ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

Our ability to provide architectural services is largely derived from the partnerships that we foster with our clients. We believe in customizing the work program for each project, while maintaining a hands-on approach throughout the design process, that involves architects, engineers, planners, designers and project managers. We can deliver a wide breadth of architectural services independently or as part of comprehensive program.

INTERIOR DESIGN

Interior design requires instinct, intelligence, and experience in planning and functional design. Exceptional design reinforces a building’s architectural visions and results in spaces with purpose, that enhance the overall experience. Integrating materials, colour, lighting, data, communications, HVAC and furniture results in a unified and complete solution. This is the hallmark of our interior design philosophy: our inclusive, fullservice approach and the desire to create complete solutions.
