About Us

Your Ottawa Valley Design Team

About Onsite

Since 2017 we have provided custom architectural designs and drafting services. Our experience in home construction and architectural design has taught us to design intuitively. We combine your vision with our expertise of local materials, construction processes and municipal building codes. 

We focus on the functional aspects of design and the interconnection of the various building systems including structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, drainage and landscaping. Our team is known for providing excellent customer service, guiding you from the concept phase through to design and development. 

We’re conveniently located in what we like to call Muskoka North — at the heart of the beautiful Bonnechere and Madawaska Valleys on the eastern edge of Algonquin Park. The majority of our projects are rural and waterfront, overlooking the scenic lakes and rivers that define the Ottawa Valley. 

This is the place we call home, where we design for our landscape.

The Onsite Design Approach

Curb Appeal

An Onsite designed project will add style and value to your home so it gets noticed from the street.


As families grow and age, needs around accessibility change too. At Onsite we design homes that can be adapted accordingly.


We consider all building systems during design – how the structure, ductwork, drainage and more will all work together.


We design for today and into the future, developing your new living spaces to reflect your family’s needs over a lifetime.

Energy Efficiency

We develop smart, sustainable new-build and renovation projects that are designed to save on energy bills.


We work with you to design living and hobby spaces that suit your lifestyle, family size and abilities.
