Working with Clients

“The truth is, we love to design “anything”. Whether it is a 30 story high rise, a corporate office or a kitchen remodel, we love it all. Working with clients on the smallest details to see their project dreams come true is a joy. Developing close relationships with our clients is very important to us so we can really understand what they are looking to achieve. It is always a collaborative effort for us to work together to create the most beautiful, functional, cost effective result. We enjoy doing both the building structure and the interiors, creating a cohesive design from the outside in.

How to Make the Process Easy and Enjoyable

Walking through a building with the client as it is being constructed; going over every detail so the client understands fully what is being built is one of our top goals. We are accessible; we want to be there with you for every step of your project. If you have questions, concerns, or fears, call, email, or text us so we can keep an open communication line. Our job is to make the process easy and enjoyable for you and to be there on the final walk through to see your smile at the completed project.

Design, Style and Experience

Besides living and working in North County San Diego, we have lived and worked in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto, enjoying some of the most beautiful urban cities in Canada. Through our travels and living in a variety of different environments, we have really developed a broad sense of design and style. It is this, along with having degrees in Environmental Studies and a Master of Architecture coupled with over 25  years’ experience working in the Architectural field that we bring to our clients.

Travel and Family

Beyond design, we enjoy spending time with our families. We enjoy travel, and over the years have traveled to England, Scotland, Netherlands, France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Italy, Greece, Mexico, Dominican Republic and many parts of the United States and Canada. We are originally from Canada and moved down here a number of years ago and enjoy living and working in the San Diego Area.
