About Emerge
WORKPLACE interiors

It’s the relationships that matter. I value active correspondence and enjoy getting to know people on a personal level. I inspire a working environment that will be filled with laughter and life’s simple pleasures.

My passion for traveling greatly influences my spaces and bold sense of colour and is one of the most important aspects of my life. As a designer I exist to be highly inventive, unique ideas that make us uncomfortable are great ideas. I like to be recklessly courageous!

"Living in the Lower Mainland, Kootenays and the Peace Region, I am constantly captivated by my surroundings. I can't think of any better place to draw creative inspiration from."

In Their Words
"I had the pleasure of working extensively with Gwyntie following the opening of the new Fort St. John Hospital & Peace Villa Residential Care Facility on the interior design project. Gwyntie was able to create a therapeutic and community oriented environment by working with local artists in which she introduced nature and a real sense of healing to the facility.

We have received numerous compliments from the public regarding the interior ambiance of the facility. Gwyntie was provided a detailed work plan and proposed a reasonable budget and she was able to stay on budget and on time."

Angela De Smit, Chief Operating Officer at Fort St. John Hospital & Peace Villas Residential Care Facility
"Emerge is a real addition to any project and a time saver. We have been able to work as a successful team, and keep projects on budget. Working with Gwyn has been a major factor in client satisfaction on our projects, true story!"

Eric Bell, Principal at Northern Legendary Construction
"Emerge Design was contracted to do an extensive renovation for Lake View Credit Union in 2012. I worked closely with Gwyntie van Tuyl throughout the renovations, from the design stage through to completion. I was immediately impressed with Gwyntie as she took the time to understand the culture at Lake View Credit Union before drafting any design plans.

Gwyntie considered our values every step of the way, inkling re-using as much existing office furniture as possible. This was an onerous task that Gwyntie undertook with energy and drive that ensured our values were respected. Through the inevitable hiccups along the path of a major renovation, Gwyntie was professional, accountable, and treated everyone around her with respect and kindness. Gwyntie found a way to make our building warm and inviting, while ensuring that our requirements around privacy were met and the needs of our staff were fulfilled.

Most importantly, Gwyntie kept the values of Lake View Credit Union front of mind, even though this made her job more difficult at various stages of the renovations. Gwyntie is a bright, refreshing individual who puts the needs and wants of her clients first. I highly recommend Emerge Design for any renovation or design build project."
