who we are

40th anniversary logo

Directions In Design Inc. provides comprehensive design services that touch all stages of life.

Designing health facilities for infants and toddlers gave our team a new perspective on how the right design can uplift spirits and bring hope to those dealing with a family health crisis.

In the same fashion, our Seniors need respect, comfort, and safety in a community designed for their retirement years.

Our Designers can guide you through any type of residential or commercial project.
