Bankside Design Studio is a full-service boutique design firm, based in Southern, Ontario. Our signature style is best described as a warm approach to minimalism, in which every element is chosen with your unique lifestyle in mind.

"Great design is great complexity presented via simplicity."


We believe that truly distinctive homes begin with listening.

The success of any project can be measured by its ability to meet your needs and enhance your daily life. We have created a transparent and collaborative process that places our clients' vision for their life and home at the center of everything we do. We consider it an honor to work alongside homeowners to design something so meaningful and impactful on their quality of life.

Kathy Hurley is the founder and principal designer of Bankside Design Studio. She is an ARIDO and NCIDQ certified designer with degrees from the University of Waterloo and Fanshawe College. After years of experience working for top architectural firms and contractors, Kathy was ready to set out on her own. She wanted to create a holistic design experience—a studio with the capability and skill to offer clients a complete vision of their potential home, with exterior and interior concepts in cutting-edge realistic renderings. 


Kathy has earned a reputation locally and beyond for her modern yet inviting designs and her architecture-forward perspective. What truly sets the spaces she designs apart is her authentic approach that views every element as an opportunity to create something thoughtfully tailored to her clients' lives.
