INTERIORS

THAT
CREATE
ENVIRONMENTS

Jesse’s interior design approach focuses on the creation of an environment. It is an approach that is comprised of equal parts attention to the impact of the custom home’s exterior design on interior proportions, natural light, sprawling room flow, and detailed design features that support the functional use of the home. This approach considers much more than finishes and is an approach that only a designer who controls the entire design process can execute. Through these principles, lead designer Jesse Sahlani can create an environment you want to experience over and over again, as this, in his eyes, is the truest form of luxury design.

With the sentiment that the interior environment you are trying to create should always be the starting point of making aesthetic decisions, our process prioritizes sun studies and sketching different interior perspective views to clarify the proposed design intent. To achieve this, we get to know you well and pay close attention to lifestyle-related details that help us intuitively mold the home to support. Of course, the high-quality visualization process we are known for is a large part of providing a realistic experience to our clients alongside Jesse’s initial sketches.

DESIGN

EXPLORATION

The most important part of any interior starts with identifying the environment you are trying to create. This environment includes both the overall colours, millwork and feature wall styles, and specific features. Our goal is to understand the feeling you want to experience every time you enter your home. And as we always say, don’t be afraid to make every room a reflection of you and your tastes.

SKETCHES

Jesse firmly believes sketching is an integral phase in the design process as it forces you to consider the proportions and specific materials required to develop a timeless design. This belief extends to the interior design of any home design Jesse commits to designing. Interior perspective sketches are developed closely with our clients to ensure they reflect their exact specifications while perfecting the proportions and capturing the character of the overall design vision for each space.

3D RENDERS & TECHHNICAL ELEVATIONS

During this phase of the design process, our team optimizes the initial floor plan design we developed. We work with you to further develop electrical design plans, floor finish plans, millwork designs and placement plans, and unique ceiling details. We then bring these technical drawings to life using photo-realistic rendering tools.

MATERIAL
SPECIFICATIONS AND
SOURCING

We offer all interior selection materials in our office to ensure our clients don't have to go out of their way to visit multiple stores. Every material is curated by our team and proposed to our clients for approval. Our 3D renderings help you understand the proposed textures and colours of the necessary materials well in advance of the sourcing process.

3D MODELING & INTERIOR SUN STUDIES

Our team uses photorealistic 3D models internally to understand how much natural light will be harnessed into the home at different times of day. These high-quality renderings also help our clients understand the relationship between the floor plans, sketches, and the materials they chose. We consider this phase important in instilling the design vision in everyone involved in the project. The result of this phase is typically a finished product that is very similar to the initial models.

ON-SITE
PROJECT MANAGEMENT

When we design a custom home, we feel the responsibility of stewardship as we know that our designs will characterize the surrounding neighbourhood for decades to come. For this reason, we continue our involvement through the construction process to as high of a degree as required to achieve the design vision. We are able to provide everything from simple drawing explanations and clarifications, to site review meetings, as well as additional section details providing sequential construction instructions.

OUR APPROACH: PAIRING SKETCHING AND 3D RENDERINGS

Jesse Sahlani’s design process starts with a sun study, and sketches of the floor plans, exterior elevations and perspective views, as well as the interior perspective views. His ability to sketch has proven to be the discerning difference in his ability to develop timeless home designs, allowing him to explore a range of diverse design styles creatively and accurately through his own lens. For our clients, sketches create a highly engaging, creative, and collaborative environment that lays a strong base for the rest of the detailed design process.

While Jesse is a great sketch artist, our firm also specializes in sophisticated 3D modeling that we have become known for, building on Jesse’s artistic foundation, bringing the home to life accurately. This level of detailed visualization allows Jesse and his team to critique, refine, and perfect every detail of the home both inside and out. When you approach a home’s design from this perspective, your thoughts about each detail, and their weight in the scheme of the total design, change significantly. The result is that our firm focuses on the creation of an environment you want to experience over and over, and not just a custom home design.
