Chad

CEO and Creative Director

 

 

 

My passion for design started as a little boy when helping my father and grandfather build homes on Vancouver Island.

 

I remember helping my father lay carpet and put up walls in new developments in Victoria neighborhoods. We would sit together and draft blueprints as I learnt the basics of the architecture and design development process. I became so engrained in the love for structure that I knew one day I wanted to be a designer of purpose.

 

My motivation for design continued in high school where at 18 I won a small block award for my Miami- inspired dream home drafting creation and achieved the highest marks and recognition in my Interior Design class. In September 2013 I began my Interior Design educational journey. I obtained my Interior Design Diploma (D.I.D.) at the Visual College of Art and Design and won the Best in Show at our Graduation Portfolio Show in April 2016. 

 

Today I reflect on my progress, my style and my inspirations and I see the designer I’ve become. Through my natural ability to take a blank canvas and create something incredible to my simplistic concrete and wood themed design, I have developed into a highly motivated, engaged and inspired designer ready to take on the interior design and architecture industry and place my name as a design stamp.

 

Let the next chapter of my journey commence.

CAD Tech and Rendering Specialist

 

I have always wanted to be a creator, exploring different outlooks of self expression.

 

However, in the professional environment, I have never truly felt like a creator. Growing up, I was under the impression that my career had to be practical and contribute to society in a meaningful way, which led me to pursue an undergraduate degree in civil engineering. I thought that creativity was mostly relevant to the entertainment industry, until I discovered the field of interior design.

 

Design is the best of both worlds – it allows me to explore my imagination, while contributing to the betterment of society. Many aspects of this profession have captivated me, namely improving the physical environment and spatial experiences for people.

 

It is a pleasure to be working with the Chad Schmuland Design team. Everyone here is very passionate in creating their designs and I am happy to create the renderings and technical drawings for such a wide variety of beautiful projects.

“A well-designed space depends on each project’s unique vision and needs”.

 

Design is about more than buildings and designing interior and exterior spaces; it is finding the harmony between function and aesthetics. I am motivated by seeing a project that reflects the people it’s designed for through details, materials, textures, and colours.

 

With a perspective of working as an architect and designer in residential and retail projects, I have been participating in the design process, from the initial concept through design development and the working drawings stages. My knowledge about interior design has improved in developing efficient and practical spaces for the well-being of their occupants.

 

Being part of Chad Schmuland Design has been the most inspiring work experience from an integrated perspective within innovative and creative teamwork.

Order Management Specialist

 

 

I have loved architecture and interior design since I was little.

 

I'm originally from Brazil, and I remember drawing floorplans in the sand at the beach and spending the day living in my "house". When I grew up and it was time to decide what I wanted to do for university architecture was an easy choice.

 

After getting my bachelor's degree in 2012, I spent the following years gathering work experience, focusing on environmental sustainability and the project management aspects of the job. To complement my education, I recently finished a post-degree diploma in project management.

 

One of my favorite aspects of interior design is that you can help bring joy and functionality to a fundamental part of someone's life, their house. For me, helping someone achieve their dream space is a big responsibility but also a pleasure.

 

I'm glad to be working alongside such a great team at Chad Schmuland Design and to be part of the process of finding the best items while meeting the client's budget, schedule, and expectations. We work hard to deliver beautiful spaces with an experience that is as stress-free as possible.
