Group 161 is a premium architecture firm based out of British Columbia. Our three firms specialize in residential, mixed-use, commercial, and civic buildings, ranging from wood-frame multi-family homes to residential high-rise projects.

Defying the edges

Push the boundaries of design—down to the very last detail—and create memorable, sustainable and functional spaces. Let’s build meaningful connections and transform the places where we work, live and play.

DESIGNING FOR THE FUTURE

Architecture is the fire that ignites us and allows our creativity to flourish. It’s the joy we find in doing the impossible, and when we encounter a challenge, we don’t just go back to the drawing board—we own the drawing board.
