WHO WE ARE
DAE – Design Architecture Everyday Inc. is a dynamic, full-service architecture practice based in Vancouver, BC. We design spaces that positively impact the day-to-day lives of the people that use them, regardless of the scale or type of project.
Founding Partners, David Long and Antoine Morris bring a combined 20 years of experience navigating the complexities of project management and design in the building industry, from rezoning and permit applications through construction. Thinking both creatively and realistically, our mandate is to deliver exceptional architecture within your schedule and budget.
WHAT WE DO
We are a boutique firm offering a comprehensive architecture and design skill set. We focus on small and mid-sized residential projects where we can offer our complete attention, providing tailored solutions to the client.
Your vision guides our design. We listen first so we can clearly identify and understand the important needs, goals, and vision of our clients before crafting solutions. We then take a rigorous, organized, and communicative approach to the design and construction process.

PRINCIPAL, ARCHITECT, AIBC
Antoine is a licensed Architect, registered with the Architectural Institute of British Columbia. From product design to renovating heritage buildings, from residential and institutional work to urban design, Antoine brings 15 years of experience in just about every scale of design.
His experience at Kongats Architects and SvN Architects and Planners has taught him to begin every project by first understanding its core issues and limitations and working within those boundaries to create a unique solution. His interest lies in finding that particular solution which will elevate a project from regular to outstanding while working closely with the client to ensure that all the project goals are met.
His core interest lies in developing and implementing a strong, clear, and simple concept that informs all steps of the project from the schematic phase to end of construction.
