studio

Nick Bray Architecture Ltd. is a Vancouver based AIBC-registered studio that strives to deliver exciting and innovative buildings that exceed our clients’ expectations.

The studio specialises in sustainable design solutions that respond to local context and environment. Passive-house techniques are used to create low-energy buildings which benefit from natural light, fresh air and warmth, whilst being built for longevity. Our space-efficient plans maximise municipal-bylaw allowances whilst being highly practical. We listen to and work for our clients to ensure that all their aspirations are identified and translated into unique and elegant buildings.

Working with Project Mint Developments, we can provide a fully integrated design-build service that is efficient and dependable, and considers budget from the outset.

We are proud to work with a team of highly skilled and motivated consultants that share our passion for quality design and construction, and together we strive to deliver exceptional buildings.
