Nick Bray Architecture Ltd. is a dynamic design firm that strives to deliver exciting and innovative buildings. Our progressive studio is focused on efficient and sustainable design with active projects ranging from single-family Passive Houses to community buildings, to mid-rise apartment and commercial complexes. With studios in Vancouver and Langford (Victoria), our projects are located throughout British Columbia.

We carefully listen to our clients to ensure that their aspirations are identified and translated into unique and elegant buildings. Value is added through our drive to elevate design quality while always considering cost. Our background in development enables us to advise clients on the economic consequences of design decisions, as well as architectural solutions. Our designs are holistic and creative, but our process is highly systematic to maximize efficiency.

Through innovation, our work strives to respond to local context, environment, and community. Wherever possible, Passive House techniques are utilized to create low-energy / low-carbon long lasting buildings that benefit from natural light, fresh air and warmth.  The aim is to improve health, wellbeing, and environmental sustainability. We value inclusion, adaptability, and accessibility for all. Our space-efficient plans maximize municipal bylaw allowances while being highly practical.

We have a strong No-Ego Design philosophy. Collaboration, flexibility, and the development of our team as unique people are key to our continued success. We are proud to work with highly skilled and motivated consultants that share our passion for quality design and construction, and together we strive to deliver exceptional buildings.

Aligning ourselves with great people and meaningful projects is at the heart of all that we do, and we stand committed to building our longstanding relationship with Habitat for Humanity.

Nick's diverse career includes international experience in design, construction, development, and humanitarian relief. Forming a team of talented designers to produce forward-thinking, beautiful, and efficient buildings, much of Nick’s inspiration derives from his love for travelling and new cultures. Nick is happiest exploring in his old Land Rover with his wife and children.
