Under his direction the company has evolved to become an authorized direct manufacturer dealer, on many of the key home finishing components required in the design and build process. Lifestyles has evolved to become a recognized industry leader in custom home design based on it’s quality of materials and exceptional craftsmanship, that it is known to deliver.

Over a period of time Lifestyles has created a legacy of delivering exceptional design, value and quality by working on over 200 projects with leading experts and manufacturers in the industry to design and build our clients’ dream homes. Gordon’s philosophy for guiding the development of our evolving client offering can be best summed up by the late Steve Jobs of Apple® who may have said it best: “Design is not just what it looks and feels like, design is how it works.”
We look forward to creating a design that works for your lifestyle.
