Shane
Home Design Manager

Shane realized his calling early in his teens when he overheard his parents talking about their need for an extensive kitchen renovation. He sketched through the night, and left them with their dream kitchen on the counter in the morning. This led him to pursue his passion for architecture at SAIT, and he went on to graduate on the Presidents List and Honour Roll.

Over the course of his 20+ years, Shane has designed his career to focus on his passion of high-end luxury custom homes, while providing exemplary customer service. He has been fortunate enough to have received over half a dozen awards for Best New House design, including a top 5 finalist for Best New House in Canada – twice.

At SGDI, Shane oversees the custom home designers; guiding and supporting the team, as well as leading projects and working with clients to make the vision for their home come to life.

When he’s not designing your beautiful custom home, Shane can be found recharging his batteries out in all of the beauty that BC has to offer.

“Architecture is really about well-being. I think that people want to feel good in a space … On the one hand it’s about shelter, but it’s also about pleasure.” – Zaha Hadid

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."
