Gates-Suter Architects Inc. is a dedicated, award winning architectural practice based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Our portfolio of work includes varied project types and scales, new construction and renovation, and draws from 25 years design and construction experience, both in our own firm and at other offices. Our involvement is in all phases of a project, from initial programming and design through construction.

We see architecture as both a response to and a critical part of the cultural landscape, and as such endeavour to make architecture about the multiple things it embraces - program, budget, site/ place, habitation, experience, sustainability, form, space, materials and assemblies, technology, scale. This list continues to evolve and expand, as each project - and client - layers the architectural exploration and therefore the architectural response with their own unique requirements and aspirations.

In addition to practice, Joanne is currently teaching design studios at UBC School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.
