I’m Krista Martens, Principal Designer & Owner of Beyond Measure Design Inc. I grew up in small town Saskatchewan where I was drawn to art, music & construction from an early age. I followed my passion for design to Saskatchewan Polytechnic(previously SIAST Palliser Campus in Moose Jaw)where I enrolled in the Architectural & Building Technology program. In 1999 I graduated & headed out into the home building industry where I have been working ever since.
In 2008 I took a leap of faith & started Beyond Measure Design Inc. My vision was to create a firm that had a different perspective on residential design. A firm that would take the time needed to listen to a clients dreams for their home & then through collaboration, help them create that space that uniquely reflected them. I love form & function and strive to make each design a home, not just a house.
When I’m not in front of my computer designing homes you’ll find me spending my time with my 7 year old daughter Haylee & husband of 16 years (yes I said 16!) Ryan. We are a family that enjoys cooking together, we play a mean game of Settlers of Catan & of course, enjoy the many festivals and events in this amazing City!
I just want to say “Thank you!” to all the clients who have entrusted me to create their dream home for them. This summer marks the 8th year Beyond Measure Design Inc. & I can’t wait to see what the next years have in store!

How do you define business leadership? I have been thinking about this a lot lately… mostly because I am working through future planning for my business. One of the questions I’ve asked myself often is “Do you have what it takes to lead others?” The inner critic, of course, has an opinion. In reality it is […]

From time to time we all fall into the trap of comparing our life to someone else. We look at others and wish we had what they had or were doing what they were doing. Comparison is something I openly admit I struggle with. As far back as I can remember I’ve always had this feeling of […]

Some of you know who this little girl is, others don’t. She is part of the reason why I get up early every morning, have set up my business to be based from home & find myself constantly striving for more. I am the first to admit being a parent and operating a business is far beyond any […]

As I write this I am approaching my 38th Birthday which has reminded me of how close I am to that milestone of 40. This has, no doubt, prompted a big question. Where do I want to be at 40? The older I get the more I realize that I crave simplicity in my life. […]
