“RENOVA-tio” :// … REBIRTH——renewal


Renovating or building your home can be a daunting task, especially if you're working full time and trying also to find balance between your job and your family... A DIY (do it yourself) renovation or construction project can quickly become a burden that keeps you awake at night and seems to never end. The TV shows make it seems easy (we know how they are...we were featured in the Property Brothers... and played along) but the reality is often quite different if you don't know exactly what you're doing.

Mojo Home Design is first and foremost built on the vision of two individuals: Stephane Belanger & Karina Strachan. Husband and wife since 1999. We are a locally owned, boutique real estate development company that brings vision and passion to building and renovating residential housing and commercial spaces, from its inception in Quebec more than twenty years ago, to the last decade in the greater Vancouver area. No project is too big or too small for us!

After the first few successful projects, family and friends saw the value in what we were working to achieve, and decided to invest and support our vision. This allowed Mojo home Design to focus solely on developing personal projects for those last 20 years. We completed 17 personal projects worth over $27M in today's market both in Quebec and Vancouver. Ready to expand, we are now seeking other investors through our partnership offering, who are interested and as excited as we are to join us in this fantastic journey.

At the same time, we are also looking for new clients seeking honest & friendly expertise in completing their own personal renovation/construction project.

featured projects



introducing rabbit lane...

This was a very extensive renovation project done on a beautiful Berwick and Pratt original (circa 1947) rancher in West Vancouver. It was important to us to respect the original lines of the space and the vision of those renowned architects in bringing this timeless construction into the 21st century. The first phase of the renovation included opening up the kitchen and basically redoing the entire mechanical elements of this home. Our project was featured on the tv show, "Property Brothers".

....second floor addition

After 3 months of shooting and the completion of the show with the brothers, we literally "blew up the roof!" and added a second floor to accommodate for more living space. Also added were a complete new set of windows and doors, a dramatic new entrance of over 23 feet high, new roofing, exterior finishing and decking to turn this 2500 sq ft mid century modern rancher into a beautiful 4500 sq ft modern home of a new era. See before and after pictures.

rabbit lane second floor addition!


This was a very cool project in a very well built concrete tower (Ashby House) sitting right on Victoria Park. This 2 bed, 2 bath was in its original condition going back all the way to the early 70’s. Everything was updated here with full line of Kohler plumbing fixture, professional line of Kitchen Aid black stainless appliances, new flooring and removal of the popcorn ceiling. Unfortunately, the concrete ceiling prevented us to add potlights without the addition of a drop down ceiling which would have bring the finished ceiling too low in our opinion. Dealing with several options to finish the outside covered deck, we decided to go with “playful” and added a little putting green….



This was a 1 bedroom suite in dire need of upgrade before hitting the market. We completely re-did the bathroom, the kitchen, lay down new flooring, flatten the popcorn ceiling, give a fresh coat of paint and staged the place ready for sale.  The unit sold in 14 days 70K over its original value.  

renovation project, creelman ave, vancouver

This was a 1500 sq ft half duplex within 1 block from Kits beach that MOJO HOME DESIGN acquired. The unit was built on 3 levels with a very poor closed-in floorplan. We completely opened up the middle floor and moved the kitchen and living room from the basement up to this floor, refinished the master bedroom and bathroom and created a new bedroom and a new family room on the first floor.


commercial renovation. blu bar & grill

blu bar & grill was an old Greek restaurant that had not been updated for over 20 years. After a huge cleanup, it received a complete facelift and was transformed into an urban and contemporary restaurant with a global cuisine, and loads of custom features.
