Our vision is vast, but grounded in the microcosm of you.
... In their own words
"We loved working with Les Ensembliers, Maxime and Richard were able to create the home we wanted and more! Their team was professional, efficient, transparent and readily available to answer any of our questions or concerns. Their integrated approach along with their commitment to quality work, took away a lot of the stress that is typically involved in renovations. But the best part is the end result, our house is a collection of memories and special things that Les Ensembliers made into a beautiful home."
-S. Diamond & M. Turcotte
"Richard et son équipe nous ont créé une véritable oasis de paix à la campagne. Tout y est soigneusement choisi, et chaque endroit où notre regard se pose reflète douceur et luminosité.
Ils ont imaginé un espace resplendissant et intime à la fois. Nous sommes toujours très heureux de s’y retrouver en famille."
"What sets Les Ensembliers apart is the balance in the services offered, from the drawing up of the project to it's completion. Through their vision, creativity, quality expectation and commitment to Customer satisfaction, Les Ensembliers stand above the rest. Thank you to the entire team."
“We discovered in them their passion, talent, honesty and availability. They were able to surround themselves with devoted design and construction site teams that proudly adhere to their values and mission. In short, they are rigorous professionals with a refreshing creativity that strive in meeting the challenges encountered with success and without compromise. We thank them for this.”
- Mr. & Mrs. Gérin
“We are very pleased to have chosen you and your entire team at Les Ensembliers to have built our home. We had a vision of what we wanted, and through your professional expertise and wonderful attention to detail and design, you have been able to successfully achieve this for us. Thanks to all of you, for your hard work and commitment.”
– Rosemary and Mel Hoppenheim
“We found a very old heritage home that was in dire need of tender loving care and vision. As original plans were not available, the team had to do research and be very creative to bring out the good bones and tremendous character of this fine Queen Anne home. Working with Les Ensembliers we created a jewel. The restoration and renovation of our beautiful home could not have been done with such elegance and so quickly by any other team; they really ‘got it’ and delivered a fabulous easy living home!”
– Nancy Cummings-Gold and Marc Gold
“We thank our lucky stars for having found Les Ensembliers. With them, the normally stressful experience of renovating a home has been made into a pleasure. More than an architecture, design and construction firm, they are a service-oriented enterprise in which every employee seems to think about the customer experience first. Condo board approvals, city permits and ‘neighbor management’ during construction were all equally well handled by them. So pleased are we with the results and the process, we’ve immediately begun working on a second home project together.”
– Andrea W. & Mathieu L-A.
"Working with Les Ensembliers is a one-of-a-kind experience in Montreal. It starts with Maxime and Richard welcoming us and helping define a renovation project from start to finish. Then, they handle everything! They are assisted by a wonderful team, always available to answer questions and to help explain the work in progress. And nothing is impossible. We always feel reassured. We really appreciated that this project was “ours” and that it met all our expectations… and even more!"
– Dorothée and Arnaud.
“Our experience with Les Ensembliers was most satisfying. In addition to having highly talented people, there is a culture of quality of work and attention to detail that is unparalleled. They carefully assessed our needs and expectations, while openly and respectfully raising questions when necessary. In the end, our dealings with them allowed us to bring to realization a vision we had for our home that combines a careful balance between sophistication and originality that we are very proud of.”
– Tania Dupont and Éric Michaud
“Your collaboration on space and design is absolutely unique. Once drafted, plans are executed in a systematic and detailed fashion throughout the project. Deadlines are respected and organization is impeccable, while thorough planning ensures minimization of unexpected risks. Our requests and interactions with Emilie were always met in a very timely and collaborative fashion. Emilie was fantastic in ensuring we were kept on schedule and abreast of all relevant aspect of the project’s progress.
Les Ensembliers provide an absolutely top class offering with vision and execution which minimizes stress and significantly reduces uncertainty on time and budget of a project. For those that value high quality work and vision with unparalleled execution, they are a perfect fit. This is our second project with them, and we will continue to enthusiastically recommend them to our friends.”
– Sophie and Kelly
“Just a quick note to express my appreciation for a job well done. We all want our homes to be as comfortable as possible where we will feel a certain warmth coming back to, day after day. We are astonished by the work accomplished by your team and wish to sincerely thank you. You understood our needs and helped us realize our dreams. You are visionaries full of brilliant ideas. Congratulations to your entire team.”
– Dyane Perreault
“I met Richard and his team at Les Ensembliers last summer when we bought our condo in Old Montreal. I was so impressed with their professionalism and ease in meeting with them. They were quick to understand our style and manage our expectation on timeline for delivery. Efficient and quality in their work is how I would describe them. They take the extra step and go beyond designing our condo. A few months they were inspecting our condo after they had a painter paint the walls of the condo and one of the designers noticed a leak. She immediately contacted me and brought in an expert to try identify the source of leak. I have worked with a few designers in the past, by far Les Ensembliers has been the best so far. Looking forward to having them complete designing our home in Houston!”
– Hala Ahmad
“Richard and Maxime knew my house intimately as they completely renovated it and designed it down to the interior furnishings. They actually previously owned the house and lived in it. So when I had a significant fire that required reconstruction and design, I knew who I would call first, Les Ensembliers. Their integration of reconstruction and design allowed me to have one stop to discuss and coordinate all matters related to the complete renovation of my home. They take a holistic, fresh approach to a project and are not hostage to previous design elements or layout. Everything is “white boarded” where they can express their vision and
execute what they like to call the WOW factor. I know that those that see the results echo the WOW sentiment and perceive a refined aesthetic with an attention to quality. Their team does not succumb to a cookie cutter look or design. They create a feeling and flow that is unique and enduring. They stand by their work and have been responsive to any required follow up and trouble shooting. Do not hire them if you are looking for ordinary. They don’t do ordinary. ”
– Danny Ritter
“In 2017 I was considering purchasing a new condominium and wanted advice as to what design and decoration might be required. I immediately went to Les Ensembliers because of my prior knowledge of their expertise and customer friendly professional commitment to achieving goals jointly established. I could not be happier with the final result in their assistance in creating a home that is warm and always a great joy for me to live in and be able to welcome family and friends.”
– Lynn Douglas
''We have been working with Les Ensembliers for many years, over many projects. When we first started our partnership, we had just bought our new house. They helped us turned it into our home. As busy as they are, they always made us feel like we were their only client.
They put their creative minds to the service of our vision and not only did they meet our expectations, but far exceeded them. We have now partnered with them on three separate, very distinct projects and ever single one was a resounding success. I hope they outlived us so we can continue our journey together!''
