Douglas Lawrence Architect 
Building or renovating a home or business can be an expensive, complex and time consuming process. It should also be an exciting and rewarding experience. We work with you from start to finish to make sure that you understand the steps involved and to give you the best project possible. We can advise you before you buy a property or we can help you to create the perfect home or cottage. We bring the same high level of design to projects of all scales and believe that that a small interior renovation is as important as the design of a large house.

Design Consultation
Often the best way to get started in the process, is to arrange for us to visit with you at the site of your project and to use  our 30 years of design experience to help you decide on the best direction forward.  Sometimes even  the smallest of changes can make the greatest impact. We can steer you through the complexities of Zoning and Permits, make the most of your space and budget, help you to deal with Contractors and most of all to create a unique space that you will be excited to live and work in.
