Client Reviews

I wept my way through the Pier 21 Refugee Exhibition in Halifax today. It was one of the best exhibitions at a museum that I have seen. And it is the biggest honour of my life to be amongst the six refugees chosen for the "outstanding contributions to Canada" section. Thank you.

I have had the pleasure and privilege of working with your company, Bouwdesign, for about ten years now. The most recent project being the design/build of the From Earth to Us gallery in our new museum. Each time was not only productive and extremely professional but also fun and very creative. Your designs are simply exquisite and our visitors can never have enough of your immersive experiences and inviting spaces. I have rarely worked with such a dedicated firm and flexible and accommodating creators who are always willing to go the extra mile to ensure the delivery of the best product possible. I would work with you any day.

Bouwdesign delivered the professionalism that we were looking for in the design of our inaugural exhibition that opened the new Ottawa Art Gallery. Their ideas for artwork display and delivery of wayfinding and didactic information were innovative and stylish.

Catherine Sinclair

Senior Curator, Ottawa Art Gallery

It is a pleasure to work with Sunniva and her team. Designing exhibitions on natural resources, such as Potash: Feeding the World, and From Earth to Us, is not a simple task. Bouwdesign always approaches the subjects with enthusiasm. The team offers design solutions that are creative, interactive, and engaging. Bouwdesign makes the design-build process smooth and consistently delivers high quality work.

Anna Adamek

Great, dynamic design with attention to creativity, details and feasibility. Some research and development was done successfully for new products. Great communication of intentions, very good listener and great ability to organize and work with client.

Daniéle Goulet

Project Manager, Toles School House and India the Living Arts Canadian Museum of History

May I thank you personally for your commitment and the excellence of your work. Your involvement as the main designer responsible for the development of nearly 20,000 square feet of space and exhibitions has been crucial to the success of the First People’s Hall. The quality of your work on this project can be added to that of the various exhibition designs you have done for CMC in the past. The exhibitions From Time Immemorial, Lost Visions, Forgotten Dreams, and Inuit and Englishmen, as well as the Exhibitions India, the Living Arts are fine examples of your design excellence.

Victor Rabinovitch

Past President and CEO of the Canadian Museum of Civilization

Time-permitting, I have made a point to walk through the exhibition every time I have visited the Canadian War Museum. The stories are truly inspiring and some of the displays and artifacts still give me chills. Honestly, I think it is the best exhibition I have seen at the Canadian War Museum in quite some time. It was a really beautiful exhibition.
