Who We Are —Our story, Our Approach

Eric Pattison, Architect AIBC, began in the building field as a carpenter. Perhaps it is due to this hands-on experience that he prefers the opportunity to guide a project through its entirety –  from concept, through approval, to construction and completion.

Registered in 1990, Eric spent several years with larger architectural firms working on complex commissions before establishing a practice in the mid-1990s.

As a native of British Columbia, Eric has a deep knowledge of the rich provincial landscape and history. From working as a Gulf Island carpenter, through large developments and now to detailed architecture, he has melded his interests, experience and skills to design comfortable and creative spaces that bring eloquent expression to client desires and respect for the story of the place.

Pattison Architecture has consciously chosen to operate as a small practice to be more architecturally engaged and client responsive.  This model also gives our interns and technologists experience with the full range of project experience, from start to finish.

We offer services for small to medium commercial and municipal projects, private houses and multi-family residential. We have particular expertise and interest in heritage architecture restoration and rehabilitation.

We support sustaining the built environment through revitalizing old buildings and using reclaimed building materials wherever possible. Integration of sustainable environmental objectives into new and existing buildings is a key principle of our practice.
