About 2Co.Design Build
2Co.Design Build was created by two experienced and well-respected Designers coming together to bring a new approach to Interior Design to their clients.
Combining a design philosophy of timeless and exceptional quality with a fun and approachable outlook on client service, they opened their doors in January 2015.
Since their humble beginnings in 2 small offices of less than 500 sq ft, they’ve grown quickly to over 5,000 sq ft of space that includes a fabulous showroom filled with design ideas for every room in your home.

Meet the 2Co.Design Team
Michelle understands the importance of making a home your own and inspires clients to go beyond the conventional to create a home that is truly a reflection of them.
Since graduating from The International Academy of Design in 1991, she has acquired experience in retail design companies…from paint & decor through high end furniture and custom drapery. In 2011 she was given the opportunity to teach Materials & Finishes at Durham College and became a partner at Sum of 3 Designs, expanding her range to provide full service home renovations.
In 2013 she added teaching History of Furniture at Durham College, and in 2014 partnered with Susan Carducci to open 2Co.Design Build….Michelle loves the diversity that each new project brings and having the opportunity to create beautiful homes.
Joanne’s fascination and inspiration for design started in her early teens. Growing up in a century home she was always painting and decorating the various rooms in their home. On summer break from studies while attending the University of Toronto in the Psycholinguistics program, Joanne completed her first total kitchen renovation in her childhood home. This love of design and décor was now fully planted.
After a successful career in IT, Joanne has returned to her first love. Over the last few years, she has continued her studies in the Interior Design program while working in the design and décor industry, recently joining the team at 2 Co. Design.
Joanne loves to help clients find the perfect furniture for their space or add the finishing touches to their décor through the selection of accessories.
The entire 2Co.Design Build team impressed us from start to finish working with them through our renovation. Upon our first meeting with Michelle, she took the time to understand our needs and our vision by using her creativity and common sense to incorporate our ideas into the beautiful environment we now live in. Keeping within our budget and our vision was always at the forefront.
