ARTium Design Build is one of three Ottawa winners at this year’s Canadian Home Builders’ Association Awards

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Thank you Patrick Langston and All Things Home for this great piece. 

The ART House by ARTium Design Build captured the renovation award in the whole house category, $150,000 to $300,000. The project was rooted in a desire to create a loft studio look where the client’s daily life and extensive art collection intertwined. To do that, ARTium opened up the entire first floor with an open plan, resulting in a visual flow from back to front, as well as updating the staircase and replacing the second-floor framing system.

“One of the directives from our client was to create an open studio-like space to display art, and I think we achieved that,” says ARTium’s president, Norm Lecuyer.

Reno Tour: GOHBA shows off seven homes to inspire your dreams

On October 14, seven Ottawa-area homes are opening their doors to the public for the fourth annual Reno Tour. A fundraiser by the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association (GOHBA) in support of Habitat for Humanity—to date they’ve raised $10,000— this event is a great way to meet with qualified renovators to learn how you can turn visions for your home into reality. But it’s more than a meet-and-greet fundraiser. Giving back is built in to all aspects of the tour, with many of the renovators donating any and all materials they could from their demolition work to area Re-Store locations. In so many ways, this event is about building a stronger Ottawa community.

Deciding between a home remodel or buying new

Wednesday, August 08, 2018

‘It’s not all about cost. It’s about family, home and heart’ spoken from our own Norm Lecuyer. 

“The neighborhood you live in, the city you live in, the country you live in … this is your own little part of the world. That’s why you put a fence around (your home) and have grass. It’s your kingdom,” says Norm Lecuyer, owner of ARTium Design Build and Just Basements. “The people that come to us value that over the cost of moving or the cost of renovating.”

Finalist in GOHBA's 2017 Design Awards - ARTium's Country Kitchen with a Dash of Blue

ARTium Design Build's Ensuite Bath is a 2017 Finalist in the Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association - Housing Design Awards

Friday, September 08, 2017

This beautiful ensuite bathroom renovation is a finalist in the GOHBA 2017 Design Awards. 

White, clean and minimal was the vision for this bathroom.  The challenge was that it was in a traditional colonial style home.  Finding the balance between modern and traditional was achieved with the use of shaker-style white cabinetry - a staple for bridging the gap and making a new space feel like it belongs in its existing environment. The addition of a panel-front tub surround reinforced this concept and the space found it's balance somewhere between modern and traditional, with a hint more traditional.

The use of large scale porcelain tiles on the floor created a monolithic feel that is uncluttered and dramatic.  Repeating these large scale tiles on the wall behind the vanity and throughout the shower achieved the same level of drama - proving that sometimes less is truly more.
