Helping Our Community

How We Give Back

As architects, we are keenly aware that no project exists without context. Similarly, our firm exists in a society that has provided us with an education and our wonderful clients. Even a society like ours needs improvement, however.

Whenever we can, we volunteer our skills for worthy causes. A few things we’re most proud of is designing a community centre almost entirely pro bono, designing pet-friendly prizes for an Ottawa Humane Society fundraiser, and sparking interest in the architecture profession in students. Paul, our principal, has represented community groups in advocacy to city planning councils over the years. You can read more about some of our volunteer efforts below.
