I am the lead designer, and President of Ellergodt Design. I graduated from the SAIT Architectural Technologies program in 1986, and spent a number of years working my way up the ranks in the field of home design in Calgary and Vancouver.
In 2003 with a young family to support, I left the security of my 9-5 job (and a dental plan) and Ellergodt Design was born. Making the decision to venture out on my own was definitely one of those “jump before you’re ready” experiences, but one that both my wife Carol and I felt was necessary.
I have worked almost exclusively with a residential focus for the past 34 years, designing single-family and semi-detached homes, high-end renovations and a variety of multi-family projects. I am fueled by a passion for creative, innovative, client-focused, and when possible, sustainable design. My objective is to genuinely help you ‘find your way home’ through a personalized and collaborative custom design process, ensuring that the design we create truly meets your unique lifestyle needs.
I have established myself as one of Calgary’s premiere home designers, and have spent my career making connections and building relationships with an array of both homeowners and industry professionals. I have a keen interest in pursuing and implementing sustainable practices and am a LEED Accredited Professional, as well as a Certified Sustainable Building Advisor.
I believe that no matter the scope of your next building project, it all begins with excellent and personalized design. As stressful as it can be, designing a new home (of any size) really can be a fun and exciting experience, and I always aim to find that sweet spot where fun and expertise meet.
