KATE FAIRWEATHER, owner of Design 209, is an architectural designer with 35 years of experience with a focus on residential design projects. The studio was opened in 2012 in response to a growing need for design assistance between the client and the contractor. Kate’s design niche is to provide the client a more simple response to their project needs. Extensive drawings are often not necessary and can be very expensive. Schematic design sketches may be enough when the contractor needs direction on how to respond to your renovation. Kate can also help you solve your design challenges by getting to know you and your space. She will sketch available options with you, taking in to account your budget, your style and the level of work that needs to be done to accomplish the desired result. Kate can recommend a contractor to do the work, or work with yours to see the project to finish. Kate can also assist you with sourcing products and will custom design products to fit your needs.
In 2014, Kate became a dealer for Architect’s Millshop Cabinetry. Through this relationship she provides a high quality cabinet for a reasonable cost to further enhance her projects. Kate also works with local small cabinet builders to round out her offerings.
Over recent years, Kate has had many successful projects including complete house redesigns, exterior facade enhancements, kitchens and bathrooms, basement rec rooms, wet bars and specialty cabinetry and shelving, master suites, closet interiors, garages and sheds, patios, decks and hardscapes, and more… No project is too big or too small!
