Culture

Our thriving culture at Thinkspace is based on a deep level of caring. We are genuinely interested and invested in the people we work with, the clients we serve, and the communities we help to shape. Curiosity is embedded in our culture, and we are inspired by possibility.

We are dedicated to continuous learning, and are driven by the unique challenges of each project – new problems mean new learning and the opportunity to shift the paradigm.

We are true believers in life-long learning at Thinkspace. The practice encourages and supports staff in attending continuing education courses in order to advance in their chosen career paths. Several staff members have become Registered Architects, LEED® certified or received Accredited Learning Environment Planner (ALEP) designations since they started with Thinkspace.

Team members frequently contribute to lectures and conferences, at local, national, and international levels. Lunch-and-learns and design charettes are popular events in our office, and help us to keep up with the latest products, technologies, and architectural and planning trends and ideas.

We’re also active members of the communities where we work and live. Our staff regularly participate in local fundraising and design initiatives, as well as activities such as the Vancouver Sun Run, Pink Shirt Day, and our annual camping trip, which has been running for nearly a decade.
