Custom Home Architect
Makow Associates Architect Inc. has been designing some of Toronto’s most unique custom homes since 1984. Our office specializes in the design of bespoke custom homes, ranging in size from 3,000 to 20,000 square feet. The design philosophy of the firm holds that well-executed architecture evolves first from understanding the client’s needs, and from communication between the architect and Homeowner. From the understanding that develops, our first step is to design a layout, unique for your site, which considers both interior and exterior space. The basis of our design of your home is this layout, where spaces flow naturally from one to another and function to satisfy your programmatic requirements.
Makow Architects particular strength is listening to clients to develop an architecture that is an expression of their needs and stylistic preferences. All of the projects in the office benefit from the firm’s keen design sense and close attention to detail. Makow Associates is a highly versatile custom home architecture and design firm, as is apparent in its exteriors, which range from classical to modern in accordance with the client’s preferences.
Building a home for yourself and your family is a major undertaking, and Makow Architects has been guiding its clients through the process for over thirty years. We design the homes of our client’s dreams by making the most of the potential of their site through the zoning, committee of Adjustment, and permit process, developing complete ‘for construction’ drawings that reliably describe the project for builders, and by closely following the work of the contractor to ensure a smooth process. The development of interior spaces is central to our design process, ensuring that the architecture fits the interior space, and that the interior spaces will meet expectations. We can work closely with your interior designer, and also offer incomparable in-house interior design.
Makow Architects’ houses have been recognized by the awards programs of the International Property Awards, the OAA, the Toronto Home Builder’s Association, Ontario Home Builder’s Association and the Canadian Home Builder’s Association. While specializing in work in Toronto and the GTA, we have also designed homes and vacation properties throughout Ontario and Quebec, United States, the Bahamas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Israel.
