Our work ranges from large cultural, educational, commercial, and multiuse facilities to light industrial projects and private homes.



Iredale Architecture was founded in 1980. Recently we celebrated 35 years together with many of our clients and the engineers who have worked with us through the years.



From our offices in Vancouver, Victoria and Calgary, we provide services throughout British Columbia and Alberta, and are also active in Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan and New York.



Our partners are involved in the day-to-day work of the firm, leading and mentoring teams of associates, technologists and other professionals. We foster open dialogue with our clients and sub-consultants. To ensure that each project receives expert attention, one of the firm’s partners acts as the point person for each project. The Partner in Charge is responsible for the progress of the project and its success, with the assistance of a team defined at the beginning of the project.



We believe that architecture has a key role to play in shaping our communities and in promoting sustainable practices. Iredale Architecture was one of the first architecture firms in the province to embrace and promote sustainable practices in architecture.

We welcome inquiries about our work and look forward to hearing from you.
