About SWD

At SWD, we strive to create contemporary spaces that evolve with our clients needs.

Studio West Designs is a boutique studio that designs Buildings and provides Interior Design services based in Vancouver, British Columbia. We are experienced in building design as well as interior space planning/design of both residential and commercial tenant spaces.

Like our name implies, we love creating modern yet timeless spaces that complements our West Coast environment and lifestyle. With our residential design, we strive to provide homes for living everyday to the fullest, homes to grow, entertain, work, and play. Our commercial spaces encourage a sense of comfort, efficiency, and lightness.
