South Street Boat Builders

We are South Street Boatbuilders, makers of fine lighting, furniture, accessories and, as the name suggests, boats. Founded by young and vibrant designers Hilary Hayes and Tim Richards in 2012, South Street Boatbuilders aim to bring contemporary Canadian design to the cottage and country home lifestyle. South Street Boatbuilders forge a unique style that seeks inspiration in everything from the grandest natural phenomena, to utilitarian man-made objects, from clean geometric forms to flowingly organic masses derived from our boatbuilding techniques.

We are a collaborative design studio that values authenticity, craftsmanship, quality materials, and good, responsible design. If you are an architect, builder, or interior designer with a project you’d like to work with us on, we would love to hear about it. We are always excited about custom projects or larger-scale installations of our pieces. We come from a very interdisciplinary background and work well with other designers directly, or on our own, taking creative lead on a variety of projects. Give us a shout if you’d like to discuss a special project with us, we look forward to hearing from you.
