Another happy client

Tetris House

We found working with Darren and the team a great experience. They listened to our needs and nailed the design, surpassing our expectations.
We found the cost of the design process very reasonable. The team worked in with the builders to overcome any design modifications we made along the way.
We would have no hesitation recommending O'Neil + Architecture to anyone looking to build a stylish new home, and will certainly use them again ourselves. Thank you so much for designing a wonderful new home for us.
