Working with Matt designing our dream home is a wonderful experience. We allowed time for him to make changes in his design before construction begins and he has been terrific in incorporating our ideas with his. It is not always easy having someone interpret your verbal description to drawings but Matt got it right from the beginning. He is great at solving layout problems and his innovating design skills for our modern style house are excellent. Matt has made the project easy and fun and I highly recommend him to anyone thinking of having design work done.

I thought I would add a review to JWT Architecture and James Tuer based on some questions another person emailed me, with regards to working with James. TL;DNR version: Yes, James is great to work with. 1. Would you work with James again? We worked with James twice, once on our ski house at in the interior of BC, and then again to build our house in Vancouver. We probably won’t be building anything more for a while, but if we did we would certainly consider working with him again. 2. Did he respect your budget? Did you end up going over budget or meet your goals? Yes. First of all he was considerably less expensive than another architect we tried to work with. Then he was much more responsive in terms of trying to get us to our budget amount. No architect is perfect in this area, it is important to get a builder involved and a costing estimate up and running as soon as possible. Budgets are hard. 3. Did he listen well to your needs? Yes. He is very personable and we had a good rapport. He responded well to feedback and is very solutions oriented. 4. When you were confused or stumped on elements of your house design did he make it easy to solve the issues and if so were you happy with his solutions? James is very creative. Yes. We love the houses that he created for us. 5. Now that you have been in your home for a while are you happy with it or would you have done things differently? It is always possible to think of new solutions once you live in a place for a while, but overall, we were very happy with both the houses he designed for us. 6. Did your builder have any issues with the plans that James drew up? Not on our house in Vancouver. When we did our house at the ski area, the builder was not experienced at custom homes, so he was little baffled by the scope and complexity of what James presented him. This was the builders fault, not James’s. Short summary, you need a good builder. A good builder shouldn’t have a problem with the plans, because James is thorough and detailed. 7. If so did the drawings James prepare lead to any unnecessary complications or expenses for the builder to translate into reality for you? I was on site almost daily in the construction period of our new house. (not the Sun Peaks one though). I talked to all the framers, electricians, plumbers and other sub contractors regularly. The only time I heard the framers grumble was about a non-square aspect of our laneway house. One wall was off angle by 5 degrees. In retrospect, I would have gone with a square instead. It wasn’t a big deal, for the framers in the end, and my wife likes the way it expands the space in the laneway. 8. Do you feel that he captured the best possible elements of your lot? I.e. views, daylight, privacy etc… Yes, James, probably because of his landscape architecture experience, is very aware of site placement, lines of sight, what you are seeing out the windows, bringing light into the house etc. We love the spaces and views he created with his design. Most people who visit our house are very impressed with the feel of it.

Having built several homes before, we had our share of experiences with builders. But what we got was above and beyond. The amount of pre-planning, attention to details, and the one on one service in choosing all of the elements of the interior and exterior was impressive. Not only has Dragon Den Dev. Built our dream home, we also have an excellent friend to invest with.

I've been working with Craig to re-design an older home. Having come in with initial ideas of our own, he not only provided drawings based on those, but proposed an alternative that we had not considered that was much bolder and more exciting, likely to also be more profitable. He was then absolutely willing to work with either of our choices, which turned out to be his own design. During the process he has been consistently positive, flexible and open to all ideas. We've received clear communication and excellent quality designs from Craig, all done on the timeline he laid out. Very enjoyable to work with.
SGDI - Sarah Gallop Design Inc.

I am currently using Sara Gallop design for a whole house reno in British Columbia. Upon searching for a design firm who could provide architectural and interior I was immediately impressed with SGDI's fast response to my enquiry and subsequent follow up with their process and and costing model. I can't tell you how many firms are lax when it comes to follow up. I'm busy like we all are and knowing I don't have to ask twice is important to me. And I have never had to ask Sara or Stephanie twice for anything. Sara and Stephanie have redesigned the whole house. Finding useful ways to improve space and chosen colours and materials that fit my personality and my budget. In those choices where their first idea was not perfect, SDGI was fast to provide options and to keep it all tied together so I didn't go out on a limb and make any mistakes with my maverick shopping style. ONce the design was 90% and we needed to select a builder. I found two on my own and Sara then suggested a builder locally. Best Builders (real name) who have turned out to be outstanding. Together these two firms are building a home that will make the kids and I very happy for a long time. I have to say I could not be happier. SDGI is dedicated and so professional to deal with. I would recommend them to both family and friends.

Greg's design sense is excellent and process with his clients is caring and deliberate. His portfolio is testament to this. He can navigate any building jurisdiction issue, takes full inventory of clients' criteria from dream idea to a realistic budget, offers up a compelling design schematic, carefully develops the custom design with his client, and follows through with thorough structural and architectural drawings for the building authorities and builder to use. He designed my custom home and now our company works with him regularly.
Haven Design Workshop
Abbotsford, BC Architectural Drawing Professionals
Average rating: 5 out of 5 starsFebruary 2, 2015
As a general contractor I have worked with Haven Design Workshop on two separate projects. My typical experience with architects is a frustrating one. It's very common for them to design projects on paper that don't reflect how they will be done in reality. This can lead to significant change orders and lots of frustration for everyone involved. Haven has gone above and beyond to ensure that their plans accurately portray how the project will be constructed. One way they do this is by creating full 3D renderings of their projects. This allows you to see exactly what the house looks like and helps to point out any mistakes, such as roof lines that don't work and problems with the house layout in relation to the site. Both of these can have very costly fixes that are never fun to address during construction. In addition to accurate drawings their entire office staff is excellent at moving the design process along from the initial meeting through permitting. There are many details that are discussed during this stage of planning and they do an excellent job of keeping track of everything and making sure that all relevant parties are in the loop. As a whole I have been very impressed with their team and I look forward to using them on my projects for years to come.

Minh at Pinnacle Decision helped us conceptualize, plan, draw and receive approved permits from the city for our extensive home renovations. He was always willing to discuss the plans in detail, providing context for architectural and design choices in an understandable way, and worked well with the other consultants and contractors on the project. He was quick to respond to our questions, timely with city submissions and a huge support in arranging logistics for the building permit and amendments. If you want your drawings done right, ask Minh!
