1977 was the beginning of Stewart Howard Architects Inc, beginning under the name of Stewart Howard Architects. The firm is based out of a building of its own design in Vancouver’s South East False Creek (405-375 West 5th Avenue), the South Cambie neighbourhood. This local Architectural Firm has provided its creative designs internationally. From the Greater Vancouver area to Whistler & Coastal British Columbia to as far as the United States & the Caribbean.

“Stuart Howard Architects is committed to developing high quality, cost-effective,¬†innovative design solutions for its clients.”

As the firm has grown, their emphasis over the years has focused on Residential buildings and Heritage restoration and rehabilitation. In its time, Stewart Howard Architects Inc has completed a variety of Single-Family & Multi-Family projects.

“The various members of the firm are multiple award winners in residential design and Heritage adaptive re-use and restoration work.”

Throughout its 35 year history, the firm has really stressed quality design, user participation & community involvement. The goal of a team approach to every job is the focus of this firm. Input from all members of the firm and participation in the process by the client & user group has lead them to success!
