Additional Design Services

Often what makes a home truly sing is custom millwork & well chosen finishes, inside and out.

Providing guidance on the selection of fixtures and finishes from flooring to light fixtures and paint colours is often a value added service for both clients & their contractor.

I also create custom pieces of millwork to suit any space & style.

Architectural Design Services

I am a BCIN Designer registered with the Province of Ontario. I offer full scope design services to take your project from initial sketches to final construction drawings.

I am passionate about designing homes that support healthy living. From material selection to building details, I design spaces that are beautiful, have a light footprint, are energy efficient & long lasting.

Exploring the environmental footprint of your home

I can offer guidance on the material selection and details of a home to meet the climate commitment of the homeowners.  I then estimate the climate impact of the construction using the 'BEAM' tool created by Builders for Climate Action.


This service is a simple way to set the intention for the project and can be used as a guideline throughout. 

What Our Clients Say


Bridgewater Cottage - A new, heritage home

"We wanted a home that would feel like a heritage house along the Rideau Canal. One with deep windows and a layout that gave both ourselves and guests privacy & views.  Claire very quickly understood our vision and designed a home that met all of our expectations. The house was designed for us to age in place. It's versatile and very energy efficient.
When we sold 'Bridgewater Cottage'', it wasn’t on the market long!" Polly & Tom
