Sustainability in Building Design

Inspiring physical, emotional & spiritual well being through purposeful design.

“Rod was wonderful to work with. He was available, professional and easy to communicate with. He listened to our thoughts, ideas and visions for our home and came up with the perfect plan for us. We wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks Rod!” – Ange & Ron Forster 

“We searched for house plans and were unable to find anything that met our needs. Rod was recommended to us by our neighbors and we couldn’t have been happier with our decision. Rod was amazing to work with, his mastery of the design program he uses is incredible. Within 45 minutes of our second meeting with him, we had a house plan close to being what we wanted. Rod communicates well and was able to envision our ideas and turn it into a workable design. Our new house is absolutely incredible, we love it! The windows allow for tons of natural light, as well as bringing the outdoors inside. Everyone who comes to visit, loves the house design. We have recommended Rod to our friends and will use [Avoyé Design] on any projects in the future.”  –  John and Linda Lowe

“Rod was recommended to me by my contractor and I couldn’t have been happier with my decision. Rod was very easy to work with and directed my ideas and visions for my house to a workable design. My house is beautiful! Anyone who comes to see my house always asks who the house designer was. I would highly recommend [Avoyé Design].”  – Jennifer T.

“Rod not only has an amazing attention to detail, he asks the right questions to thoroughly determine the needs of his clients. He is amenable to all matters relating to the design and is a consummate professional. Rod gives back to his community as well as he has been a long standing partner with Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North. I would highly recommend Rod for all of your design needs.”  Pat McKenna – Executive Director, Habitat For Humanity Island North

“Rod did an excellent job of assessing the structural and functional aspects of our existing house. This was followed by his creation of a beautiful new additional floor on top of the existing house. This addition includes a spacious master bedroom, walk-in closet and ensuite as well as a spectacular deck. The design makes the most of the natural light and the views of the Strait of Georgia and the Vancouver Island mountains. The photo in the post was taken mid-construction.” – Robert Seal

“My vision is to create space that is a ‘living’ entity of its own, with care to consider and respect the function, form, and purpose for which it is here and how it will impact people and the environment.

I strongly value intention and purpose as a guiding framework for design, and am most curious about what possibilities lie beyond predictable outcomes.

I strive to create a teamwork approach to the process; the best design will always emerge from a relationship that forms between the client, designer, and the contractor.

My goal is to produce designs that support and enhances my client’s lifestyle through meaningful use of space, and enriches and transforms their physical, emotional, and spiritual well being.”  ~ Rod Avoyé
