Custom Home & Cottage Design
Additions & Renovations
We have over 18 years’ experience in custom home design. We’ve designed custom homes for clients across the country and have assembled an impressive portfolio of homes, additions, and renovations. Residential design is a process and it involves constant communication between the client and designer. We’re here to share past experiences and assist the client in making informed design decisions. We are focused on sustainability and consider the environment and energy efficiency in every project. We offer design-build services and are building a list of talented contractors and renovators that can successfully complete any project. We are registered with the Ontario Government with a BCIN number.

Our approach to commercial interior design is centred on the client. We work closely with the client and listen to their needs and the needs of their staff to develop spaces that reflect their company’s core goals and vision, but also, create functional spaces that perform efficiently. We offer design-build services and can take care of the entire project from feasibility through design to construction and to occupancy. Let us look after each step while you focus on your business. We encourage clients to consider long term space requirements and growth needs and develop finish design schemes that are durable, sustainable, and beautiful. The goal is always to provide a comfortable and efficient workspace that employees want to get up in the morning and spend their days in. We’re registered with the Interior Designer’s of Canada as registered Interior Designers.

We’ve worked directly with builders and developers in British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan to produce production home plans and provide what we call builder services that are tailored to the home builder. We can offer marketing material design and layout, provide an optimization report to determine efficiencies for building materials, and provide energy modelling services to assist in achieving sustainability goals. We have developed a library of advanced installation details based on best practices in the industry that we include on our plans.

We’ve always been proponents of alternate uses of old buildings and the preservation of the history and craftsmanship that they exhibit. We’ve completed hands-on heritage renovation projects and assisted others in realizing the beauty of their buildings, many times hidden behind layers of “enhancements”. We’ve led workshops through the National Trust on restoration and preservation experiences and how to approach the daunting task of assisting building owners in visioning and implementing the restorations of their heritage properties. From feasibility, to conceptual design, to working drawings to project management and construction, we can help restore or adaptively re-use heritage buildings.
