When everything is connected for better or worse, everything matters - Bruce Mau

"So design like you give a damn since we have the tools to do and build better"

Meet Dora . . . 

"I became the managing Partner with MQN Interiors in 2010, bringing to the table over 20+ years of experience as an accredited Interior Design professional and is a Registered Interior Designer with IDIBC. I achieved my BA in Interior Design at KPU after a Dip in Business at UFV. My Interior Design skills are complimented by my business education and even-keel management skills. Over the years, I've acquired experience in various facets of sustainable commercial and residential design projects across Canada and abroad. I'm a LEED accredited professional and I'm currently studying for Passive House certification which fuels my passion to bring an environmentally sustainable focus to all projects. I thrive on developing heightened spatial experiences that improve the way we work, play and connect with our community and planet. On the home front, becoming a parent of a vibrant 11yr old, has given her me perspective and finessed my exploration with play & compassion. I value relationships above all and treat our team like family and ensure that a healthy work-life balance is maintained by everyone."
