A Vancouver Native, Shane returned home after completing his Masters of Architecture at the University of Calgary. For Shane, the practice of architecture is both a very personal endeavour and an open and popular responsibility. His ambition to achieve substantive and generous architecture is served by his approach to design which balances optimism and pragmatism, and his belief that evolution and reflection are integral to the ongoing maturation of the designer and the practice as a whole.
Shane actively engages in new and speculative design methods including: BIM, parametric modelling, material technologies and digital fabrication. He is also a hobbyist furniture maker and carpenter.
