zaxis modern offers design-build services as well as architectural and interior design, furniture design and project management services in the Greater Toronto Area.

With a focus on both design and construction, zaxis modern offers an integrated solution under one roof. Our design-build model enables the design process to be fully aligned with the construction process, from conception to completion. This approach enables us to be more innovative, incorporating unconventional details and use of materials. The design-build model offers greater accountability than the traditional architect-client relationship as we are ultimately responsible for bringing the design to fruition. This results in more effective time and cost management, without compromising the integrity of the design. zaxis modern has over 10 years of experience with the design-build process.
