Firm

The Philosophy

Proscenium Architecture + Interiors Inc. is an architectural and interior design firm based in Vancouver, BC. As a mid-sized firm, we combine the personal attention and creative energy of a small design studio with the technical strength and experience associated with a large firm. We have a depth of experience across many project types, with a focus on local cultural spaces, post-secondary institutional buildings, offices, and retail. Proscenium values Process-driven Design, Sustainability and Community.

We listen closely to our clients to generate sensitive design solutions that lead to functional and interesting spaces. Discussion and workshops allow us to develop a shared understanding of the unique opportunities of each project, leading to a tailored design response.

We recognize that Architecture is a key component of a sustainable future, and provide our clients with insight into products and technologies that will improve the performance and efficiency of their projects.

Proscenium has been serving Vancouver since 1996, when we began as a firm focused on the planning and design of facilities for the Arts. The theatrical proscenium arch—from which we derive our name— is a device for framing a common perspective. This serves as an inspiration for our ongoing process, which we undertake with each new client and challenge.
