About New Century Design
Our Story

New Century Design was formed in 1999 by Shawn Jensen. After 15 years of custom and showhome design for a major custom home builder, demand for his services convinced him to start his own Design Studio. Over the years, New Century Design has gained a great reputation throughout the residential design and home construction industries for its innovative designs, excellent communication and commitment to customer service. Our work philosophy at New Century Design is simple: There are no shortcuts!

Our Team

SHAWN JENSEN A.T.

President - Principal Designer

Shawn spent 15 years honing his skills as a Senior Designer with Cardel Custom Homes. During this time, he designed over three hundred show homes and many hundreds of custom client homes. Many of those Homes received SAM Awards and National recognition. For Shawn, the true measure of good design is in the positive response of a homeowner after living there. With New Century Design, Shawn has been providing clients with custom designs that are distinctive and personal. He has built a reputation for great design based on his philosophy that your home must complement your lifestyle. To achieve this, he places as much attention as possible on functionality and efficiency as he does on style and aesthetics. He is honoured by the trust homeowners place in his team.
