ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

We are proud to offer you our range of core architectural services, including feasibility studies, architectural programming and problem-solving, conceptual development, schematic and design development, and construction documentation. These are some of the traditional architectural services we proudly offer to create the highest calibre of design possibilities for your project within your target budget and schedule.

Our licensed architects and experts in building technologies will listen and work with you in order to translate your dream project into the best possible reality. 

LIASON WITH GOVERNMENT AUTHORITIES

One of the delicate stages in any architectural project is the interface with local authorities that have jurisdiction over your property and project. They are mandated to execute the bylaws that, if not diligently researched, may set your project back or, worse: may render the project infeasible due to extensive restrictions.

Having been coordinating with different local agencies in many towns and regions in Ontario for more than two decades, we have the collective experience to anticipate their reactions to project applications.

CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION

We take pride in our architectural design solutions. As a result, we are as passionate as you about your project and want to see our vision transform from paper to reality. We achieve this through periodic site visits, shop drawing reviews, and communication with contractors, and we track the progress of construction in terms of schedule and adherence to design

Our licensed architects and experts will listen and work with you in order to translate your dream project into the best possible reality.

LANDSCAPE DESIGN

We can design your hard landscaping feature to complement foliage selected by your licensed landscape architect. This ensures that the hard and soft elements of your exterior are harmonious. Hard landscaping design includes driveways, patios, decks, swimming pools, outdoor kitchens and barbecue areas. Plus, it includes whatever else you want to see for your perfect outdoor experience.

INTERIOR DESIGN

While optional, our preference is to extend our core architectural services and include interior design. This ensures that we continue to provide an integrated selection of plumbing fixtures, finishes, furnishings, colour, décor and accessories. Our registered interior designers have the expertise and proper training that will assist you in the meticulous process of finalizing your choices.

CUSTOM URBAN HOMES

Starting with a connection to the neighbourhood and surrounding topography and working within the municipality’s design restrictions, we construct an initial schematic plan and 3D model. We’re happy to integrate your requirements, whether a grand fireplace, sustainability options, or a fantastic backyard, and layout your state-of-the-art bespoke house. Once the design is finished to your satisfaction, we move into the construction phase. You’ll end up with a beautiful, modern, and sophisticated home that you can be proud of.

DESIGN OPTIONS

Create your sustainable building. We will combine your ideas into one unified package and advise you on everything. Suppose you like solar panels, advanced appliances, innovative fixtures and heating systems, and the highest-quality indoor air and building shell systems. In that case, we will create the best system for you within your target budget. With years of experience in sustainable and standout design, we never forget that it all needs to come together in the perfect product for your needs. We will build it as you imagine it.

In the country, our homes are all about connecting to the outdoors.
