"Architecture plays a fundamental role in expressing our identity as Indigenous Peoples and building greater communities and nations across Turtle Island. My approach to architecture and design has always been inspired and driven by Indigenous knowledge and pedagogy." - Ray Gosselin
As tenants in the First Nations University Building, Principal Architect, Ray Gosselin, brings over 33 years in the industry, and leads his small (and mighty!) firm.
As a small local business in the Treaty 4 area, we are excited to celebrate our 9th year in operation, and look forward to new projects on our horizon. In addition to our professional industry experience, our team brings a cultural appreciation to all our projects as a diverse and inclusive workplace, with all our staff being either Indigenous or a visible minority.
Our team is fortunate to have completed a wide variety of projects including; new builds, retrofits and renovations, building condition assessments, planning and feasibility studies as well offering cultural architectural expertise to unique and special projects.
Our favourite projects are ones that are community-centred, highlight potential and impact that well-designed spaces can make for people, and if we can incorporate youth mentorship or training into our projects - we will!
