Since our inception in 1992, Acton Ostry Architects has demonstrated a continuing commitment to the making of architecture that thoughtfully responds to topography, climate, culture and lessons learned from buildings inherited from the past. The values of our practice embody a consideration to design that is without willful extravagance. Our design approach incorporates new technologies and materials that contribute to the realization of projects rooted in a considered, modernist idiom that offers sustenance to those that experience them.
Our experience encompasses a wide range of facility programming, feasibility studies, master planning, rezoning, building design, interior design and public consultation services. Our appreciation for the cultural significance of place has led to extensive experience with the rehabilitation, renovation and adaptive re-use of buildings. Our projects have been recognized through respected civic, regional and national awards programs for their sensitivity in responding to unique locations and specific client requirements.
We practice architecture in a sustainable manner and are members of the Canada Green Building Council and Passive House Canada. We focus on providing the in-depth research, rigorous analysis, innovative design, well detailed construction documents and cost control methods that are required to achieve fiscally responsible, long-lasting and sustainable buildings. Acton Ostry Architects is dedicated to the making of architecture that reflects the cultural values and aspirations of the communities we serve.
