From initial home design ideas to recommendations for trades and suppliers, our Optimise Home team has a wealth of experience you can tap into.
Employing an architect is about much more than hiring someone who will provide a great design. A good architect, who is experienced in home design, will save you money and guide you through the process every step of the way.
We realise that many people just don’t have the budget to engage an architect to see their project through to completion. To make architect’s services more accessible, we created Optimise Home. Our service is not only a cost-effective way to get architectural advice, but our proven plan gives our customers peace of mind that they are making the best possible decisions for their home with what they have to spend.

Denise is passionate about how a well designed home can have an extraordinarily positive affect on our lives. But she understood that many people planning a home renovation or extension project didn’t have the budget to engage an architect.
So in an attempt to make architects services avalible to everyone. Optimise Home was born.
Denise is an architecture and interiors columnist for the Irish Times and a contributor for HOUZZ. She is also a regular contributor to various other publications and also gives lectures on a range of topics. She was a presenter for the first series of the RTE TV show ‘The Design Doctors’ and is the creator and name behind the successful paint collection for Dulux called Signature Collection.
Aoife is from Waterford and graduated with a B.Arch in Architecture from Waterford Institute of Technology in 2014. Before joining Optimise Home in early 2016 she worked in Waterford Council as a graduate architect in their Economic Development team.
Gemma is originally from Armagh and completed her Bachelor’s degree at Queens University Belfast and Masters degree at the University of Liverpool before relocating to Dublin in 2015.
Since completing a B.A (Hons) in Interior Architecture in 2007, Orla has worked in both interior design and architecture practices in the U.K., Ireland and Australia. While in London, she gained valuable experience working with two award-winning companies who specialise in luxurious high-end residential interiors.
Johanna worked both in Italy and Estonia before joining the team and her experience ranges from residential to hospitality project and also includes branding design. Attention to detail is one of her core strengths and she is passionate about creating spaces that not only look great but that make people feel great too.
Throughout her career she has gained vast knowledge of design software allowing her to create realistic 3D visualization that will help bring the client along their design journey. Her onsite experience internationally also contributes to her ability to manage projects from concept through to completion. Grainne also has a professional diploma in Project Management from UCD.

“We're planning a new build and wanted to make sure we were on the right track with our interiors. We were thrilled with our one-hour consultation with Optimise Home as it gave us lots of practical advice on how to create the look we wanted for our new home. Everything from the perfect neutral white paint to the ideal tile to a beautiful worktop was covered.Vicki
“I worked with Optimise Home to modernise our living room, which had become tired and in need of a serious revamp. From my very first contact I knew I was in safe hands. Their ideas totally transformed the room, and to say we are beyond delighted with the end result is an understatement. I personally saved time trying to source the items myself. We now have a room that we love and are proud to bring family and friends into. Working with Optimise Home was one of the best decisions I have made.”Paula
“Our experience with Optimise Home was immensely positive and exceeded our expectations. We engaged with Optimise to reconfigure and extend our kitchen and living space. They really listened to everything we wanted from our space. It was so helpful to see our design in 3D. It meant that we could visualise how the space would work for us. Overall, we really enjoyed working with Optimise Home. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.”Jill & OwenKildare
