Hilde Heyvaerts

Principal, Vancouver

Originally from Northern Belgium, Hilde’s wandering soul has taken her around the world to experience different places and cultures. With each visit to a new place, Hilde reinforces her belief that architecture is for people, and should respond not only to the environmental and economic context but to the way people live, socially and culturally.

This “people first” approach to architectural design has inspired Hilde to collaborate closely with our urban design team members; it is through this joint effort between architecture and urban design that projects can create powerful opportunities for social impact that reach beyond the property line.

Equally at home on a construction site as she is in her garden, Hilde tends to the growth and transformation of all her projects, regardless of scale.

“A good space generates good feelings and creates happy people. A great space has the power to transform people’s lives by allowing them to thrive.”
