About Us

Your Vision Our Goal

The Design House is a multi‐disciplinary design consultancy firm specializing in Architectural Design and  supervision,  Mechanical  and  Electrical  Engineering  design,  production  and  installation,  and  contract  administration. Our principals are all registered professionals in their fields, each with at least 15 years’  experience. 

We  are  supported  by  a  team  of  very  experienced  and  highly  trained  Draftsmen,  computer  graphics  specialists,  and  site  technicians,  capable  of  handling  any  work  our  clients  may  require.  We  pride  ourselves  on  being  at  the  forefront  of  the  design  process,  and thus  invest  heavily  in  training,  with  design and render software, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and LEED Accreditation.

We  provide  our  services  to a wide  range  of  clientele,  ranging  from local and  regional  developers,  to  international firms investing in projects in St. Lucia and other Caribbean islands and local and regional  government.  

Our integrative approach to designing promotes, as far as is possible, the inclusion of ALL stakeholders  from implementing agency  to end  user,  thus  striving  to ensure  that all  parties are  satisfied with  the  end product. Our experience with regional building codes, guidelines and practices, blended with our  knowledge and appreciation of the latest trends in construction technology, helps ensure we can make  our designs future proof, thus protecting our clients from high maintenance/ renovation costs.

Our guiding philosophy is that, as the clients’ representatives, we must become personally invested in  our projects, keeping a keen eye out  for issues arising during the design or construction phases, and  ensuring they are corrected to our complete satisfaction.
