While we are based on the West Coast of Canada this has not stopped us from working on projects, and with clients from around the world.
We never let distance get in the way. Through the use of online meetings we discuss projects and share drawings live with clients no matter where they are located. All that is needed is access to the internet.
Our passion for architecture has led us to explore projects in a number of countries. We relish the challenges that come from taking our experience and adapting to the work and design styles of different cultures.
OpenSpace Architecture (OSA) is a boutique architectural and interior design practice based on Vancouver’s North Shore, Canada. While OSA specialises in single family and resort residential projects, we also have a broad range of experience in master planning and infrastructure projects. Beyond the obvious OSA creates work that is essentially memorable. We believe that extraordinary design feels as though it was simply meant to be, an expression of its inhabitants, the environment and the spaces in between.
We offer a playful yet rigorous approach to design. Projects come to life through pollination of key ideas and a strongly integrated design process. By staying nimble and on task, we sketch and fine tune options, create scale models, evaluate materials and assemble sample boards concurrently. Digital technology offers us tools which we use with craft and precision, turning abstract concepts into information models, using 3-D digital programming to test each solution thoroughly.
Teamwork is integral. Our creative studio offers an invaluable exchange of leading edge ideas and constructive critiques. As a client or consultant you will always feel welcome and appreciated here. We listen carefully and hone our work, offering a 110% approach on every design commission, regardless of scale and scope.
Our hands-on methodology is driven by a deep respect for the relationships between people, nature and the built environment. With proactive management of design, delivery, budgets and team, this proven process enhances our ability to succeed as a team. We survive on our reputation of exceptional quality design and service, most new clients come to us though recommendations from previous projects.
