Founded in 1980, Iredale Group Architecture is an award-winning, full service architecture firm, serving clients across Canada, from our offices in Vancouver, Victoria, and Whistler. We offer our clients a full array of architectural services, including: architectural design, interior design, master planning, LEED facilitation, heritage rehabilitation, restoration and adaptive re-use, as well as structural engineering and building envelope science. Our firm's focus remains on creating spaces that reflect the flow of human interaction, that promote culture and community, and reflects the structure's contextual environment. A passionate ambassador for the environment, Iredale Group Architecture investigates the integration of innovative sustainability opportunities into every project.
Three established architectural practices -- Blewett Dodd Architecture Ltd., Ib G. Hansen Architect Ltd. and Dennis Maguire Architect -- merged their resources with those of Iredale Group in 2006, 2007, and 2012 respectively, adding a significant complement of projects to the firm's diverse portfolio.
in 2013, Iredale Group Architecture merged with Chang Holovsky Architects (Victoria BC). Philip Chang and Ladi Holovsky bring a wealth of experience to our firm in the areas of education, social housing, community projects, First Nations work, and light industrial projects. Ladi's pursuit and devotion to educational institutions that incorporate the concepts of 21st Century Learning have helped several British Columbia school districts advance their educational programs. Philip has a long established relationship with several First Nation communities and municipalities and is passionate about helping these clients to create culturally rich facilities.
Iredale Group's clients include school districts, municipalities, and regional districts, as well as corporations, institutions, provincial and federal government agencies, and private individuals. Our projects include cultural, educational, commercial, and residential facilities, as well as First Nations multi-use community complexes.
As active members of both the Canada Green Building Council and the Cascadia Region Green Building Council, all of us at Iredale Group are dedicated to designing community places that incorporate sustainable design principles and that contribute to the vitality of community life: places that bring people of all ages together, that facilitate chance encounters and cultivate our social interactions and cultural connections.
"Successful community places nurture our universal need to belong and fulfill the desire to be part of something larger than ourselves. They are places where 'you claim it and it claims you', where ideas are shared, memories are made, and friendships are fostered." (Richard Iredale)
