We are a design-build firm that specializes in modern projects. It is all we do. We love it. We live it. We breath it. We are so passionate about it that we have made it our mission to become the best there is at designing, managing and constructing modern projects where we live.
The first time I stepped inside an architecturally designed modern home I was hooked. I was in my early 20's and I was delivering the furniture. The quality of light, the simplicity of form, the exactness of the design; I was mesmerized. Since then I have made it my goal to do everything necessary to build modern homes as my life's work. For most of my adulthood I have been studying, building, managing or designing modern homes. It is what I love and what motivates me.
I earned my Environmental Design Degree at UBC as part of the Architecture program and I have learned and mentored under one of the best in the construction business at Powers Construction in Vancouver. I have swung the hammer, run the CAD programs, sat in development services departments, performed client consultations, picked interior finishes, engineered spreadsheets, drawn sketches on napkins, poured the concrete, manned the shovel and stayed awake at night passionately thinking over every fine detail. Quite plainly everything on our projects tells the story of my journey. I have given my sweat, my blood and my heart pursuing this craft. MDRN Built is an expression of myself and my life. It is not based on styles, or fads, or trends. It is not about following what the market is after. It is about creating a design-build practice that is rooted in authenticity, quality and timeless modern design.
With MDRN Built I have taken my equal backgrounds in construction and design and fused it in the company and the crew so that we can manage and execute every millimetre of your projects. Whether it is a budget tracking spreadsheet or a window detail, everything that we do is considered, intentioned and informed by our belief in design, craft and commitment to your home as something that should be timeless. We work with you from the initial conception all the way through delivery of your finished project, keeping you regularly informed and engaged along the way. We strive to be there for you to make the process of building a great modern home as pleasant as it should be for you.
We strongly believe that what we do at MDRN Built is rare and special, but what drives us is our passion for our craft, our love for great design and the relationships we foster with clients along the way.
It takes great courage to think about what it truly means to live, and that's what building a home is all about.
If owning a modern home is your dream, designing and building it for you is mine.
