is our passion.
Love what you do
We believe time is a valuable luxury. Business is a complex beast and we are here to listen, understand, and
process the evolutionary vision of your company. Our mission is to simplify and focus the design/build
process into an efficient well oiled machine. Our holistic approach consists of a dedicated team of
professionals and specialist in interior design, drafting, millwork design, flooring, lighting, project
management and product procurement in furnishings, objects and fine art. The fluidity of all components
working together in one location cohesively, creates thoughtful solutions and meaningful spaces that
integrate advances in organizational development, sustainability, wellness, work space efficiency and new technologies.
We value people, community, relationships and the natural beauty that surrounds us. Our profession is unlike
many others, it is both and art and science. On one hand, design involves a very calculated precision of construction, building codes, material composition and application; and on the other a creative, intuitive and emotional strategist.
We are here to help you gain clarity in your purpose and gift you the time you need to focus on your business to be an innovative industry leader.
It's a big job...let us help.
Our mission is our commitment to understanding our clients and transform their vision by providing intelligent design solutions that will exceed their expectations; a custom tailored design that encompasses who you are and how you work.
At Dwell Living we fundamentally believe the Initial Design Consultation is most beneficial when undertaken on site, in the heart of your business. This allows the Designer to closely analyse the Client’s requirements, proposed projections and develop a scope of service to meet both your design aspirations and your business development. At this time initial budgets and schedules are discussed and by conducting the meeting on site, this allows the Designer the opportunity to identify any potential risks or external factors which may present themselves.
Interpretation of the initial design brief its undertaken and it is here that the
Designer engages with what is a very personal approach to each project with a view to offering a design solution to each Client and business that fully reflects and exceeds their aspirations. At this stage floor plans, 3D visualizations and technical drawings form the basis of an overall design presentation to allow the Client to visualize their design proposal and the potential impact on their working environment.
Detailed and highly accurate budgets are then developed to include all products and services within the scope of works. Uniquely, being manufacturer direct allows us to deliver a wide variety of high quality product lines at the very best available prices: from furniture, to lighting and flooring as well as building materials - we have it all!
Formal documentation between Client and Designer outlines specific scope of works and associated cost. At this stage the appointment of the relevant sub-contractors is established and a schedule of works produced with a view to deliver your project around your on-going business. Applicable Building Permits as well as Health and Safety Plans are identified in compliance with Work Safe BC.
Complete drawings and full design specification package are produced for Client approval to include all detailed millwork, appliance and furniture selection. This stage allows us to encapsulate your personal aspirations to tangible pieces and design features you will love, that will maximize the efficiency of your business and create and environment for your employees to thrive.
This is where the magic happens! Continually liaising with our team on site to bring your project to fruition in accordance with the budget and scope of works previously agreed. Dwell Living are to coordinate all works carried out during this time and regular site visits ensure quality of workmanship throughout each stage.
