services to clients in British Columbia since 1977, and as a small general
practice, takes pride in offering architectural services that are personable,
and strive to provide innovative design solutions responsive to the program

The members of the office of Allan Diamond, Architect endeavor to bring these qualities to all projects. The objective of the firm is to work together with the client and other consultant members in a true "team" fashion.
