Dublin, Ireland, January, 2019 – Brennan | Furlong Architects & Urban Planners has won “Best Of Design” on Houzz®, the leading platform for home renovation and design. The Award Winning Architectural Practice was chosen by the more than 40 million monthly unique users that comprise the Houzz community from among more than 2.1 million active home building, renovating and design industry professionals.
The Best Of Houzz is awarded annually in three categories: Design, Customer Service and Photography. Design award winners’ work was the most popular among the more than 40 million monthly users on Houzz. Customer Service honours are based on several factors, including the number and quality of client reviews a professional received in 2018. Architecture and interior design photographers whose images were most popular are recognised with the Photography award.
A “Best Of Houzz 2019” badge will appear on winners’ profiles, as a sign of their commitment to excellence. These badges help homeowners identify popular and top-rated home professionals in every metro area on Houzz.
“As a relatively young company we’re delighted to have received a Best of Design Award through Houzz and it’s community. It’s a testament to the standard of work being produced by our team, for our clients, and we endeavor to continue to developed designs that we believe improve our built environment and our daily lives for individuals, families & communities.”
"Best of Houzz is a true badge of honor as it is awarded by our community of homeowners, those who are hiring design, renovation and other home improvement professionals for their projects,” said Marcus Hartwall, Managing Director of Houzz UK and Ireland. “We are excited to celebrate the 2019 winners chosen by our community as their favorites for home design and customer experience, and to highlight those winners on the Houzz website and app."
As a design led practice we create study models of many of our projects. The physical act of making the model helps us understand and develop the designs while focusing our approach. They also help the client to visual the concept.
The models below are of some new houses that we’re currently working on. One is a mews house in Clontarf and the other is a house on Howth Summit.
Our project on the Clontarf Seafront, at the western end of 6 Protected Structures comprising the beautiful Warrenpoint Terrace (1847) has reached Practical Completion, having started life on the drawing-board in 2014. We have really enjoyed the journey - only landscaping and some furnishing remain to turn it into a home for our clients.

Wow! Can you believe it's that time of year already?
Well if you think the last year went by quickly, it's nothing compared to how fast the bookings for the Simon Open Door will go. Bookings are now live at www.simonopendoor.ie
The initiative raised €124,000 last year, with approx €700,000 raised nationally since the initiative began. A great cause facilitated by the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland and we're delighted to be involved again this year.
Book your 1 hour consultation today with a local RIAI registered Architect, in exchange for a €90 donation to the Simon Communities of Ireland. But be quick. When they're gone, they're gone!
