Our Ethos

Putting the human at the heart of spatial design

Residential Architectural Services

Elevating spaces with innovative architecture services.

Architectural Design Studio

Putting human needs core and central to designing spaces and experiences.

We began life as The Design Lab and DMG Architects 
but over time our work has evolved, culminating in spatial flow + mindful architecture.

We now see the transformative power that alternative systems and models including Lean and psychology bring to the process of design, so a rebrand to Dwellbeing reflects what we do best; designing homes and spaces that are an organised and calming a refuge to recharge and enjoy.

Although we are based in Waterford, we spend a lot of time travelling around Ireland, seeing clients in Dublin, Kildare, Kilkenny, and many other counties in Ireland.

What our customers say about working with Dwellbeing

This is the second project we have worked with Ronan and Karen, one huge project(ongoing and very happy with progress) and one smaller project which has been so pleasurable. Pleasurable is not the way you would usually describe anything to do with design and building work, but thats what Karen and Ronan bring to the table, take the complications, the uncertainty and give a level of simplicity to a project whilst getting insight from you to help deliver the project in the way cant describe but can see in your head . Everybody has enough going on in their life without worrying about a lack of knowledge about renovating/building/designing that you might do once or twice in your life. I have found their collaborative approach refreshing after kissing some frogs in the past. I love the fact that you can be as hands on or off as you need to and you can rest assured the job will be done. I cannot recommend the team enough. I will follow on with a more specific review once our huge project is finished. Thanks Ronan and Karen.

Karen and Ronan have been fantastic to work with. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing architect and design team. They have been so patient and understanding to us during the long awaited time of us finally finding our dream location. They have made our dream home come true on paper and listened to everything we wanted and also gave fantastic advice along the way. They’ve been great friends and mentors to us both, with being a young couple starting off and not knowing much about the whole process of starting a home from scratch. We couldn’t highly recommend them enough! Location- Waterford Google Verified

I was delighted with the whole process including the initial phone call and Karen & Ronan’s subsequent visit to my home. They listened attentively to my queries and plans, looked at the “flow of the house” and followed up with a detailed report and plan. Their passion and enthusiasm was infectious. I would highly recommend them Location Co.Cork Google Verified

It was a pleasure to work with Karen and Ronan. They took genuine interest in the problems we were facing with our house. They spent time talking through the areas of the house that were causing issues and worked to solve them alongside me. I’ve neurodiverse children and for the first time I felt that I was talking to people who really understood what our pinch points were and knew how to help me solve them. I couldn’t recommend Karen and Ronan highly enough Location Dublin Google Verified

I had spent years looking for a place to buy – I never thought I would build (no interest in construction) but when a site came along I thought why not. I approached Karen & Ronan with the very basic idea of wanting to build a house and they worked with me questioning/listening/advising to take me from a basic idea to a home. I felt like I was listened to and part of the process, the driver of the journey not just a passenger. I felt like I got a house designed for me, my needs and wants. From the moment I moved in it felt like my home, somewhere I was comfortable and safe. Location South Tipperary          Google Verified

We commissioned Karen and Ronan to work with us on an extension and external revamp on our home this year. Their professionalism, constant open communication and vigilance during this job enabled us to take a back seat as such and continue with our own lives. We can highly recommend Ronan, Karen and their team. It was a pleasure working with them. Location Waterford

Pleasure to work with. No detail too small. Got us exactly what we wanted and more. Would highly recommend Ronan and Karen. Professional and friendly service. Quality results.

I was very happy with Ronan’s architectural services which covered all phases of my extension and renovation work, including design, tendering and construction. Ronan was particularly helpful at the design stage, providing good ideas and challenging some of mine. It was also great to have detailed tender documents, and assistance in choosing the right builder.
