“It was a pleasure working with Barbara to design our Downtown hair salon. Because that salon is on the second floor we were concerned about the lack of street level visibility but her design made the salon a visitable showcase at the corner or Burrard and Georgia. Her design for the backbar area and Colour Bar are so striking we always get rave reviews by everyone who enters. She helped us maintain the synchronicity between design and function while helping us create a harmonious environment for both staff and clients.”

Sheinan and Company

Barbara is amazing! From our first meeting through to completion her attention to detail and hands-on approach made our renovation a breeze. She has fantastic design expertise and was wonderful at helping us choose options. All of her trades people are excellent. But the main thing is she truly cared about our project. I highly recommend her!

“Ms. Smyth carried out office design and layout work for us, and to our great satisfaction. It is on the basis of their performance that I can unhesitatingly recommend their work.”

When we consult with you, our goal is to form a complete understanding of your present and future workplace requirements, your company culture, your budget and any by-laws surrounding the project.

Together we explore the layouts and possibilities for your office. We connect the critical people, office functions and IT elements to define the best workplace strategy uniquely tailored to suit your company’s business plan.

From this early stage we are able to establish a preliminary cost which allows you to prioritize on specific office design goals.
