About Us


Consistently innovative, ABBARCH is a full service architecture and design firm with offices in Vancouver and Toronto. Established in 1979 by two visionary partners, the company has built its reputation on quality, strong client relationships, and delivering solutions that create value for our clients.

We’re proud to attract and retain an outstanding complement of well-trained, professionally seasoned employees. Having a comprehensive, professional staff in two offices gives us the depth of human resources to meet the individual needs of each of our clients and their projects. The past 35+ years of architectural practice have established our firm’s track record of providing appropriate, strategic services to a host of clients who demand excellence in design, coordination and cost management. We are privileged to have developed long-standing relationships with a roster of organizations that have repeatedly engaged us on their projects.


Relationships First

Central to our success is the ability to listen, learn and realize the vision of our clients. We actively engage our clients through regular meetings – both on-site and in-office – and set up project-specific teams that work in close collaboration with our clients.


Careful planning, meticulous attention to detail, and numerous scheduled checks along the way have earned us a reputation for providing clients with unsurpassed quality at every stage of the design process.

Engaging Design TM

Our team draws on the diverse experience and creativity of many different individuals to produce work that provides value to our clients, resonates with end users, and demonstrates design excellence, quality of technical solutions, and fitness for intended purpose.


Our mission is to uphold the principles of excellent design and to ensure the quality of construction and effective function of the spaces we create and to provide value for our clients, and quality of experience for the end user.
