"Triibox Studio did an amazing job with the interior design of our house. Greg was a pleasure to work with and had a lot of great ideas for our home. He helped us with decisions from lighting, to kitchen design, flooring, doors and just about everything in between. I was particularly impressed with his ability and knack to pick out the colors throughout the house and make it all come together. Our house turned out great and Triibox Studio had a large part in that. Very reasonably priced also."

Synthesis Design Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Abbotsford, BC
"We worked with the team at Synthesis Design and (now 2 1/2 years later) we are (still) thouroughly happy with their work. In fact, we consider them to be part of our family! When we went into this project we knew nothing about design, construction, zoning, or anything... we told them "we're either going to be your best clients or your worst, because we don't know what we don't know"... Well they certainly helped us through it incredibly well! Not only did they do a great job (many of the photos they posted here are of our home), but we had a blast working with them too! Our home is very important to us.. and take note the word... HOME... that's what Synthesis built for us... our family, our values, our lives were worked into this home in so many wonderful ways! I can't say I would ever use them again... because they did such a fantastic job this time around that we are NEVER moving. We love our home and we love Synthesis Design. C, L, K, O, K, B, everyone... you know who I'm talking about! :) !!! Don`t even THINK, hire them straight away!!!"

How do I find the best Abbotsford architect for my home design project?


It is best to hire a home architect who will be involved in all phases of the design process, from the initial concept to the completed construction. The architect is often the first person you will hire for your project. If necessary, they might also help you select and hire British Columbia subcontractors, which can include the builders, engineers and landscaper. Interior architects are also involved in negotiating contracts for all involved participants. It is for these reasons that it is extremely important for you to have a good relationship with the Abbotsford residential architect you hire. He or she can be the tie-breaking vote between you and the general contractor and can be your biggest advocate during the construction process. Different architecture firms in Abbotsford, BC provide different services, so the scope of the work can span from pre-design environmental impact studies to selecting furniture and finishes, depending on what your specific needs are.

What sort of process can I expect from a residential architect?


As far as the process goes, the architecture firm or individual that you choose will start with concept drawings and finish with construction drawings and documents. Some firms even design with 3D renderings and videos, but that should not be assumed. There should be plenty of meetings between you and your building designer until you have agreed upon a design that you are completely happy with. Always keep in mind that the designer will have building codes to follow, and likely pre-existing design limitations when dealing with a remodel, so while they might not be able to execute your exact ideas they always have your safety and aesthetics in mind. One of the most important duties of a residential architect is to serve as managers and supervise most aspects of construction, as well as facilitate communication between all other contractors, so you can expect them to be present throughout the entire building process to ensure everything is executed as planned.

It is very important to hire the right professional for the job. Remember that the most well-known or established designer might not provide the best architectural services for your needs. It all comes down to the individual project. Research and ask people whose work you like for recommendations. It's important to have somewhat of an idea of the style of house architecture that you prefer, as well as the amount you would like to spend. Residential architects in Abbotsford, BC are natural problem solvers. They will assess the entire situation and help you to solve your problems too. Don't settle for a single company too early. Call and interview a few. Make sure that you feel like your personalities will mesh well and that you like their professional perspective.

Questions to ask prospective Abbotsford interior architects:


  • What is your fee structure?
  • What does the cost include?
  • Do you have professional liability insurance?
  • Can you handle my special requests (ADA, LEED etc.)?
  • What types of renderings (3D, video, illustrative) will you produce?
  • What is your experience with similar projects?
  • When do you expect to start and be finished with the project?
  • What do your services include? (It's best that the services are until construction is completed.)
  • What happens when the cost exceeds the budget?
  • Can you provide me with references?
  • Would you say your work has a defining style? (This is important in case the architect's personal style will interfere with your vision.)
  • Will you help with hiring a general contractor and subcontractors?
  • What do you estimate the cost will be?
  • What will I need to provide?
  • Are there any complications you foresee with this project?
