Victoria, George… and Des


Victoria, George… and Des

From architect to builder and back again, Des Ewing knows luxury homes inside out. He and his practice now create beautiful Victorian and Georgian-style – and contemporary – high-end real estate.


Des Ewing is an award-winning chartered architect who loves to design beautiful houses. After working for five years in a private practice he left to become a builder. During this time he project managed, built and laboured full time on three large, bespoke houses.


As Des explains, “Building a new house can be incredibly stressful for a family, especially when things don’t always go to plan. Thankfully my building experience has helped me through some pretty tight situations.” As he was responsible for ordering every last screw and ensuring that the homes were delivered and fitted properly, it would be true to say that he knows houses inside out.


Des is now principle of his own practise – Des Ewing Residential Architects – which specialises in the design and creation of luxury homes. The team of residential architects, designers and technicians produce award-winning homes that their clients love to live in, created using skilled design, sustainable detailing and an unparalleled knowledge of superior home building.


His distinctive contemporary, classical style has proved popular with discerning clients, while he and his team have built up a vast knowledge and experience of building and renovating luxury residential properties to the highest standard of detailed design and finish.


“By default, I have become somewhat of an expert in big new builds that have a Victorian or Georgian exterior,” commented Des.


“I’m certainly not complaining – I love what I do. I think most architects are drawn to the new; after all, it’s what our business is all about.”


The practice provides a full and dedicated service starting from outline proposals, design, planning permission, detailed design to site management and final completion of your project. A wider team of specialists are available to deal with all possible aspects of the new home.


Working from its head office in Holywood, Co. Down, with a field office in Mayfair, Des Ewing Residential Architects deliver high-end properties across the UK and Ireland.
