Custom Homes and Renovations


We pride ourselves on our ability to lead clients through every stage of their project, from planning & pre-design, through the entire design phase, and into the permit & construction document phase. We offer a wide range of construction phase services to navigate right through until occupancy and beyond.

We take on projects of all sizes; from small scale renovations and additions, to single family neighbourhood developments and even into multi-family dwellings.

The Best Laid Plans


Thorough planning for a major new construction or renovation project is the key to success.  From initial property acquisition and feasibility studies, to site, climate and environmental analysis, we assess every detail to ensure the client’s project requirements can be met.  We feel it paramount to establish a clear vision and direction for the project with respect to scope, budget, timing and execution before the design work commences.  From luxury down to the most modest of builds, our methodology and goal remains the same: to assist clients meet their project needs, express their individual styles and values, stay within their project budget, and meet the project milestones every step of the way.



We approach the design process as a collaborative, iterative exercise.  We enjoy working with clients to harness their vision and ideas, prioritize their ‘needs’ and the ‘wants’ and assemble a custom home or renovation design that both excites and fulfills.

Utilizing the most advanced 3D modelling and visualization software on the market, our ability to present clients with the visual tools and experience they need to appreciate even the most intimate of design details translates into a smooth stress-free construction phase with no surprises.  The ability to consider multiple design options and variations throughout the design process gives the client great satisfaction moving forward to construction.

It's All in The Details


Before we were great designers, we were builders, who appreciate that every great design needs to be well thought out and described from a construction standpoint.  We take great pride in our construction document presentation, clarity and technical excellence. We incorporate cutting edge building technology, environmental stewardship, and fundamental durability considerations into every design.  Great documents make for smooth permit turnarounds, limit construction changes, and keeps projects moving forward on time.

Flexible Support


We are here to act as your agent whenever you may need.  Whether Vancouver Island is not yet your home, or the demands of your busy life are such that a constant presence during your build is not feasible, rest assured; we have you covered.   From simple field review, to full construction contract administration services,  we will tailor our construction phase services to suit your needs.
