Lara Presber // Principal, Founder
Has a penchant for dry humour, dry rosé, and most importantly drywall.
There’s not much in this world Lara loves more than a glass of rosé after a DIY home-drywall job — because deep down she’s nothing if not a renaissance woman. Case in point, the alphabet after her name. All those letters mean different things but stand for one thing; she’s going to deliver. Anyone who’s been through the process knows it takes a particular force of will to wrangle a place from its raw form into a finished space. Lara is uniquely possessed by that strength of being. She doesn’t leave the house without a measuring tape, dreams in blueprints and somehow can find a way to mollify even the most unruly projects into submission. For proof, one can easily turn to her resume which, alongside an international education, impressive client list and vast professional accolades also includes a womenswear line. If you still aren’t satisfied, we submit to evidence her spectacular English gardens, which despite Calgary’s notoriously difficult climate, she somehow manages to coax to life each spring. A literal and figurative force of nature, Lara is a tremendous advocate for her clients. She’ll help articulate your vision and then move mountains or walls to bring it to life.
