With Canada Day right around the corner, we thought it would be a great idea to put together finds from pinterest with a red and white theme. Everyone enjoy the long weekend!
One of the many projects that our design team are faced with is, renovating and rejuvenating interior spaces. For this particular project, we are currently involved in the design concept and development of an exhibition hall and entry lobby. While it began with a simple request to create a division between these two spaces, it later evolved into developing a more dynamic environment with an impactful entrance point that would portray a greater sense of arrival as well as give the space a much needed aesthetic boost with the inclusion grand design elements.
Before Interior Images and Floor Plan
These before images show the lack of two defined spaces, and helped out team conclude that presently there is no dynamic focal point that will entice and interest future visitors.
From the current floor plan, our team was able to propose this new layout, which includes many design elements and details.
Proposed Floor Plan
The newly proposed lobby and hall encompasses grand design, as it includes several design features that attracts ones eyes and leads them on a design journey through the space. The proposed lobby layout includes much needed seating areas, as well as improved vertical ambulation with the addition of a new elevator aglow with colour changing LEDs. The vertical expanse of the new divider wall aids in creating drama while maintaining an airy feel. All these design features are able to work in harmony creating a cohesive space that is both pleasing and functional.
Please stay tuned for continuous updates on this project and look out for our finished product!
As spring is slowly starting to become a reality; I remember the times as a child drawing on the sidewalk and driveway with a bunch of chalk, creating dream homes, perhaps foreshadowing a future career choice??
Enjoy this weeks, spring inspired colour palette.

One of the postings we will be posting monthly will be a pinterest round up of things that caught our eye. While it is still cold and gray outside we hope to liven you with some pops of colour. This weeks focus is everything orange! As you can all see orange is well incorporated into our lifestyle here at arch-tech design group and we hope we can inspire you to use some orange in your own home.
Arch-Tech Design Group went through some major changes recently. One of those was buying and renovating a new space for our office. The new space was dark and cluttered. We ended up taking a few divider walls down, added a window opening, to make the space look lighter and larger. The following are progress photos of our new office.
The rebuilding proccess, in goes new flooring, paint with an accent colour of orange – our colour of choice and new ceiling tiles. A few desks and shelving and our work space is complete.
Below are images of our boardroom and sample library.
Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday season and happy new year! As the new year comes in, 2013 brings with it some very exciting new changes for Arch-Tech.
We are undergoing a whole new image to better reflect our company and the design services that we provide to our clients. So with that in mind……we are proud to announce that Arch- Tech Design and Drafting is now called Arch-Tech Design Group! We are the same company that our clients know; but, we feel this better describes our team as whole, we are after all a close knit family. Along with this name change we have also moved to a brand new location (we’re bigger and better), and have also hired a new staff member.
With these changes also comes a new site, and with a new site comes a blog! We will be posting about current projects, events, design trends and inspirations. We will be updating the blog weekly (maybe twice a week but lets not get ahead of ourselves) so stay tuned and visit us often for news and updates. Don’t forget to connect with us through facebook and twitter as well.
