Principal Interior Designer


Claire Gudmanz has always had a natural aptitude for interior design as she redecorated her childhood bedroom every few months. At first she only saw this as a hobby, but once she had her degree in psychology from UBC, she allowed herself to follow her passion and turn her hobby into a career. After completing the Interior Design Diploma program at BCIT and working with three successful residential and multi-family design firms, she decided it was time to carve her own path.

Claire exudes charisma and professionalism in all of her Interior Design endeavours. Claire has worked on a multitude of varied projects including high-end homes, multi-family residences and commercial spaces including LEED and Built Green projects. Claire is not afraid of a challenge and enjoys pushing the creative boundaries of design all while working within her client’s budgetary constraints.
