"Rick was our Architect and Alison was our designer for a new detached house build in Mississauga. Rick is wonderful to work with, patient, respectful of our ideas, flexible, available and an amazing architect. He has a real passion for his work and an excellent artistic vision. Alison was fantastic, she really listened to our ideas and needs and incorporated them into beautiful designs. They were easy to work with, professional and excellent at their trade. I can't say enough. They worked within our budget and went beyond what we expected of them."

Structured Creations Inc.
Architects and Building Designers in Port Colborne, ON
"Darren and the team at Structured Creations were a dream to collaborate with. When we took our 100 year old home to the brick, Darren guided us through returning it to a neo Art Deco look. And long after the design phase was over, he kept in touch and helped us overcome any obstacles during construction. It was reassuring to have a calm and knowledgeable expert on our side who appreciated the importance of attention to detail on such an extensive renovation."

"Joel was amazing to work with. He got right into my head and created a home that met and exceeded my expectations. He was very insightful right from the beginning, from home placement on the lot to making the home appealing and functional. Joel was a wealth of information and provided me with not only products to choose from but an endless list of quality tradesmen to help with the project.

"David gave us the best modern home design ever. He was amazing to work with. He stayed on schedule . Was very flexible when we requested tweaks and changes. He knew exactly what we were looking for and he delivered it. When we started the project we were just concerned about the inside - we left one wall standing . By the end of the project the outside of our house has an amazing WOW factor. Our house won award of distinction in Ontario for 2014."

The client sees exactly what is intended. Anyone considering remodeling or building a new home would certainly benefit by getting in touch with the professionals at Lex Parker Design."

The Landing Company
Architects and Building Designers in Port Colborne, ON
"I can only give the highest recommendation for the Landing Company. Will Klassen is one of the most creative people I have ever met. He also has the ability to discover what type of creativity (or style) his customer most enjoys. I never once felt "pushed" into a design I didn't like, but rather was "stretched" in my choices and without exception the end result exceeded my expectations. For example, I wanted to use a large piece of "live-edge" slate for a back-splash for my stove. Will made it happen in a way I didn't imagine and it looked stunning. A telling comment by a long-time friend the first time she saw the renovation finished was, "It's very YOU--classy but comfortable!""
- Miriam Ratzlaff

How do I find the best Port Colborne 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 Port Colborne 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 Port Colborne, 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 Port Colborne, 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 Port Colborne 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?
