Residential Architectural Design

NDArchitects services clients in the Toronto, Cobourg, Kingston, and Northumberland areas.

We offer some knowledge for free at the level understandable to anyone, and we also have some low cost services related to the typical problems that Clients usually encounter at the start. This organized help in preplanning is the precursor to have it “On Time and On Budget”.

The discovery process of needs and wants, resulting in the clear design brief, is the foundation of the design process. There is no “If I only had known” later. The Client knows exactly what they need, where to look for and when to go into hiring the architect of their choice. Proper preparation is a must.

And, by all means, our process of doing the project itself is the guarantee that the Client will have every stone turned and be in full control; no pay big cost to correct or settle for lesser design.


Lifestyle At Any Budget

Custom Homes

New Custom Single Family Homes

A new customized design for families and their homes is the most, or at least between the highest investments in personal life. We help the Client to fully understand feasibility of their own needs and wants, the expenses, timescale, the regulations.
Beside financial, the emotional aspect is even more dominant. Positive or negative feel, upon a job done, has a ripple effect for years to come. And, that is what we are doing in NDArchitects. We give personality to your home together with you.
The quality of our design depends on the full collaboration with the Client at the very initial stage and needs to be maintained through the whole process.
NDArchitects is versatile in providing both the traditional or contemporary modern style to make Client’s dream come true.


Renovations to Family Homes

Renovations are the most challenging endeavors for both the Clients and Architects.
Much of new work is based on what is existing, be it demolished or repaired or changed; the surprises can happen during the construction, as it is not always possible to establish the real state of some building system or part of a structure.
The span of required renovations goes in range from a tiny baby bedroom, through kitchen and bath and up to full house remodeling. Clients need created something that is not where it needs to be, or change something that exists already.
It is not necessarily correcting a bad design but rather a Client needs a change that feels new. It is about different, comfortable and welcoming space that make you feel better when being there, your family place, a destination for friends visit.


NDArchitects sees the house through the Client’s eyes. Even aspects seeming trivial maybe are fully addressed; there are no small unimportant things, all is discussed and checked, no assumptions. We are trying to speak language, although technical, yet not patronizing, respecting Client’s needs. We help the client in their own discovery how to be in full control of their project.


Downsizing – Seniors’ Single family homes new and renovations

We strongly address the needs of millions of Baby Boomers and older, that are by now over 65.
The psychology of family changes is influenced by the reduction of number of members and commonly by health issues for senior couples or singles. The issues are emotional, can be social, financial, overall wellbeing could be jeopardized sometime.
Once again in our work, we start from your lifestyle and land with focus on accessibility, indoor and outdoor environment. Seniors spend more time at home, mobility, safety and enjoyment of the house both interior and exterior has to be the exact look and feel to their personal needs.
The smooth transition through downsizing is achieved by customizing adequate design elements.


Even in a case when a couple of seniors are lucky to be in best health shape, we integrate the strategies of Universal design for accessibility. If necessary, we will apply all requirements by ADA for handicapped, with full analysis and detailing.
All that can be incorporated in such a way that your home has a curb appeal, without a hint of an unpleasant institutional look.

ND Architects was recommended to me by a good friend and work associate with regard to an upcoming project requiring a full set of plans and permit requests. The suggestion was based on his positive past experience, highlighting the clarity and fullness of information, prevention of possible extra work and general positive nature regarding her “bubbly” personality. In the end, the design and the working drawings, were exactly to my liking, and It corresponded with the work in progress in such a way, that there was no concern of unexpected additional fees. They are very careful and clear in the delivery of their product, and I will be using Natasa again in the near future.

Port Hope – June 6, 2015

Our business is about little girls being a princess on their birthday.
It was not easy to trace a designer able to identify herself with such a specific environment for a child’s dream.
Natasa did our first space seven years ago, and since, we used her for all our locations so far.
The dialogue between us is ever evolving. Her interior design stretched to decorating and re-arranging our present and previous residences, as well.
She is the follower of our family’s wants and needs.

Jelena Solujic· Owner of Fairytaleland Mississauga – June 26, 2013

Natasa took on the renovation of my 3-bedroom apartment in a residential building. After over 30 years of use, there was a built-up of various problems, I wouldn’t know where to start.
She inspired me into full engagement and collaboration. Her guidance was through numerous questions. It helped me in understanding pros and cons. She was fully familiar with my way of living.
In order to simplify the construction process and choice and supply of materials, she dedicated many hours to come down to the solution.
The design respected the existing character of the place, and yet it changed my everyday life to a better living in this same spot.
