About Us

Established in 1976

NSDA Architects is a full service architectural firm located in Vancouver, BC.

The Firm is founded on the principles of personalized service to our clients, a teamwork approach, a commitment to quality, and the effective delivery of our client’s projects.

A six-time recipient of the Lieutenant Governor’s award, NSDA prides itself on the diversity of its portfolio. It is this diversity – in scope, complexity and budget – that allows the firm to grow both professionally and creatively.

Our firm subscribes to a generalist approach to architecture. We endeavour to expand our architectural experience and undertake a diversity of commissions throughout the province that vary in scope, program complexity, budgets and client goals. We believe this approach allows us to bring a fresh perspective to each project and facilitates an exchange of ideas between various types of commissions.

Our projects include: high-rise and multi-family residential developments, mixed-use and commercial, civic and community buildings, special-needs residential, affordable housing, seniors retirement residences, healthcare facilities, as well as urban design, zoning and large scale master planning.
