Heather began her career with a Bachelor Degree of Interior Design at Ryerson University. This taught her how to create high quality technical and presentation drawings, material boards, and spatial layouts. Her curiosity for formal experimentation and material effects led her to pursue a Master’s Degree of Architecture, which she has completed at the University of Calgary. This combination of education has allowed her to understand and manipulate how interior and exterior conditions can influence and augment each other. Heather has recently completed her exams and is now a fully licensed architect!

Born in South Africa, Selmarie moved to Canada at a young age and grew up immersed in sports, music, and art. She attended Abbotsford Senior Secondary’s IB program shortly after the school completed renovations. The results inspired Selmarie to pursue interior design—hoping she may have the chance to eventually work with the firm behind the new design. It just so happened that the firm was SOA!
After high school, Selmarie went on to earn her bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from KPU’s Wilson School of Design. It was during her fourth-year design thesis that she cemented her interest in designing for education. Selmarie values the importance of the design process itself, and has developed a keen interest in pushing the boundaries of education design. Her work reflects her background by consistently incorporating colour, patterns, and unique design solutions.
Selmarie is currently working towards writing her NCIDQ to become a Registered Interior Designer, as well as her WELL AP accreditation. Her favourite activities include sketching, rendering, cycling, running, and exploring the outdoors with her puppy Zeebee.

Irene set up an interior design and architecture company in Kyiv, Ukraine in 2016. She learned about international design standards and trends through her work on projects in Ukraine and other countries including Japan, Pakistan, the UK and Norway. Irene was born and raised in Ukraine and moved to Canada in 2022 due to the war. She has three degrees in the fields of Fine Arts and Interior Design. Her goal is to become a registered Interior Designer in BC.
Irene has been fascinated by art since early childhood and was enrolled in an art school at the age of 10. Her work has been showcased at various art exhibitions in Ukraine. She was attracted to interior design because designers can create beautiful and functional spaces that people love to experience and return to.
Irene enjoys music and plays the piano. She also has a lifelong love of sports, including tennis, cycling, hiking, skating and snowboarding. She loves to overcome her fears and challenge herself.
