We hired Lindy Consulting in August 2016 for a complete gut renovation project of a heritage-designated house in downtown Toronto. Steven has proven to be a capable, professional and friendly ally, helping us choose a great contractor, navigate the City's red tape and generally provide sound and sensible advice. We enjoy working with him very much and look forward to the successful completion of our dream home. We would highly recommend Lindy Consulting Ltd. for any residential project.

I found Steven Lindy Architect on Houzz, and what a great find. I found Steven to be professional, knowledgeable and highly responsive. I felt like I was working with a collaborative partner who got my vision and put it to paper with helpful suggestions along the way. My project was a large renovation with a third floor addition. I would highly recommend Steven and plan on using him for future projects.

We highly recommend Lindy Consulting Limited for your Architectural design needs. Steven Lindy was friendly and very helpful in explaining the complicated system of designs for our big renovation. We hired Lindy Architect through a recommendation and we found him to be the right fit for our project. The scope of our work was quite extensive and included an open-concept main level and kitchen with an exterior deck and walkout, re-planning of the basement, and renovations on the second floor. He has provided us with fantastic architectural advice, and has worked well with the rest of the team. He is very knowledgeable in structural issues and energy efficiency as well as how to obtain city permits quickly and efficiently. We had absolutely no issues with the city permits which I was expecting after everything else I have heard. Steven helped us greatly starting with 3D renderings providing several options for the design of the space. He then quickly translated those into detailed permit drawings for Toronto building permit approvals. If you are starting the daunting task of getting into home renovations, you should definitely consider Steven for the job.

Lindy Architect provided excellent architectural plans and supervision of the project. Steve shepherded the project successfully through Committee of Adjustment and acquisition of permits. He was creative in addressing some challenging issues and has provided continued input throughout. Steve was easy to contact and communicate with, calm and very organized. Steve is very pleasant to work with and open to input from the client. He also introduced me to a few different contractors, one of which I hired and am very satisfied with. I highly recommend Lindy Architect.

Steve from Toronto, Houzz Review
We have been working with Steven for 7 months now on our total gut renovation project and we are completely satisfied with his services to date. His experience, professionalism and good communication skills have made working with him a pleasure. He expertly guided us through the contractor tendering process and procured an approval without changes for our project at the Committee of Adjustment. He has treated the neighbours with courtesy and was responsive to their needs. Everything is going very well and we look forward to working with Steven. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a small architectural firm with experience in designing additions for historic homes. Steven Lindy responded to my request through HOUZZ. I was looking for a professional architect and not a design/build person and fortunately Steven responded. Steven has handled this project with creativity, efficiency and respect for time and budget. He is easy to work with and to communicate with and was instrumental in getting me an excellent contractor for the job, Building and renovating can be very stressful, but Steven has made the experience as low stress as possible, especially going through Committee of Adjustment and acquiring permits. He continues to monitor the construction process and makes himself available whenever required. I highly recommend him.
Roberta from Toronto, Houzz Review
Steve has been the best! We are thrilled with his work to date. He has had solid and flexible plans for our second/third floor renovation. He was fully prepared for the committee of adjustments on the appointed day. He followed up the one letter of concern with great detail. Needless to say our project was approved! He has always been most professional and knows his way around the committee of adjustments. His drawing have been top notch. We would highly recommend his services without any hesitation.

We are currently working with Steven on a big renovation of our house. We found him is very knowledgeable and helpful during the whole process.

It is a real pleasure to work with him and we are looking forward to moving to next phase. We would highly recommend Lindy Consulting Limited for any architectural design needs!!
CY from Toronto, Houzz Review
I hired steven at Lindy Architect to design a renovation of our house in Moore Park in toronto. Needless to say we obtained our approvals, and Steven stayed involved every step of the way. The design consisted of open concept living room dining room and kitchen space with no beams or walls on the ground floor, underpinning the basement and a complete reno on the second floor. The house was stripped down to the studs. Steven helped us navigate the approvals with the city and was very helpful and knowledgeable during the construction process as well. I do not hesitate to recommend Lindy Architect.
Ali from Moore Park, Houzz Review
We consulted with Steve on developing plans for a two-story rear addition, detached garage and enclosed porch. His proposal was detailed, thorough and fairly priced. Over the two months we worked with Steve, we were impressed by his knowledge of the neighbourhood, attention to detail, and experience in preparing for Committee. He personally met with one of our neighbors to help ease their concerns and helped develop a revised proposal that ensured our variances would pass without major concern from neighbors. We would absolutely recommend working with Steve.

We recently added a bay window and a new Mudroom to our home. Thank you Lindy Architect for the designs and for the fantastic results! Our contractor recommended Lindy Architect for two projects that required architectural design and permit from the city. Some technical issues related to structure and waterproofing were very important for us. The plans made by Steve were clear, detailed and directly addressed the issues. Steve's patience, attention to details and flexibility have been greatly appreciated. He made numerous site visits and showed interest and dedication to our project. He communicated well and answered all of our calls and emails professionally and promptly, and his professional input was always a benefit to the outcome of the project. We would definitely recommend Lindy Architect.
Anne Sophie from Toronto, Houzz Review
Well deserving of 5 Stars.We would highly recommend Lindy Architect not only for being a very good and efficient architect but also very knowledgeable and helpful in the design and renovation processes. So from his basic mandate of a drafting service Steven helped us greatly through permit drawing and approvals, obtaining a really good contractor we are extremely satisfied with, greatly assisting us with the designs and sourcing the most appropriate showrooms for us for floorings, countertop finishes,appliances, washroom fittings etc.The scope of our work was quite extensive and including exterior deck and walkout, windows, open concept main level and kitchen, basement lay out and fireplaces. He has given and continues to give us excellent service.
Peter from Toronto, Houzz Review
We are currently working with Steven on our home reno involving a rear addition, removing load bearing wall and complete kitchen/family room reno. When we first started out on searching for a firm, we had no idea how complex the permit process could be. Because where we are located, there are multiple reviews and approvals by the City in order to move forward. Steven recently represented us at the Committee of Adjustment meeting and we got the approval in less than 5 minutes! It is a pleasure working with him!! He is very good at listening and always takes our feedback into account. Highly recommend Steven's company!
Fei Fei from Toronto, Houzz Review
Steven designed our home renovation with a focus on the exterior. His ideas were thoughtful and innovative. He was very patient and took in all our ideas, which always came back better and more refined. He helped us select a contractor. We really liked his collaborative and thorough approach. We were very glad we chose him.
Joshua from Toronto, Houzz Review
Lindy Consulting is a fantastic architecture firm! We have very much enjoyed working with them. They have implemented numerous projects of ours, and the work has always been detailed oriented, precise and timely while resulting in some high quality finishes. They are a group of problem solvers who know how to get the job done. I am looking forward to working together again on another project, which I hope will not be too far in the future. By the way, we are in love with our remodeled kitchen. Thank you team!! Highly recommended.
Alan from Toronto, Houzz Review
Kitchen re-design and some structural work. We worked with Steven on the redesign of our kitchen in our older home. The project also involved moving some walls and creating a downstairs bathroom. Steven was very good at coming up with design solutions that make best use of the space available. He also had a very good sense of the technical issues involved in making changes to an older property and worked with his own structural engineer where needed. The permit drawings were very detailed and captured the design we wanted. Steven handled the whole process of applying for the City of Toronto building permit, which was issued very quickly and without difficulty. We’re now ready to meet with contractors and obtain quotes. Steven’s professionalism and customer service has made it very easy to bring the project this far and we’d definitely work with him again if we were planning a future construction or renovation project.
Neil from Toronto, Houzz Review
Lindy Architects met with us to draw plans and design an addition to our house. They were prompt and courteous, returned all phone calls immediately and met with us several times to go over the plans in more detail. They are a real pleasure to deal with and took care of all the details concerning permit applications. They have been extremely helpful at all stages of the design process. We would recommend this company highly. With their assistance we are now moving forward to the building stage.
Sarah from Toronto, Houzz Review
I contacted Steve about an addition we were doing to our house and a complete redesign of our kitchen and mater bathroom. Steve was courtious, efficient, and when we had some issues with building permits he was prompt and good about modifications to get the plans approved by the city. We would highly recommend Lindy Architect to any of our friends.
Brian from Toronto, Houzz Review
Approaching this project as complete renovation novices, Steven immediately put us at ease. He was lucid in his explanations, thoughtful in his suggestions and always available to talk through new ideas and to revise the plans as circumstances demanded. Of most importance is that we were approved for our building permit in five days with no revisions. He was a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend Steven as a design consultant.
