Commercial and Residential Developments

Mehrzad Dadras is a very reliable, honest and exceptionally creative architect, with an excellent understanding of space. Dadras Architects developed our commercial (law office) space and made very creative suggestions (such as curved walls, custom doors, decorated ceilings etc.). Impressed with Mr. Dadras’ commitment to his projects and incredible attention to detail, we hired his firm to re-design and re-build our house.
We recommend him highly!

Thank you for your exceptional review of our quality design services Nikolay. This is a real 2 for 1 review and we would like to respond to it differently to show our sincere appreciation of clients who come back to us because of our honest professional service. All projects are surrounded by nuisances causing the golden triangle relationship between Client, Contractor, and the Architect becomes tarnished. With the law office project, all parties ended up broken-hearted. To say the least, we were surprised by the invitation to get involved in Nikolay’s house gut renovation but shortly after, we drank to a new partnership. Quickly, we started shedding our design experience into a new interior design focusing on a new residential elevator. At first, Jelena did not want to contaminate her open kitchen and master bedroom en-suite with a manly oriented elevator but at the end, she didn’t mind it at all. The design was rather quick and easy since we did several site reviews analyzing the space limitations versus the client’s wish list. I am guessing that many would be curious about this comment that architects always start with recognizing the limitations in order to discover the opportunities space will provide to be programmed. The other way around will bring desperation. We also like to send special thanks to Nikolay who understood that the house belongs to the lady and her voice should be the loudest. We all followed the happy wife-the happy life slogan and we all are good.

Mid Rise Condo Building - Residential

Dadras Architects took over the architectural design of our project after issues with a previous architect. Mehrzad was knowledgeable and quick to respond. He found solutions to complex issues is a very challenging project. I would recommend him for architectural design ranging from straight forward to complicated projects.

We would like to thank Green Hill for their strong support provided here. We are particularly grateful for the recognition of the real challenges with this project and the phrase “complex issues”. To make that phrase more precise we mentioned many times during the design and construction phases that this land was too small for the proposed building. It may seem impossible or rather funny but that was true and to everybody’s astonishment we completed the design and construction of that project successfully. This project had many unique aspects to it. To start with, the city of Oakville did not have that much experience with condominium design so we had to help them with the Ontario Building Code to review our own project. The other aspect of this project was that we did not use steel structure but structural studs which is very new in Canada. We created a detail shop drawing to coordinate the engineering panelling design with the site. That added many hours of project coordination in the office and on the site. I remember for the concrete ramp we couldn’t find large companies to pour the concrete ramp because of its complexities. So we took the challenge to draw a 3-dimensional shop drawing for it and go on site and collaborate with a small company to mark it, form it, and pour the concert for the ramp. I must say for this project, we were quite pumped up since it gave us many opportunities to pad ourselves in the back that we were able to test our creativity and say we did it again.

Commercial design

I, Gus Karbsi as developer worked with Mehrzad Dadras on the 5 Nipigon Project in Toronto, Ontario.
Mehrzad worked with us as a team member to bring a difficult project from the conceptual process through construction. The 5 Nipigon was a 2.2MM project that included 1 underground parking and two levels of offices above. The site was tight with many design challenges from start. l was involved with Mehrzad during the design, planning approval, building permit, and construction phase. Mehrzad worked with the City of North York to resolve some very complicated issues leading up to the building permit within a short period of time. During the course of construction, he worked with us to coordinate design changes with the construction process and authorities.
I would like to express our confidence in Mehrzad and our desire to work with him and his team on future projects.

Thank you for your wonderful review provided. I must say that there are always challenges with every project we do however as I always say to my clients that they should not underestimate their role in the success of their project.
In 5 Nipigon case, we went through the planning stage within 5 months and permit process shortly after which by any standard was a miracle. It is very true that we paid our undivided attention to this project at the time but the success of our concerted effort was the client attitude who lend us his ears and listened and acted to our effective strategy and timing. The job of an architect is not just solving special or technical problems related to the building but coach the owners to become problem solvers on their own. Thanks again for recommending our service it was a pleasure to work with you.

Pharmacy & Medical Clinic

Before we met Mehrzad, we have been working with another architectural firm and we were not satisfied with their high ego and receptiveness.
Dadras Architects at the get-go created a comfort zone for us to express our ideas and plan for our pharmacy and medical office. Mehrzad told us that he listens and give us the best options and then the final decision is ours.
We finished the permit drawings quickly and started the interior design process visiting the site numerous times to review the design and make decisions for the final layout and finishes.
During the construction, Mehrzad reviewed the contractor's work diligently double checking site measurements, color selections, and finish material selections.
We would like to thank Dadras architects for their excellent service.

Thanks so much for the review. The pharmacy and medical center is looking amazing. I truly enjoyed working with your family to design this place of your family business. We started with a greater ambition and I love the simplicity of the interior we achieved in the end. We spent many hours to review and fine-tuning the spaces and their functions. We truly believe establishing a productive customer relationship starts with listening to clients needs and understanding the technical issues to realize their dreams. We work together patiently to balance the business functional needs with the financials, timing, spacial and legal limitations at hand. We come out successful with the best possible options to your satisfaction. Again, thanks for your supportive review.

Jimmy, Thank you for your fantastic review. it was a pleasure working with you and your family. I enjoyed the process of working on the 2 projects. First, we started planning to sever the land and build two detached houses and then the neighbor was not going to give a green light and we changed our plan to substantial renovation and extension. I am also pleased that everything worked out and you were satisfied with our design services and the final result. It is very satisfying to hear such a nice appreciation of our services from a satisfied client. Thank you for your feedback.

Design New Layout for Existing Home and New Addition

When we sought out an architect to redesign our 1950’s bungalow, I knew Mehrzad was the one I wanted to work with from the start. At first glance of the property, not only had he voiced some of the same concerns and ideas that I had in my head about the renovation… he had also offered up many new, forward thinking ideas and details that I did not even think of. I knew at that moment that Dadras Architects would be the firm for us.

Mehrzad’s skills and attention to detail impressed us throughout the design process. The initial concepts, detailed drawings, plans and miniature models really helped us to envision the final product. His knowledge and links to other industry professionals are helping us to realize our dream sooner rather than later and although we have not started to build as yet, I can’t wait to get started.

I would recommend Dadras Architects to anyone looking for a firm that is professional, inventive, timely and customer-focused. His attentiveness to our needs and our project is similar to if he was working on his own home. I know the final product is going to be spectacular!

office design & office furniture design

The transformation of my office was amazing!

Mr. Dadras designed a space for intervierwing clients. This included changing the floors and colouring the patterned and textured walls and designed custom furniture to suit the space and function of the office!
In creating a bean shaped granite desk with matching leather seatings, and in front of the existing picture window designing shelvings to display glass objects in cubicles which were illuminated by light, my office became the most visited office in the company. Everything turned out better than ever immagined! Mr. Dadras does huge projects as well as smaller ones applying equal care and professionalism. I recommend Mr. Dadras and know him to be an excellent architect with brilliant ideas.
