Joy Yu
Interior Designer

At a young age Joy’s love of residential design was inspired by her father’s work at his custom kitchen and bathroom company. From there she was constantly exposed to the design process, and was fascinated by the importance it played into clients’ daily lives. Growing up in Hong Kong, she has always been inspired by the culture and diversity the city had to offer.

Joy is a graduate from the Interior Design Program at The British Columbia Institute of Technology. She believes that creating a personal connection with homeowners is essential in fine tuning the space they call home. Working at SGDI, she thrives on infusing her clients’ designs with special touches of personalization learned while building that connection during the design discovery process.

When she is not drafting away at her desk, or choosing beautiful materials to use on the next project, you can find this foodie hunting down her next meal all over the lower mainland.

“Every great design begins with an even better story” – Lorinda Mamo

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."
