Full Gut Old Home in Toronto

Peter of Lattag Studio was extremely helpful at every stage of what turned to be a very very complicated project. I was gutting a large 70 year old home and needed someone to provide the right plans and know-how to make the home open concept, modern and functional for my family and I. Peter patiently answered every question. He did a ton of revisions (sorry Peter!) because I regularly changed my mind. Even after the permits were received and the job completed, he still helped me out by drawing a helpful sketch in a matter unrelated to the scope of his retainer.
Peter ended up being right every time. His rate was competitive. He understands everything there is to know about building/renovating a home - from underpinning to the roof and everything in between.
He was quite simply a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend! understands everything there is to know about building/renovating a home - from underpinning to the roof and everything in between.
He was quite simply a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!

Basement Legalization

I highly recommend working with LATTAG Studio. Peter was at all times professional, courteous, timely and responsive. We purchased our home with a basement that had been finished by the previous owner, but was not up to code. In order for us to rent it out legally, we engaged the help of LATTAG Studio to prepare architectural drawings, and take care of the full permit application process from start to finish. When we were looking for architects, most either didn't want to take this job ("just rent it out, everyone does it that way") or quoted outrageously high fees citing how difficult this process is. Peter of LATTAG Studio took his time to explain the process to us in detail, and provided a fair and reasonable price. Peter spent half a day in our home to complete all measurements, and educated us on areas of particular concern or that might lead to complication or additional costs later on. He was at all times transparent and addressed all our questions. He dealt with the city for our permit application and minor variance application, and attended the hearing. We got our permit approved in a timely and cost efficient manner, and are very happy with the work Peter has done. We will definitely be engaging LATTAG Studio again if we need an architect on a future project.

Architectural drawings to expand and reconfigure home

Peter is a real visionary with an incredible ability to identify the most efficient use of limited space. He helped us overcome an architectural
challenge that everyone else told us was not possible. We have a modestly sized 3 bedroom side split raised bungalow that we wanted to renovate to have 4 children's bedrooms on the same level and expand the size of the kitchen and living room dramatically. We had another drafts person prepare some drawings but in order to get the 4 bedrooms on the same level we would lose a large chunk of our backyard to a rear addition. We were never quite comfortable with the design and my wife found Peter online when she was looking for a second opinion. Peter came out to our home and reviewed the drawing with us. He spent quite a lot of time with us that day. He had some ideas but would need to give it some more thought. He urged us to discard the drawings we had and if we wanted him to he was confident he could come up with something much more efficient that would be less expensive to build and would not have us losing so much of the back yard. The drawings he came back with were incredible. His design included a small extension to a portion of the front of the house, added a second level above the lower level to accommodate 4 bedrooms and two bathrooms and most impressively reconfigured the existing interior space of the home in a way that made it so much more usable and efficient. We were blown away. Others had told us it was impossible to make a second story addition to a side split raised bungalow like ours work. Maintaining the majority of the exterior walls would eliminate a logistical problem and the cost of excavating in the rear of our property and allowed us to preserve our backyard. He showed us two possible styles for the front facade and exterior of the home, one that maintained the existing 60's modern low grade roof sloping style and another with a more contemporary style seen in many new model homes today. Both were beautiful, but my wife had seen a newly built home with a particular style she had found especially attractive. We took a picture of the home and sent it to Peter. He made some changes to the exterior plans to follow the styling of the home in the picture and did an amazing job. We love the design. Peter got us the minor variance we needed and has completed the permit drawings and has filed the permit application for us. He has been very easy to talk to and communicate with. He is very patient and his fees at each stage have been reasonable and a very good value. We have been very pleased with Peter throughout and we have recommended him to other family and friends.

Garage

First of all I’d like to say that it will be hard to find someone with better customer service then Peter. I did some renovations to my existing garage and at the time I didn’t know that I needed to apply for a permit. Once I finished my garage the city came knocking at my door telling me that I needed to get a permit. I called around 20 architects and by far he was the only one that was professional and knowledgeable. Once I chose Peter he came to my home and we started the process. It took us around 3 months to get the permit and I was a little worried thinking that the city would make me tear down the garage but Peter kept me calm and reassured me that everything was going to be fine. Peter is a class act.

Third-floor addition

This is in reference to the planning and design of our third-floor addition which will replace the attic and existing roof with a new structure that will add living space with a full-height family room, and bathroom, as well as a roof-top terrace.

Right from the start, Lattag Studio was easy to communicate with and advised us on all the things we'd need to consider in the design, and (equally important) in the application process for the required building permits.

After an initial discussion on what we had in mind from a design perspective, Lattag Studio developed an initial concept that gave us a good idea of what our next structure would look like. With a few more tweaks, Lattag Studio's design turned out beautifully. Even our neighbors commented that the design was beautiful when they saw it as part of the Committee of Adjustment materials that were submitted.

During the permit application process, Lattag Studio took all the work off our hands. He even handled the process of going to Committee of Adjustment to get exceptions approved that were outside Toronto's building code.

It's now all set and done - we were issued our building permits last week!
We can highly recommend Lattag Studio to anyone who is thinking of making some changes to their house.

Kind regards,

Chris & Sina

Addition and complete gut

This letter is written with great pleasure, in reference to the work completed by Peter of LATTAG Studio Inc.

Our project entailed the building of an addition above the garage as well as a complete gut and remodeling of most of the original interior of our home.

Peter worked with us on the design, structure, HVAC, and plumbing. Because of Peter’s vast knowledge and diligence, it made our project fun and easy. Peter completed all the drawings in a timely fashion; with ease and poise.

After our permits were obtained, Peter did not forget about us. He reached out to help with referring very skilled contractors. Peter went beyond his hired scope of work to assist with our project. He worked with us every step of the way. When our town inspector needed clarification, Peter was available with answers to his questions. This made everything run smoothly and effortlessly.

Peter’s reliability and adaptability, created a stress free work environment and his project management skills enabled us to complete our project on schedule.

We strongly recommend Peter of LATTAG Studio to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable and reliable architect that serves his clients with honesty and integrity.

Great Work

My wife and I recently hired Peter to assist us with two major projects, and both times he's completely hit it out of the park. He's a man of his word and continuously goes above and beyond to ensure the client is totally happy. He's responsive and always engaged. Would highly recommend LATTAG Studio Inc. to anyone seeking an architect.

Architectural Drawings and Interior Design

With a growing family and a modest sized home, my wife and I made the decision to underpin and finish our basement. Once we engaged an underpinning company, we were introduced to Peter and engaged LATTAG Studio to complete the architectural drawings for underpinning. Our underpinner highly recommended that we proceed with LATTAG for the basement finishing drawings, as well – a recommendation that we took, and are very glad that we did.

From our first meeting, Peter was engaging, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. We could tell from Day 1 that he had a real passion for his work. Our knowledge of construction projects and home renovation is limited, so Peter took the time to educate us. He made sure that we understood everything that was going to be happening throughout the course of our renovation, and was always available to answer any questions that we had.

What we enjoyed most about working with Peter is that not only did he produce a strong product, but his response time to any phone calls or emails was almost immediate. It was not uncommon for us to receive an email from Peter on a weekend, or late at night. To us, this really shows Peter’s commitment to his clients and their satisfaction. Peter always kept us informed of any issues that arose, and was receptive to new design ideas that came up throughout the process. Even if he didn’t agree with our ideas, Peter would always state his opinion so that in the end, we could make an informed decision.

Peter is very knowledgeable when it comes to municipal by-laws and Ontario building code. Additionally, his experience with the City of Toronto and the building permit process proved to be invaluable. Peter showed great patience with us as clients, brought tremendous expertise to the planning and design phase and worked very collaboratively with us to ensure that we got what we wanted, without sacrificing anything from an architectural design standpoint.

We are so appreciative that we were referred to LATTAG Studio, and thoroughly enjoyed working with Peter and his team. We would highly recommend LATTAG’s services for any of your architectural/interior design needs.
