Brittany Kochen
Interior Designer

Brittany first knew that she had a desire to create and design when she was introduced to the computer game “The Sims”. She was addicted to the game, but not for its intended purpose. Designing the homes and selecting the paint colours and furnishings was what made the game so interesting.

Brittany was introduced to the design world in 2010 when she worked as a design assistant at SGDI, while completing her Interior Design Management certificate at BCIT. Taking some time away from the firm to focus on her studies, she completed her Diploma in Interior Design in 2015. After gaining a year of experience with a design firm specializing in heritage restoration, she returned to work with Sarah Gallop Design Inc.

Brittany loves to travel and the most memorable place she has visited is Lisbon, Portugal. When asked to summarize her design experience there, she describes it as ‘Paris meets Havana. The history and prestige of Paris with the architecture of Cuba, bright, bold, and vibrant!’ She continues to draw from her travels in designs she creates and loves the collaboration of the team at SGDI.

 

“Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add,
but when there is nothing left to take away”

What People Are Saying

Lawrence Green

"I was impressed not only by Sarah's design ability, but also with her level of construction knowledge. I have heard that a lot of designers are good at making things pretty, but are not that great at understanding how things are actually built- Sarah is fantastic at both. I recommend them to anyone and everyone I know without hesitation."

Diane and Vince Grdina

"We had the pleasure of working with Sarah on the construction of our new home. We had a lot of fun working with them and found them always thoughtful, mindful, and professional. We would highly recommend their firm and would use them again without hesitation."

Pete Rackow

"We were immediately impressed with Sarah's ability to assess our needs and understand the type of home my wife and I wanted for us and our 3 boys. Her attention to detail is flawless and every inch of our fully renovated home is thoroughly thought through. I felt like they cared about our home as much as we the homeowners did."
