We provide design solutions that are practical, economical and sustainable

When we design a home, we look at different factors to reduced carbon footprint and provide cost savings.

We create value 

One of the key objectives of our design process is to build a home that you love more each time you enter the space. We want to build a home that you crave when you have been away, and you can’t wait to return to a place that truly reflects you and your life.

We relieve the stress of the design and construction process

Building a home from scratch is equal parts exciting and daunting. The team at SZTUK Architecture wants you to focus on the exciting while we manage and oversee every detail and every step of your project from design to the completion of your dream home.

Philosphy

Form follows function -that has been misunderstood. Form and function should be one, joined in a spiritual union.

Sztuk Architecture

The professional team at Sztuk Architecture is focused on working with you to bring your contemporarydream home into reality.

Our Story
Tomasz’s passion for creation began at a young age, when he thought of himself as a sculptor, shaping objects out of play-doh, and later stone. Tomasz’s Grandpa, an artisan blacksmith who often worked on preserving important monuments, had a profound influence on Tomasz as it was through his Grandpa that he saw the need to preserve the old while incorporating the new.

He discovered his true passion lay with architecture, which offered a similar spatial experience to artistic work, but on a larger scale of creation.

Originally from Krakow, Poland (one of UNESCO World’s first 12 Heritage Sites) Tomasz has practiced in both European and Canadian settings, giving him a unique perspective on the fusion of the modern with the historic in his designs.

His travels to such faraway places as Italy’s Verona, (a personal favourite) that have helped inform his understanding and appreciation of sound urban design.

Project Road Map: An overview of how we bring your dream home into reality

Resources
Discover

We listen, ask questions and investigate. We want to understand your vision for your dream home. We investigate local building codes, bylaws and area redevelopment plans (just to name a few).

Design: The Broad Strokes

This is where things start to get personal. We want to know how you will live in your home – from pets to laundry we want to know it all. We develop schematic (rough) designs of the site and floor plans of your dream home.

Design: The Details

This is where we begin to design by the millimeter and polish and finalize all the designs and features of your home.

Construction Documents

We develop detailed construction and drawings. We can even help you select the contractor and work with the City to get your building permit.

Build

We break ground on your dream home and monitor all key building milestones. This is also when you finalize all the materials for your home from flooring to fixtures to cabinetry.

Completion

We review and correct any deficiencies of your new dream home and ensure that is move-in ready.

Celebrate

Pop the champagne the work is done. All that’s left to do is enjoy your custom dream home.

Each new situation requires a new architecture.

~ Jean Nouvel
