  • 11th & 12th May 2013: RIAI Simon Open Door 2013

    Tara is delighted to be taking part again this year in the annual RIAI Simon Open Event from Dun Laoghaire where for €50 you will receive an hour long consultation with Tara Cooke, (a certified RIAI architect), who will give you advice on a range of issues on how to improve your home and add value.

    In this event RIAI Architects offer their time and expertise to the members of the public for free, so every cent of your €50 will go to the Simon Community to help tackle homelessness. The Simon Communities throughout Ireland provide the best possible care, accommodation and support for people experiencing homelessness and those at risk. Together, with people who are homeless, Simon tackles the root causes, promotes innovative responses and urges the government to fulfill their commitments.

    Since 2005, the Simon Open Door initiative has been a permanent fixture in the calendar of RIAI Architects who, on this weekend offer their time and expertise to members of the public.
    Tara is really looking forward to meeting everyone and discussing ideas. Please note places are limited and booking is essential. To book an appointment with Tara, please click here

    To facilitate discussion it helps a lot if you can bring photographs, an estate agents brochure or an Ordnance Survey map if you have them.
