We Have a Unique Approach to Architecture
Our primary objective is to translate our clients’ desires and needs into innovative, sustainable and unique building solutions. Our philosophy is based on successful collaborations with our clients and a highly integrated team of consultants from project initiation to post-occupancy.
We believe that outstanding design and economic feasibility need to go hand in hand. We understand that any building has to be effective and follow the most resource conscious solution while driving innovation within the limitations of the budget. Through an integrative design process and a highly skilled team we find solutions that can be used flexibly and effectively, incrementally innovating proven building technology to build what is needed and to eliminate any extraneous construction.
Lang Wilson Practice in Architecture Culture (LWPAC) was established in Vancouver in 1999 as a multidisciplinary design firm. Ever since it has been operating at the intersection of architecture and culture bringing both local and international experience to every project.
LWPAC is an accomplished and experienced full service design firm, licensed to practice architecture in British Columbia, New York and Germany. We have practiced and taught architecture in Berlin, New York, Barcelona, Valparaiso, Beijing and Vancouver. Following a 15 year career that has been equally split between university and practice around the world we bring an unusually broad perspective of knowledge and international exposure to each project. Since early 2008 we have been focusing exclusively on full time practice.
LWPAC specializes in innovative architectural design. We deliver integrated and holistic solutions to any project. We have worked on a broad range of projects – from single family homes to housing, art installation and public projects, and large scale urban planning. Our work has been exhibited and published around the world.
The firm has executed award winning institutional and residential projects both nationally and internationally. Among other awards we were the winners of the 2008 Governor General’s Medal in Architecture, of both Lieutenant Governor’s Medal and Innovation Awards, and of the Home of the Year Award from New York’s Architecture Magazine for the ROAR_one housing project. In 2012 LWPAC won the Western Living Designer / Architect of the Year Award.
