Your goals are the focal point of an enjoyable process.


We understand that every client has a different set of goals and requirements. For every client our consultation process starts with a meeting to discuss your goals and possibilities. We work diligently with the client to determine a realistic construction schedule based on a variety of factors from the start of construction through to a client approved budget. Typically, the scheduling discussion begins before the design work starts and this is revisited as the design process progresses and nears completion. 

Our ability to both design and construct is unique in the business and it allows us to achieve results that exceed client expectations. We can create your design from a blank slate or can advance a construction project based on existing architectural plans


The dialogue between client and architect is about as intimate as any conversation you can have, because when you’re talking about building a house, you’re talking about dreams.

Our tailored design approach 


Where we are appointed to design your home Tony Gornik will provide architectural design and consultation to fully realize your vision. Our design approach is tailored to each client’s aesthetic and lifestyle needs. The initial design discussions are brought to life in hand drawn sketches that reflect the skills of the designer and the objectives of the client.  Upon completion of this process, full digital auto-cad plans will be prepared to initiate the required municipal approval process.  Our goal is to achieve an enjoyable and successful design process for the client.  


Design details supported by experience


Our firm has the ability to construct building details as they were envisioned. When Tony is called upon for design solutions his details are visually and technically sound based on his long experience servicing the high end custom home market.  The sum of the parts is a home that embodies an exceptional combination of great design and meticulous construction.  



Building a home in the GTA involves navigating a sometimes complicated approvals and permits process.  Our firm will look after every aspect of this process in order to meet the many requirements for a building permit. Our experience in this regard will minimize delays in the time required to build your home. 


We rely on experienced trades people that are leaders in their craft


Master works in stone, metal, tile, wood, plaster and other materials are all possible.  The craftsmen work in a cooperative team environment that ensures their specific skills are supported at every step of the way. The building process is completed under the direction of Tony Gornik and Dennis Gornik ensuring exceptional build quality as well as designs that come to life as conceived.


Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together. There it begins.

Exceeding expectations


Our continual pursuit of excellence in construction, design and client service is what allows us to consistently exceed our clients expectations. At the completion of the construction process we achieve a result that is greater than the sum of the parts. Our finished homes are exceptional.

Beauty will result from the form and the correspondence of the whole, with respect to the several parts, of the parts with regard to each other, and of these again to the whole; that the structure may appear an entire and complete body, wherein each member agrees with the other, and all necessary to compose what you intend to form.
— Andrea Palladio
