It has truly been a pleasure to work with Gloria Apostolou and Post Architecture. We feel very fortunate to have found Gloria through Houzz. Gloria worked with us to redesign and renovate the interior of our Edwardian home in the Annex. We hired her based on her experience with our type of home and her uniformly positive references from other clients.

We are so very pleased with the results. We give her five stars and recommend her highly for the following reasons: Gloria listened to our needs and preferences and used these to create a stunning new space for us that dramatically improves the overall function of our house; she has excellent attention to detail and beautiful, modern, intelligent aesthetic; she was always quick to respond to our questions and was easy to work with – so professional and personable; and she worked seamlessly with Inline Design+Build.

We have been so happy with the process of the renovation and the results and would certainly hire Gloria again for another renovation project.
— Client, Houzz, June 2017
We worked with Gloria for over a year on planning and implementing our interior home renovation. We couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and the process along the way. Gloria and her team were professional, sensitive to our needs, flexible with timelines, understanding and respectful of our concerns, and worked seamlessly with our contractor - an attribute that we’ve come to greatly appreciate.

Gloria’s vision for our home suited our tastes and we worked well together to refine that vision. Her ability to see the finished product during construction was impressive as is her eye for detail, design and practical matters.

It was easy to trust her sense of what was right for our home and us; there were numerous times when we were pleasantly surprised, both before and after the renovation was completed, to see how well the various components Gloria had a hand in, worked together.

We highly recommend Gloria and Post Architecture.

Gloria Apostolou and post Architecture are highly recommended. Gloria clearly understood our vision for the extensive renovation of our mid-century modern home and produced extraordinarily comfortable living spaces and a home that we are proud to call our own. She was quick to respond to and address our concerns providing sound recommendations and design solutions, she worked well with the contractor and subs, her attention to detail was simply excellent, and she deftly managed the interface between achieving the design vision and the practical resolution of construction realities and site conditions. And her ability to achieve the fine balance between cost efficiency and design excellence is to be commended. Gloria was an absolute gem to work with.

I don’t have enough great things to say about Gloria and Post Architecture. We are beyond grateful that we found her on Houzz. She was a delight to work with and our project was definitely elevated because of her. I can’t imagine doing our kitchen and basement without her. She had incredible ideas and worked out any arising issues calmly and with grace. She was always available when we needed her and such a pleasure to be around. The drawings were virtually identical to the finished product and her recommendation of contractor was also invaluable to us. The level of quality they practice is second to none. She took my fragments of dreams and ideas and made them come to life in a way I couldn’t have imagined. Post Architecture definitely exceeded our expectations, we had a great experience and would most definitely use them in the future.

I simply cannot say enough good things about Gloria at Post Architecture and my experience working with her. I hired her to design a complete renovation of our house, a small, historic home in downtown Toronto. I chose her because of her experience in working in this type of classic, small, city space and her chic aesthetic. Once I saw the work she’d done on other small homes like ours, I was hooked.

From our first meeting she understood exactly what I needed for our home and brought incredible ideas, both beautiful and practical, to the table.

We worked throughout the year on the plans while we waited for our contractor to be able to start. With every update, every conversation, Gloria honed in tighter on how to bring space, light and beauty into our small space.

The result is spectacular, to say the least. We have a, cozy, functional and purposeful home (that suits the needs of me, two teenagers and pets!) that is also modern, elegant and stylish. She accommodated our need for tons of storage, without sacrificing anything aesthetically. In short, we live in a stunning space that looks like a magazine, but one that is completely liveable. We are all so happy in our new home.

Gloria is easy to talk to, she has great ideas and listens carefully to the client. It felt like it was a real partnership. 5 stars. Would give more if I could.
— Vikki, Houzz, August 2015
We engaged Gloria to work on the renovations of our newly purchased home because of her focus on employing techniques to emphasize the space and light of a room and, ultimately, of an entire house. She did not disappoint! From the expansion of the kitchen with larger windows and significantly more space to pull in the backyard light and views, to the enlargement of the front windows to bring in the light and views of the park across the street, she significantly improved what has been a dark and enclosed main floor. Her other ideas, from changes to the windows to recommendations for lighting, cabinetry and blinds, painting and carpets, were all excellent, and complemented the architectural design changes that she made.

We were very pleased both with the process and the outcomes of Gloria’s work, and would definitely engage her again.

Deco-Tile has been working with Gloria @ Post Architecture for several years now.
The attention given to every detail, big or small shows through each and every design.
It is always a pleasure when working together, and we look forward to continuing to do so in future.

We would definitely recommend Post Architecture for your next project!

When we first engaged Post Architecture, we had thought the only way to gain liveable space was to build an addition. Gloria was able to maximize our living space within the existing exterior walls and we were able to put these savings toward better quality of finishes. We have been very happy in our new space. Gloria designed a very efficient kitchen for us and we enjoy our reading nook in the kitchen which is one of our favourite spots. Our girls love their peek-a-boo window that was added between their bedrooms, a suggestion from Gloria in order to get more day-light into the middle bedroom...this feature has been a huge hit in our house. Gloria’s attention to detail through construction aided in resolving issues early and to everyone’s satisfaction. It was great working with Gloria and her team and we would not hesitate to work with her again or recommend her firm to anyone.

My partner and I worked with Post Architecture on the complete renovation of our 100 year-old home in the West end of Toronto. Absolutely everything inside the house was removed, and much of the structure needed to be fixed. We are absolutely thrilled with the results! Our home is a wonderful reflection of our personalities and preferences thanks to the creativity and skill of the Post Architecture staff. Gloria was so easy to work with and was always available to answer construction questions and provide input throughout the process. She was extremely open to our ideas and feedback and her designs were responsive. Gloria kept in excellent contact with us as well as our general contractor throughout the construction process to ensure that the plans were being correctly executed and to make necessary adjustments based on site conditions. I highly recommend Post Architecture for a project of any scope, and I would work with Gloria again in a heartbeat!

We contacted Gloria Apostolou, the principal architect at Post Architecture, last March for our renovation project, which involved a complete redesign of our 1928 Toronto home, and ever since then, our experience with her was outstanding. Gloria is an extremelly good listener and we always felt it was very easy to communicate with her and express our often vague ideas of what we were looking for and then see these ideas transform into something that was beyond our expectations. We think she is very talented and creative, and we are extremelly happy with her final design, in terms of its overall look, functionality, and use of space. In fact, her design transformed our home in such a beautiful way that even before its completion (we still have about one month to go; once it’s all done we’ll post some pictures), we got many compliments from our friends and neighbours (and an occassional real estate agent). Other great things about Gloria is that no problem is too small for her to give you her full attention and most often surprise you with a creative solution. She also has extensive experience with local builders, contractors, and trades people, which is a virtue that cannot be overestimated at the execution stage. One other thing that worked really well for us is that Gloria has lived and worked in several European countries, including Italy and Finland, yet she is from Toronto, so that she was able to help us find the style we were looking for, that has all the comforts and conveniences of a North American home, and at the same time has nice European touches that brings the whole thing together in a really neat way. We should also say that before we started working with Gloria and Post Architecture we had some concerns about the cost of hiring an architectural firm. In retrospective, this was the best decision we could have made because we are getting the result that we wanted and we also saved quite a bit by exploring various options that best suited our needs. We would highly recommend Gloria and the services that Post Architecture provides to our family, friends and neighbours.

After eight years living with a bathroom from the 80s – jacuzzi tub, plastic insert shower, dated tile work, ancient vanity – my wife and I were at our wit’s end. The existing layout didn’t work so we couldn’t replace in kind, but we didn’t know how to design a good layout.
After shopping around, rejecting one designer who was too evasive, another that took forever to answer simple queries, we selected Gloria Apostolou of Post Architecture. She had an impressive portfolio, promptly answered all our initial questions and helped us scope out a budget.
She came up with a few focused designs that met our specs, recommended a couple of contractors, and advised us on where to source good-quality appliances and materials.
From the outset, we felt her design was wonderful. Although we had a few glitches in the renovation (100-year-old house, need I say more?) and some budget over-run, the end result was spectacular.
We’re very happy with our new bathroom and the credit is all hers. If anyone needs a creative designer with a great client-care ethic, see Gloria.

Gloria Apostolou is an exceptional architect. We hired Gloria to redesign our kitchen and open concept first floor and to oversee the renovations. We wanted a clean, modern, bright and calming space and she successfully created just that. Gloria is a highly skilled, very professional architect who strikes the perfect balance between being confident and clear about her aesthetic while being attentive and sensitive to both the functionality of the space as well as the desires and taste of the homeowners. She listens very well, is meticulous in her approach to every part of the job and has a keen eye for detail. Gloria’s architectural skill is abundantly evident, our first floor has such wonderful clean lines and perfect angles. Yet Gloria also brings a wonderfully creative and fanciful approach which ensured that our space, while modern and white, has character, texture, originality and warmth. It was a big job, which she managed with a consistently calm, reliable efficiency. The general contractor whom she recommended was outstanding and both made a real effort to make the renovations as smooth as possible, a particular challenge since we (my partner, 9 year old son and dog!) lived in the house throughout the renovations. We couldn’t be happier with the process and the result. I recommend her in the highest of possible terms.

What can I say? You are so talented and truly focused on making the best design choices! Wish we could work together more often!

Gloria is without a doubt, one of the most talented architects I have ever collaborated with. Being an interior designer, we have worked on numerous projects over the last 10 years. She is thoughtful, articulate, interesting and just completely awesome. She is simply one of the best people I have ever met. Gloria will create the most incredible space for you and will make the journey an absolute pleasure.
— Colleague, Houzz, March 2006
Gloria is amazing. Her designs were extremely well thought out and she went way beyond the call of duty to meet our needs. She was very easy to work with, listened to our requests and came up with a dream plan. I would strongly recommend her.

We are working with Post Architecture on a new build of a modern coach house in Toronto, Canada. Principal, Gloria Apsotolou has created a design that effortlessly balances function and flow while maximizing limited space with strong design elements. Our needs and preferences have always been heard and taken into consideration, and we have felt supported by Gloria’s experience in the many decisions required, including creative solutions to ensure our budget stays on track.

Gloria Apsotolou ‘s eye for detail and excellence, along with her professionalism, team leadership and quality of connection with her clients makes Post Architecture’s projects stand out not only for their spectacular design, but also by how much their transformed spaces are loved by many.

We highly recommend working with Post Architecture.

We worked with Gloria to re design and re construct a 3,400 square foot home in Riverdale. The results were spectacular in the true sense of the word and a credit to Gloria’s innovative and cost sensitive design. We would recommend her highly.
