“I’ve had the exceptional pleasure to work with Robert Bourke Architects on a very special and sentimental project – a stunning new house on a Dundrum site that has been in our family for almost 80 years. Robert and Anna came up with a beautiful modern home design that is bright and comfortable, and surprisingly spacious, constricted by a significantly constrained budget. The team were a delight to work with at all stages of development and I look forward to one day working with them on another project.”
C. Scully, Dundrum, Dublin 14
“How to transform a house into a home, into a place that you love to be in – a place that your friends and family love to visit? These were questions that I posed to Robert and his team the first time I met him.
“From the first meeting I knew that I was being listened to. It was a learning process for me, something I thoroughly enjoyed.
“I can only say that the end result has far exceeded my expectations. I think that my house is absolutely beautiful and has allowed me to live a much fuller life. My friends and family adore it and marvel at all the design features that are more than the sum total of this welcoming, beautiful space – all made possible by the professional and thorough work of Robert and his team. Thank you.”

“Robert’s plans took us completely by surprise. They were visionary and imaginative.”

“I had a budget and had to stick to it. I retained Robert Bourke as architect. From the off he had refreshing ideas. He prepared plans and tendered for builders, with time we got a reliable builder at the right price. This is not a fairy tale! Robert’s designs worked with the house and the budget. The removal of a useless door; the realignment of the living area; turning the conservatory into a room where we could dine at Christmas; opening up the kitchen all great but the real JEWEL was in bringing light into the living area. This was achieved by putting in two interior windows. At first I was sceptical but the effect was amazing. We have light and space all year round. Nearly three years on, showing signs of living, it has retained its magic!”
S. Ryan, Dalkey, Co. Dublin
“Thank you for all your help with our home. It was difficult to visualise how “dropping the floor” would feel and look. We would never have thought of doing this ourselves. Thank you for imagining and bringing to fruition this plan. We love all the changes and everyone who comes to visit really likes it. With best wishes for the future success of RBA.”
K. Curtin, Glenageary, Co. Dublin
