Do I need architect?
Per other thread adding small 20sqm extension to back of house - extending the kitchen. So knocking back wall and pushing it back 3-4m with new roof and 3velux windows. I know exactly what I want other than some uncertainty over roof and min pitch that I need guidance on. I don’t need planning permission.
A lot of people telling me I don’t need an architect just someone to draw up plans and an engineer to certify everything as we go along.
Overall cost will be about €50k or so.
Any advice?

Even if you did get an architect, you would still need to use an engineer to get everything signed off. So, no, you don't need an architect.
