With 25 years of creative ingenuity in her portfolio, a Colette Nap project speaks for itself – while taking your breath away. Colette has worked as designer on various building types in Canada, Holland & Iceland. Her firm specializes in residential design including custom homes, multi-unit buildings, renovations and small commercial projects. Always client inspired, Colette also provides interior design and millwork design for both residential and commercial projects.

Using the expertise that has brought both client satisfaction and awards, Colette has also specialized in barrier free designs for both new construction and renovations, responding to a need that exists for this type of expertise. Not only has she mastered this method for her clients, she also developed many accessible features for her own home which came from a desire to make the outdoors a part of the indoor space.

Colette also has extensive experience designing R-2000 homes which economically produce high standards for energy efficiency and air quality while incorporating sustainable building materials.
