Synthesis, By Definition:
“THE COMBINING OF ELEMENTS TO CREATE A UNIFIED WHOLE”
Founded in 1992, Synthesis Design Inc. is a talented and dedicated team of designers with degrees, from Masters of Architecture, Bachelor of Interior Design, to Psychology, Engineering, and Fine Arts, that specializes in residential projects from renovations and additions, to complete custom home and interior design.
Our design firm is a collaborative mix and brainstorming of ideas, concepts and practical application. We work in an environment that welcomes open dialogue and engagement. Projects, at various stages, are displayed in our studio as we collectively search and discover our client’s unique vision.
In our studio “crit” tradition, all brainstorming ideas are welcome, no matter how far out they may seem. From administration staff, to engineers and designers, we have created a culture where everyone can collectively express ideas. We feel this best represents a cross section of our demographic. Our team always walk away at the end of the day with a new found sense of creative vision. Our extraordinary environment of constant creative stimulation and problem solving empowers us and, ultimately, benefits all of our client projects. A clients’ project is always more defined, more creative, and more cost effective after a studio crit.
Our extensive experience and diverse team all contribute to our fresh perspective and informed approach to design, architecture, and sustainability.
We are a talented group of skilled and dedicated individuals who strive for excellence in every project. Our collaborative team consists of experienced architects, interior designers, engineers, and project managers who successfully develop projects from initial client meetings to conceptual sketches and on through to planning, permitting and implementation.
Synthesis Design’s projects are featured in many magazines, television shows, and online architecture/interior design sites. We are proud to be featured in well-respected publications and media, like W Network and Vancouver Home magazine.
