Deb Cove Design
Architects and Building Designers in North Vancouver, BC
"We are very happy with the downstairs space that Deb Cove designed for us. We started with a disgusting semi-finished space in the basement of our very small 1927-built house. The floor was uneven, the lighting terrible, and the storage area almost useless. We wanted a clean and functional bathroom, an efficient laundry area and lots of enclosed storage space, but had no idea what to do. Deb listened to our needs and created a tentative design using a computer program. She was easy to work with and full of great ideas. She brought just enough samples to provide choices, but always recommended items that would fit in with the overall look she thought would suit the house. She had good contacts with tradespeople and suppliers, so I didn't have to search for materials. The laundry, bathroom and furnace area have been turned into a bright, efficient space that is now my favourite part of our house. I highly recommend her services."

Synthesis Design Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in North Vancouver, 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!!!"

Vallely Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in North Vancouver, BC
"Kevin designed two Contemporary single family residences for me with an eye towards the working at home professional. Beautiful design and open concept with the option of a nanny/ income suite and seperate entrance to my home office. Unfortunately we moved before we could complete the project. I hope the new property owners continue with his design , it would be a great addition to the North Shore ."

"Susanne Doise has worked for us as a designer and project manager, introducing contemporary ideas and good space solutions always with her touch of European flavor . We enlarged and modified the interior and exterior of the second floor of a 50 year old house into an open space concept mostly in the dining, sitting and kitchen area as well as the Master Bedroom quarters. Overall good work, within budget and complete understanding of our needs and lifestyle."

Architects and Building Designers in North Vancouver, BC
"This was a very challenging project due to the size.We were very pleased with the research done with materials and knowledge of new ideas. The company was very respectable of the budget provided, and often found various idea of how to complete projects. Preparation was always done before we tackled any new job with various choices which made it easier for us to make decisions. Also was able to work with different contractors sometimes at the same time and make the work "flow " accordingly."

Halex Architecture
Architects and Building Designers in North Vancouver, BC
"We hired Halex Architecture to design the addition of a family room and deck to our 1940's bungalow in New Westminster and were thrilled with the outcome. Kent took great care to ensure that the addition was integrated into our home's architectural style and we receive nothing butt compliments about how the addition feels and looks like a part of the original house. Fees were as budgeted and he was open to ideas and suggestions provided during the design process, including feedback from our contractor. He was also very supportive and helpful throughout the sometimes daunting municipal permit and approval process. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Halex Architecture."

Architects and Building Designers in North Vancouver, BC
"The design team at Alex Glegg Design was very intuitive. We found that Alex was able to easily interpret our ideas and dreams for our new home, through discussion and photos and put them on paper for us to explore further. We ended up with the perfect solution for our renovated home. From start to finish. It was a wonderful experience."

How do I find the best North Vancouver 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 North Vancouver 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 North Vancouver, 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 North Vancouver, 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 North Vancouver 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?
