Portrait of Margo Smith

Margo joined Zeidler in 2020 as Interior Design Studio Lead in our Vancouver studio. Having worked in Interior Design in Vancouver and Western Canada for over 25 years, she not only brings a diverse portfolio along with her, but an inspired and creative approach to design.

Early on, Margo knew that architecture and design was the career path for her. Working as a set designer for the drama department at her high school, she was intrigued by how influential the setting is for live theatre, dance, and opera—almost as if becoming another character. Translating this philosophy to her career as an interior designer provides her work with nuanced detail. The excitement and challenge of constant evolution in trends, materials, technologies, and strategies fulfills her desire for continued learning.

Margo sees herself as a technical designer at heart, loving the research, the planning, and working out the details of a project. Ultimately, she believes that a project’s inspiration comes down to understanding the client’s needs, wants and goals, and developing a synergy with them to create the best strategies and decisions. Margo says, “our work is handmade just for our clients, and a lot of work goes into getting that perfect fit!”

Outside of the studio, Margo is on the 2022 CREW Vancouver Board of Directors as Co-Director of Sponsorships.
