Our Story


Our Work

S2 Architecture is an established firm with over 20 years of history in design excellence. We are a full service architectural and interior design firm with studios in Calgary and Edmonton, engaged in inspired and innovative design and planning. Our work
spans a broad range of building and project types and the foundation of our success is deeply rooted in the delivery of creative design solutions for our clients, our communities and the environment.

Who We Are

We design beautiful spaces and buildings that work.  Our people are talented, motivated individuals who bring energy and passion to our culture along with a collaborative spirit to our work. S2 aspires to cultivating a fun and creative work environment that encourages creativity, innovation and teamwork.

What We Do

We are innovative by design.  Creative responses to new or old problems lead to innovation, but innovation for its own sake is nothing more than a novelty or a passing fashion. True innovation involves reframing the problem at hand and providing a unique response that addresses a design problem over the long term. Our design process strives for architectural excellence through unique solutions tailored to our client’s requirements while enriching and contributing to the built environment.

We are collaborators.  Each project brings its own unique set of opportunities and constraints – elements that form the fertile ground from which a design response springs and grows. Collaboration and alignment between all involved in support of the defined project goals is critical to a successful outcome.

Our Vision

Our approach is one of inclusion, respect and collaboration and we strive towards creating enduring architecture that provides meaningful and moving contributions to the built environment.  Our success is deeply rooted in the following:

Hands-on leadership. Our firm is led by five partners who bring their individual talents and expertise to each project. Their combined experience across all building types and sectors results in a strong, cohesive partnership.

Impressive client list. Our clients are made up of government bodies, boards of education, institutions, corporations and private developers.

We are solution based. We are effective at working with the financial realities and challenges in the design and construction industry. We have developed a disciplined approach to cost and schedule control.

It’s all about our clients. More than 85 percent of our work is made up of repeat clients whose ongoing commissions are testimony to the effort we put into and the importance we place on client satisfaction and exceptional client services. We listen to our clients.

Responsible and thoughtful design. S2 is a strong voice for innovative thinking and sustainable leadership – a discussion that benefits from the collaboration of people with unique perspectives and skills.
