Cornerstone Architecture

Our design ambition is to satisfy both the practical demands and the spirits of those who inhabit our projects. Cornerstone Architecture is a Vancouver-based architectural firm founded in 1983. The firm has broad experience in a range of building types for both public and private clients. The firm brings to these projects a commitment to meet client objectives in a consultative manner based on a high quality of design, and on sound environmental, technical and financial understanding. A key to successful design is to ensure it is based on a complete understanding of client ambitions and requirements – a well-defined problem is well on the way to being successfully resolved. We are experienced in the process of analyzing existing conditions, developing the program of requirements, identifying opportunities and testing alternate strategies. Of equal importance to successful design is the commitment to the resulting quality of experience. We are committed to finding the design response that resonates with the client’s core values and vision, and fulfills the potential of place.
