We are the true definition of a residential design-build firm.
We are as accountable to the progressive design of our work as we are to the quality of its construction.

Throw back to Rectangle’s first project

More than 10 years ago an amazing man believed in a little startup design/build firm when he entrusted us to do a full renovation of his family home in Pumphill. That project received a ton of attention and in many ways started our career. A lot has changed in Calgary over the...

Luxury Home Renovations in Calgary
Rectangle is a Calgary-based design-build firm offering a broad range of services. We are well-versed in new urban homes, major renovations, additions, commercial spaces, and tenant improvements. The advantages of a design-build firm show through our ability to navigate City Bylaws and Building Code regulations, our clean, seamless permit applications, our great designs, and our efficient execution of the construction process, consistently delivering a superior product. We pride ourselves on our great design sensibility – we are the cool kids, on top of the latest trends, and dreaming up the next big thing. As a result, our projects always stand out from the rest.

About Us

ideas

Rectangle is a company that always puts ideas first. We pride ourselves on creating smart, custom ideas that reinvent a space to work with and for you. We firmly believe that the best solutions are simple solutions but when you are updating a space that has been created for a different generation and a different world, simple can be far from obvious. Rectangle works with you to understand your needs and create a space that is both functional and stunning.

design

After looking through our portfolio, it will become quite clear that design sets Rectangle apart. We find inspiration for our work in the timeless clean lines of modernism, but work with our clients to ensure the end product reflects their taste. Staying on top of new design trends, and being mindful of scale and use of space, we live by Mies’ philosophy that 'form follows function'.

construction

Rectangle is one of the few companies that takes care of the planning, architecture, design and construction of a project. It is this continuity that allows us to produce a superior product. We are obsessed with carrying out our designs through our construction process, finishing each project the way it was intended. We understand that ‘God is in the details’, and no details are missed. We work with the same trades on all our projects, who understand our process and expected level of quality, and carry proper licensing and warranty, and employ qualified in-house construction staff who monitor the progress of each project.
