Launched in 2010 with a goal of bringing Sustainable, Modern, Practical, and Livable solutions to the forefront of residential design.

Our Expertise

Are we a design + build firm? No, but our team of dedicated staff will prepare everything you need to be construction ready AND help you select the right builder for your project!

We pride ourselves on the relationships we have established with over 40 builders who can deliver our custom product across Canada, parts of the USA, and the Caribbean. These builders understand, trust and appreciate our process and design expertise and, in turn, we value the construction management knowledge and coordination they bring to our clients. Our connections allow us to make recommendations based on which builders are right for the project.  Our common goal is to see our amazing projects get built, so we’re always keen to stay connected with our client, builder and sub trades through the build cycle to ensure your dream home is everything you wanted, and more.


Our Pillars
Sustainable Practices

Whether upgrading the performance of your building, assessing sun path and the use of renewable energy systems or guiding the client on material selections, we strive to provide strong residential design and a final product that supports sustainable practices to protect our environment for the future.

Modern Designs

 Our firm pushes the boundaries of modern home design for each and every individual client, and the property for which we are developing for them. We know modern, our passion is modern, and we strive to be the best in the industry when it comes to innovation in this area of residential design styling.

Practical Solutions

With well over 1500 projects under our firms’ belt over the last 12+ years in business, we can take the guesswork out of what is the best overall solution for your homes’ budget and layout, or material selection. Each and every decision along the design and planning process, as well as construction phases of your project require logical solutions. We are here to deliver those for you.

Livable Spaces

Your new home, cottage, cabin, or large scale revamp of an existing space requires livable solutions. Layouts that make sense, work for your particular families days to day needs, and inspire you in your way of living. Open concept vs a more segregated room design solution is a constant discussion with all of our clients and families, and no two live the same: we’re here to help you with that and many other decisions to maximize the livability of your space.
