Initial Design

Good planning does not begin with an abstract and arbitrary scheme that it seeks to impose on a community; it begins with a knowledge of existing conditions and opportunities.
- Lewis Mumford

We believe that gathering all of the site information and determining constraints at the outset is a critical first step and crucial in the success of a project. Through ongoing collaboration, our team works closely with our clients to analyze all opportunities which then inform the initial design concepts. Moving through the design process, we develop floor plans and elevations with a focus on a renowned design process that merges innovative design with practical, client-focused solutions.

Detailed Design

Technical drawings and specifications are completed and coordinated with the consultant team. Prior to being issued to clients, construction documents are carefully reviewed through an internal quality control process. Building permits and drawings are then issued for construction.

Construction

This phase involves a continuous commitment to the project management, timelines, and follow through. Our team remains active throughout this entire phase with ongoing construction administration and field reviews to assist in ensuring that construction complies with the original intent of the design, errors are avoided on site, and projects are completed to highest quality design standards and building codes.

Project Completion and beyond

At Keystone Architecture, we believe in creating solutions-driven developments of lasting value. Seeing the culmination of our client’s projects through to completion is important to us. Witnessing those same projects standing strong many years later is a testament to who we are. Our greatest compliment is having clients return to us for future projects. View all projects

Looking back on the Stillwood Camp gym in Lindell Beach, BC. Designed to resemble a traditional barn and silo, this 2-storey gymnasium acts as the center of activity for the camp and features a 40’ climbing tower in the silo.

We are excited to reveal this video that expresses the remarkable work completed by our dedicated team, @j.floris_construction_ltd, and talented subconsultants on the Doug and Fran MacDonald Langley Hospice Residence. We worked alongside the @langleyhospice Society and Fraser Health Authority to thoughtfully design this distinctive, contemporary space with the goal of merging functionality with cost control measures and a deep connection to its beautiful, natural surroundings.

Another exciting rendering to share! Introducing Podium – an inventive and contemporary condo in collaboration with @whitetailhomes. Embedded in the flourishing city of Maple Ridge, Podium brings a West Coast modernist appeal to the community through multi-level height variations, robust pillars, and a carefully selected colour pallet of bold earth tones and textures.
