Room to Improve

Architect Dermot Bannon is back with another round of innovative and contemporary designs for homeowners looking to make the most of their houses. With budgets tighter and clients’ expectations even higher, Dermot will be obliged to expand his role as perfectionist designer to include mediation, builder-wrangling and some extremely delicate diplomacy. This year Room to Improve welcomes new quantity surveyor Lisa O’Brien, keeping an eye on Dermot’s more elaborate designs and somehow making the impossible feasible.
