Fold Architecture Inc provides exceptional service to exceptional clients in coastal BC.
Architects provide an essential service that assures buildings are built responsibly for the safety and health of occupants and the environment. We work closely with our clients to establish the spatial and programmatic elements of each project, and ensure the projects unique values and goals are woven through the resulting work.
Architects then detail the design and coordinate the work of specialists who design structure, mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems. Throughout construction, architects assess the work in progress, and resolve problems that arise along they way, with the Contractor and Owner.
Creating a great building is hard work.
We do it because it matters, but we also do it because it’s fun.
Feasibility and Design Consults
Good design starts by asking questions. Feasibility work explores the goals, objectives, and contraints that underlie every project. We collect data, undertake research and rapidly test ideas. The result is the “basis of design;” a foundation of information on which to drive the project forward with confidence. Not sure where to start? Start Here.
