Featured Reviews for Architects and Building Designers in Etobicoke, ON
BLDG Workshop
Architects and Building Designers in Etobicoke, ON
"We can highly recommend BLDG Workshop with complete confidence. In contrast to the many bumps along the way of our renovation and addition, the design process was exciting and enjoyable. Nathan and his team of professionals were timely and efficient, good at communication, and willing to work with the trades we had hired; however, their best attribute is of course their smart, inspired design! Our favourite part of working with BLDG was the collaborating... they are the experts but they listened to our ideas and were excellent at incorporating our whims and wishes. We will definitely be contacting BLDG the next time we build!"

Architrave Design, Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Etobicoke, ON
"Architrave Design (Bill) was wonderful to work with on our reno project. We chose Bill because his portfolio expressed a respect for the existing architecture, and how to integrate a new reno into an existing house to make it look like it had always 'been like that'. He was flexible in meeting times/schedule, and provided a great deal of insight and experience. He worked within our budget, but was always realistic about the cost/feature tradeoff, and made helpful suggestions about different ways of approaching things. He also helped us navigate the (confusing) bureaucracy around the city by-laws process, and took an active role in working through some exemption applications. Throughout the project he was always available and would drop by to check on progress or to answer any questions that our GC had about the plans. We are thrilled with the end result, and were happy that Bill was part of the process."

Jeff Cogliati Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Etobicoke, ON
"Jeff is a consummate professional and takes great pride in his tremendous follow-up and attention to detail. Jeff is both a good communicator and listener, and was able to offer us valuable insight and problem solving skills which he applied to the design process. In addition, he presented us with 3D models which was very helpful in visualizing the space. I have no hesitation recommending Jeff as he is extremely talented, reliable, personable, and above all, passionate about his work."
- Jen McAvoy
Lorne Rose Architect
Architects and Building Designers in Etobicoke, ON
"My wife and I are big fans of Lorne Rose Architect. They are passionate and have a hands-on approach. What really impressed me about Lorne and his team is their emphasis on really listening to the client’s goals and dreams for the project which can often be difficult for them to articulate and really “get it”. We were not sure what exactly to expect when we started, but they patiently explained and guided us through the process to put us at ease, we never felt akward about giving input or asking questions if we needed clarity. The end result was stunning and we would highly reccomend Lorne and his team."

VJM Architectural Design
Architects and Building Designers in Etobicoke, ON
"I met VJM Architectural Design team at a house I was about to purchase, which was designed by it. The house was modern, with splendid finishings and extraordinary fixtures, quite different and unique in relation to the other houses I saw. I decided to hire this Company for my own house building. The design was done in efficient and cooperative way, all my wishes, remarks and suggestions were taken into account. VJMA proceeded with the work in a very professional way, giving me many advises and professional opinions. The end result was a modern house with artistic character. I was so much delighted by this design, I hired the Company again for renovation of my son's house. I highly recommend VJMA knowing, that the Company is reliable, professional, supportive from the beginning of the real estate's plans up till the end of the building permit obtention and beyond."

Wanda Ely Architect Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Etobicoke, ON
"My husband and I are currently working with Wanda to update the kitchen of our Toronto century home (my estimates below are projected therefore, rather than actual, as the work is not yet complete). Wanda took time to hear our needs and wants and has been expert at helping us to clarify what those actually are. We had been stalled in the decision making stage for years, and within a few short weeks of working with Wanda, she had helped us to come up with a design that we are very happy with. It works for our esthetic and our budget and solved the design riddles that had plagued us. I had seen some other projects that Wanda worked on and whilst I really admired them, I knew my husband and I would be making very different style choices from those clients. I have been most impressed with Wanda's ability to "get" and work with our eclectic and somewhat undefined tastes as well as our thrifty budget."

How do I find the best Etobicoke 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 Ontario 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 Etobicoke 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 Etobicoke, ON 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 Etobicoke, ON 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 Etobicoke 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?
