Vancouver-based Ciccozzi Architecture focuses on a collaborative, co-operative and interactive design process to provide a balance of design and economy to its creative solutions.
Robert Ciccozzi founded the company, which was rebranded in 2015, in 1999 after several years of industry experience. Today, the firm has grown to a team of 33 that takes on between 30 and 40 projects annually.
The majority of the firm’s clients are developers “who are looking to us for our design expertise and our ability to take a project through city approvals and construction,” says Ciccozzi.
The firm also works with private clients on custom homes. These clients, he says, are drawn by the firm’s process, which is more personal, as well as by its design expertise and attention to detail.
Getting involved in each project’s design, Ciccozzi will typically initiate the design and then review it as it moves through design development, and in some cases, through construction. “We provide a balance of detailed design and technical expertise because we believe architecture is where art and technology intersect.”
Among the firm’s successes are the Westwood Mixed-use Tower “because it was a successful project with respect to the design; Hyde Park Townhouses because of the high level of design and the challenge of working around the high percentage of retained trees.”
Ciccozzi says he considers all of the firm’s high end custom residences as among its great successes for the level of design and detail each requires.
“Our main achievement, though, is building strong and successful working relationships with our long term major clients.”
The firm was recently recognized with a “2017 New City Design Award” from the City of Surrey for the Hyde Park Townhomes project and is continuing to grow and establish itself as a top multi-residential design firm within the province.
