House Designs / Home Plans Drafting / Floor plans Architects / Designers Interior Designers Permit Drawings


We are a full service residential and commercial design firm specializing in high performance and passive house designs in British Columbia, as well as renovations and new construction design to suit any style. Our Certified Residential Designer has also crafted stock residential home plans for faster development and ROI for RS zones in Vancouver and the lower mainland.

Our design philosophy is rare within the industry: we do not have a signature look or style. Instead, we prefer to look at every project and see what the Clients need and want, and design to those specifications. We do not over-design; nor do we have an ego about our designs. We only want to make sure that every Client receives a design that meets the relevant Building Code, Municipal By-Laws and their expectations.

Our Core Values: to live so that at the end of every day we can respect ourselves, each other and the work we have completed, knowing that we have done out best to ensure success.

Something to be aware of is that these days the permitting application processes for proposed renovations, new builds, and even minor land use approvals require detailed drafted plans and drawing packages. These requirements are also being updated on a very regular basis. Our permit packages meet municipal submission requirements and we work with City Staff to ensure that the City is engaged and receptive to a project as early as possible. We further increase the City’s comfort with the project by ensuring that all of the required and recommended Professionals are engaged on the project. This all results in faster permit processing times.

Choosing to work with professional contractors in Vancouver is a smart choice.

  • Project Management: Managing the various sub-trades and knowing when to bring them into the project will save time and money.
  • Trade Connections: Having access to skilled workers can be a challenge as trades in Metro Vancouver are in such high demand. Professional builders/renovators/designers come with established working relationships with the trades and sub-trades. Remember, plumbing, electrical and gas upgrades all require licensed contractors by law and are not for the DIY.
  • Contractor Rates: your professional builder, renovator, or designer will have access to contractor rates, often being able to pass on savings to you.
  • Building Permits: Every municipality has building permits that must be adhered too. More than just the cost of the permit, knowing the implications of the regulations will help to define the real cost of home building/renovation project. Keep in mind that someone looking to buy your house in the future may ask about the renovation work and want verification that the work was done to code.
  • Experienced Eye: Renovating an existing structure will inevitably turn up surprises. An experienced builder/contractor/renovator/designer will bring solutions to these inevitable challenges.

Remember, successfully custom-built homes and renovations take time, resources, and expertise to achieve the desired outcome while ensuring today’s building codes are met.
