Good Design is Good Business

Small Design with big success


The store is located in the North end of Waterloo where low rise, mix-use buildings have commercial street façades. There is a high school across the street which provides more potential for business opportunities. The gross foot print is larger than 600 sq. m., which means any work or changes need to have an architect involved.

The biggest challenge for this project was accomplishing multi occupancies within proper building code requirements. JMA not only participated in the interior design, but also designed the mechanical and electrical for the client to save money. 

JMA's goal towards small businesses is to help clients to not dig a “hole” for themselves even though sometimes they already have many "holes" when they start making business plans. 

Good design = Good business and that is our goal.
