Sam and I have worked head to head for over 10 years while we each represented different prominent real estate developers in Montreal. During that time we became good friends and realized that we can do a lot of good if we joined forces.. Sam and I each have our own skill sets but we also have several attributes in common such as an enormous work ethic and exceptional discipline. We are both great at communicating our message. His attention to detail and numbers compliment my sometimes crazy, eccentric ideas and takes them from a dream and brings them down to so we can make them reality. I couldn’t think of a better partner.
Mike and I have known each other for a long time… there’s even a picture of us together at a Christmas party 12-13 years ago… who would’ve known. It’s a story of us being competitors for about a decade. I’d walk into a pitch while he would be walking out or vice versa. I’d win some, him others, from there a mutual respect grew and then a friendship. After that we decided to try our hands at working together. We quickly realized that we were both worlds apart in our specific skill sets and that reinforced how well we could work together. We could complement each other. Going off on my own was never an option. I wanted someone who I could see eye to eye with, that I respect and admire, someone who I can entrust my personal and financial safety to and that’s Mike.

In the words of office design consultant and author Francis Duffy, “The office building is one of the great icons of the twentieth century. Office towers dominate the skylines of cities in every continent… [As] the most visible index of economic activity, of social, technological, and financial progress, they have come to symbolize much of what this century has been about.”
At Rosefellow.., our approach is simple, direct and effective. We apply our knowledge and understanding of the industry to develop the ideal office building designed for our clients. Our business structure enables us to complete projects ranging in size and scope.
With our team you can be assured that your project is delivered and managed correctly and professionally.
Rosefellow.. designs sustainable building systems that include cooling towers; floor-by-floor air handling units; high-efficiency, gas-fired hot water boilers; and high-performance plumbing fixtures that provide a 35 percent reduction in potable water use. These systems allow the flexibility to have several different businesses within one building while providing maximum occupant comfort. Tech tenants have substantial requirements for power, data, and cooling, so the systems allow for significant future expansion to satisfy these tenants. Temperature control and the production of some of its energy are accomplished in an environmentally friendly manner. Insulated glazing reduces thermal loss, lowering energy consumption and increasing transparency. Carbon dioxide sensors signal increased fresh air ventilation, when elevated levels of carbon dioxide are detected in the building. Conditioned air for the occupants is provided by multiple air column units located in the tenant space. The cooling system produces and stores ice during off-peak hours and allows the ice to melt to help cool the building. Water conservation features in the buildings include waterless urinals.
Creating buildings that use technology to achieve an unprecedented level of resource efficiency, but also create a collaborative work environment in tune with its users. LED panels with sensors that track motion, light, temperature and humidity, creating a unique artificial neural network.
Apps connected to the building which direct you to parking stalls, find your free desk and caters to your preference in lighting and temperature.
The design of the buildings makes them environmentally friendly, using technologies such as floor-to-ceiling insulated glazing to contain heat and maximize natural light and automatic daylight dimming systems. The office buildings also feature greywater systems, which captures rainwater for reuse. Air entering the buildings are filtered, as is common, but the air exhausted is cleaned as well. The buildings are designed to obtain LEED Certification.
The key features that make for a collaborative office space:
Ultimately, the main concern is people, whom a building is meant to provide shelter and comfort. Durability, convenience, beauty. A place and the surroundings. They all need to be taken into consideration. Ultimately, however, it is (also) the atmosphere prevailing in and around a building, the mood that it evokes, that decides whether it is popular, even loved – or not.
The core criteria for good apartment interior design is well considered internal planning and providing all the functionality and livability of a house, albeit within a smaller space. It is crucial that every nook and square foot of floor space be utilized, but without cramming.
Quality construction and materials are critical to good apartments. It’s about longevity and standing the test of time.
At Rosefellow.. we design apartments that minimize corridor areas in favor of larger flexible living spaces and bedrooms that can comfortably accommodate queen-sized beds.
The apartments come with thoughtful features, such as study, fitness, lounge, pool areas and recharge stations for electronic devices, and ample kitchen storage. These elements work well, as they are integrated into the overall planning, and not random additions that compromise the spaces.
At Rosefellow.. we understand that creating a sense of community and ownership of the building is a great thing, as it is the owners who become proud of the building and takes care of it.
Good apartment design has the power to positively impact on residents’ mental health. That’s why we focus on creating spaces where people want to live, and where they enjoy spending time.
Our team is committed to design and quality. The integrity of our product is key – not just to us, but to the person living and using the space at the other end.
