Specialising in the architectural design of houses, extensions, and planning permissions in Cork since 1998

Since 1998, I’ve been helping my clients unlock the potential of their homes.

I graduated from at the RTC, Cork in 1990 in Architectural Technology. I went to London, where I had, previously, worked on the buildings sites and it was here that I discovered the concept of sustainable design. Design to reduce the energy needs of a building and maximise the solar potential.

Returning to Cork, I started up Wiseman Designs Architectural Consultancy and, for over two decades now, use this concept in my design work.

I ran a highly acclaimed CPD accredited night course on ‘Sustainable Building’, in St.Johns’ Central College, Cork, for 8 successful years; creating strong connections with experts in the field of sustainable and energy efficient building

Whether it is a new build or the re-imagining of your existing home, the first step for me is to listen to you and get a thorough understanding of your aspirations and needs.

From day one, your ideas take the lead. I’ll sketch out your dreams, maximising the space, the light and energy efficiency.

My goal is to make your architectural journey smooth and enjoyable. I love bringing your visions to life, keeping you engaged throughout. This invariably leads to a better design solution.

With a network of trusted consultants and builders, we will make your project come to life.

Let us help you turn your dream into a reality.

Sustainable Building

Between 2000 and 2008, I devised, researched, and delivered a highly acclaimed CPD accredited night course on ‘Sustainable Building’. It was pioneering in the country, catering specifically to architects, building professionals and anyone wishing to build their home.
