Megan Dougherty

Interior Designer

While architects take a wide angle view of their projects, interior designers are often the ones creating those memorable, tactile details that a building’s residents, workers, or guests remember. At Martin Simmons Sweers, Megan is the interior designer who helps clients translate the style, layout, functionality, technology, and feeling they want from their space into a practical reality. Megan’s detail-driven personality allows her to stay organized and diligent – something her clients quickly appreciate given the host of design decisions required on a daily basis. Her drive for innovation and highly personalized, unique projects will help spaces stand out, while also standing the test of time. “Interior design is a way of making art; it is a self-expression that allows me to create something real that can be enjoyed and experienced.” Personally, Megan draws inspiration from the natural world while she enjoys her hobby of gardening as well as hiking with her dog. She says, “nature organically creates design elements that we, as humans, are instinctively drawn to and help us feel inherently comfortable.”

“My motto is design should be functional yet inspiring. And that is true for any building type or size of space,” Megan explains.

Working across high-rise residential, commercial interiors, hospitality, and educational spaces, Megan has her pulse on the latest design trends, material palettes, and environmental options, while also taking the unique needs of her clients in mind. As a member of the Martin Simmons Sweers architectural team, she works directly with the design team to ensure a seamless connection with concepts, construction details, and timelines. It is Megan that provides the options and decisions on finishes, furniture, millwork, and so much more.

“One of my particular skills is space planning layouts as well as incorporating interesting choices for materials and colour. It’s by keeping an eye on every small detail, we can create a space that has a huge impact.”

"Working on the Customer Service Renovation at Kitchener City Hall has been a highlight in my career. It is a community staple to the City of Kitchener and it is exciting to be a part of the new design which will improve how the community utilizes the space."
