Architectural and Interior Design
for your Island Lifestyle


About Us

Don and Bonnie Ward

Established by Don and Bonnie Ward on Orcas Island in 1988, Designward provides architectural and interior design for clients in the San Juan Islands and northwestern Washington State.

Listening to and understanding our clients' needs is the starting point in all of our projects. We assist them in developing and defining their project -- whether planning a new home, remodeling their existing home, adding a new kitchen or bathroom, or providing new interior furnishings.

The design process begins by determining how our clients wish to live in their home. Defining these needs begins the process of space planning (we design from the inside out) so that the home functions and feels the way our clients have envisioned it.

We use a state-of-the-art 3D computer modeling system from the conceptual stage to the final plans, so that we literally build the house on the computer. This allows the designer and the client to actually see the house inside and out in three dimensions before the first nail is ever driven, and of course, make any desired changes as the design process proceeds. Look at our portfolio and the clients' comments to see how this approach has worked for others.
