Welcome to our Vancouver studio

Here, a culture of collaboration fosters our creativity: we are one team with a common set of goals and values. The ideals of beauty, simplicity, functionality, and sustainability—symbolized by the canoe that hangs in our atrium—are central to our work. With these as our foundation, combined with a desire to always do better, we forge new frontiers through research and innovation. Together, we create change.

“I love our culture of collaboration. We have a shared sense of purpose—we engage in finding solutions together with a positive attitude and have taken time to get to know each other on a more personal level. To me, this makes working in the design world fun and fulfilling.”

– Manuela Londono, Sustainable Building Advisor
