate with the builder how certain work should be done e.g. David insisted on RSJs being recessed, had strong opinions on the height of the extension, and the positioning of a roof light to achieve maximum light and aesthetic appeal. David was a great help in telling us where to source materials in particular the door but also floors, the kitchen and bathroom furniture. He renovates houses all the time so if you know what you want, he can tell you where to get it.

David is really interested in producing beautiful work so he's a great person to have in your corner and is always a pleasure to deal with. We recommend highly.
