Comox Valley Architecture and Design


We believe in sustainable design that solves problems. We strive to develop progressive, efficient and original design solutions for the places we live, work, and play. These solutions are pragmatic and intrinsically dependant on the environments they are built in and are developed to sustain the ways in which we interact with our built environment.
