Laura Agnew

Principal Interior Design

 

Laura has worked on a number of projects throughout Vancouver’s Northshore, westside and lower mainland. She brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the company. Together her aim is to bring bespoke interiors that show true individualism but that are disciplined, enough to meet the sensitivity of the clients budgets and timelines where required. Our regret is that we can’t show more of our work here, as so much of it is enjoyed only by the clients and their wish to have their interiors remain “theirs’.

 

Landscape Team

 

Our landscape team is made up of three experienced landscape designers and has the ability to pull on outside talent as projects demand.

 

Many of the homes in West Vancouver now require full landscape plans as a part of the Building Permit submission, so having the expertise on hand at the initial design stage of someones home is a real benefit. A truly comfortable home and or commercial project gives consideration to the landscaping because it absolutely grounds the architecture. Creates a sense belonging and settlement.

 

Property Management Team

 

Vicki Thompson

Principal Design Marque Property Management

 

Many of Design Marque’s clients have bought properties to develop and in so doing may find themselves sitting on their purchases for many months whilst approval are being sought from the municipalities. It makes sense then to have the property pay its way whilst waiting on these processes to be completed. Vicki has 20 years of dealing with property management and is experienced in the exclusive high end rentals through to those we shall refer to as more modest. The care and consideration is always paramount and your investment is treated as though it were our own. You can rest assured it will be well taken care of.
