Commercial means brand distinction
Whether for boutique hospitality or flagship retail, we provide your commercial enterprise with the striking sophistication that belongs to handcrafted fenestration. Our specialized commercial projects cover a wide scope of purposes and budgets. Whether designing around wood, wood clad or metal windows and doors, architects have the flexibility to create an aesthetic that delivers brand differentiation and visibility.
Within each commercial project, we focus on a select scope of high-profile openings and spaces, in order to bring our clients the maximum value for their investment in handcrafted windows and doors. Instead of the everyday look of anodized aluminum, our storefront and window walls stand out with their unique finishes and narrow sightlines.
As we collaborate with your design team, we explore material options, finishes, glazing combinations, and budgets, as well as engineering and code compliance. Our aim is to navigate toward a clear specification that not only delivers on the project goals but also elevates the presence and essence of your brand.
As a custom window and door fabricator, we have collaborated on the following commercial projects:
- Boutique resorts, hotels and private villas
- Branded flagship retail
- Wineries, restaurants and gastro pubs
- Golf club facilities
- Historic restoration and preservation
Cedar Creek Winery, also known as Martin’s Lane Winery: Okanagan winery integrated into the hillside

Situated on the hills above Lake Okanagan, this winery was designed to interact with two key physical elements: the topography of the land and the flow of gravity, which is vital to the winemaking process.
The entire rectangular structure is made up of two sections that are fractured down the middle: the production side of the building follows the gentle slope of the hillside, while the visitor side is oriented to the horizon and offers panoramic views of both the vineyards beside and the lake below.
Oversized glass and vast pivot doors are utilized throughout the 34,800 square feet of the building, bringing together office, laboratory and manufacturing areas with visitor walkways, tasting room and dining room. As occupants explore the interior spaces, they are simultaneously offered intimate glimpses of the winemaking process as well as stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
