Edel has a wonderful ability for encapsulating exactly what her clients want and crystallising their wishes into an amazingly creative construct.
She listened patiently to our needs and picked up on features we were interested in developing and adding her own wonderfully creative input, she designed for us, a beautifully proportioned, light filled home, with many stunning features.
She is client-centred, easy to work with, accessible, with a helpful eye on budgetary considerations.
She is ably assisted by her architectural technician, Anna, who also takes the client through the detailed specifications of Edel’s plans.
We are delighted we engaged Edel, as our architect and have no hesitation in recommending her to clients.

Our New Home: Our family loves the location of our home but as we grew as a family the layout of the house no longer worked. Downstairs we had 5 small bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Upstairs was dark and again partitioned into small unconnected living spaces. We agonized over how we could transform the house into a home that would meet our needs. Edel our Architect gave us the vision and courage to make the transformation. Edel spent a lot of time listening to how we wanted to live in our home and the problems we had with the existing design. The design concept she proposed to us was a dramatic change and over a number of design review meetings she convinced us to have the courage to make the change . We are now living in the transformed house close to a year and it has dramatically changed our way of life. Our teenage daughters now have their own space for privacy and study and as a family we have a light infused common space that brings us together for meals and family time. Our only regret is why didn’t we do it earlier and the reason was we did not have the vision to see the design that would work for us until we met Edel.
Overall, Edel is extremely talented, positive and personable, not afraid of a challenge if difficult situations arise and has excellent attention to detail. We are delighted to be working with Edel on our project and would have no hesitation in recommending her to another client or company
I have worked with Edel on both residential and commercial projects. Edel designed and got planning permission for my company a mixed use development in Waterford, which included a primary care centre. Edel has always produced high quality work with great skill and imagination.
I gave the job of redeveloping my holiday home in Schull to Edel, the existing house was to be demolished and a new property to be developed taking consideration to the setting and views over the fasnet lighthouse. the results were fantastic, Edel dealt took care of everything from the planners to engineers, I would have no hesitation dealing with Edel again, the drawings speak for themselves.
Ms. Regan’s work ethic is excellent, and can produce initial sketches by hand to completed working drawings. Her communication skills are excellent in any situation…[her] professionalism and attention to detail was always present.We were also impressed with her ability to take other views on board, without losing the overall concept of the project. This is rare among the Architects we deal with.Ms Regan has a very artistic element to her work, and we have recommended her as an Architect to our clients, our clients are very satisfied with her input to our projects.
Edel Regan Architects executed design and planning drawings in an efficient and timely manner. She achieved design with a good commercial mix of apartments, retail, library, and creche and consultant medical suites. The design was sensitively accomplished and met with all the planning requirements and achieved high densities for the site. Further information was required by the planning authorities and Edel Regan Architects responded extremely well to the planning department. She dealt with all the planning requirements for further information. The planners were satisfied with the scheme and awarded the project a successful grant of planning. This greatly increased the value of the land and subsequently the site was sold at a larger value than before the site had planning. I am very grateful for Edel’s diligent work in achieving such a planning result and would highly recommend her to any future developer or land owner.
