Our scope includes new homes, additions, retrofits, commercial buildings and interiors, retail interiors and facades, and adaptive re-use projects within a 100km radius of our office. At the forefront of modern design culture in Waterloo Region, we can help you move beyond assumptions to achieve better, different solutions to your design problems. We are fully qualified to provide LEED consulting for new buildings and retrofits, and often join contractor teams to help work through the complexities of LEED certified builds. We have also worked on Passive House standard designs and are closing in on certification in 2017. Our home base is Kitchener Waterloo, and we regularly take on work in Cambridge, Guelph, London, Brantford, Hamilton, Durham area, and points West and North.
Our clients want to create spaces which are modern, beautiful, functional, and economical, while reducing energy usage and improving work and life environments. We strive for candor and objectivity, using advanced design thinking to solve your problems. We don’t preach, we listen and collaborate to help your space realize its full potential. We also help you do more with less, and if you are looking at a single family house greater than 5000sf, we’re probably not interested.
You can hire us for anything from minimal to full architectural services. You might want an exploration of opportunities, in the form of a feasibility study or sketch studies of a potential project. We also provide full traditional architectural services, involving schematic design, detailed design and specifications, permit and construction drawings, and contract administration and oversight. We will meet with you to discuss your needs, and provide a fee proposal which is tailored to your project, budget, and timelines.
