ABOUT US

KRA - Kirsten Reite Architect Inc. is a Vancouver-based architecture firm that specializes in many aspects of architectural design, planning, and interior environments. Our vision for design excellence, attention to detail, determination, and a desire to contribute to the betterment of the human condition brings our team together.

Our team has been responsible for such notable projects as the Chinook Regional Hospital Addition, the Haida Gwaii Hospital and Health Centre - Xaayda Gwaay Ngaaysdll Naay, and is currently the architectural compliance team lead on the New Edmonton Hospital and Health Campus Project.  While we are known for our proficiency and experience in designing healthcare environments, we focus on projects of all shapes and sizes where we can add value.

As such, we are developing a diverse portfolio of work ranging from commercial, heritage and building renewal, hotel/residential and education projects. Our current work spans across Western Canada with projects in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
