Monzu and Hannah Design was started in 2008 in Barcelona, Spain, and moved to Vancouver in 2011. We have been collaborating with a diversity of local and international studios including AA Robins Architect and QoWood. As of 2013 we have been focusing on local projects, in Vancouver's West Side and the North Shore.
We strongly believe that design should be a necessity not a luxury. No matter how small or large, each projects is approached with great care and attention to detail, in order to create beautiful and functional spaces for each of our clients to enjoy.
