KELOWNA – As the province’s population continues to grow and the economy attempts to find stability amidst a volatile start to the decade, housing continues to be one of the most important issues facing British Columbians.

In Western Canada, options are desperately needed to accommodate working families, newly settled immigrants, and seniors. To combat this issue and extend the company’s experience, award-winning full-service architectural practice Voshell Architecture and Design Inc. has expanded its services to the Thompson Okanagan area.

“One of our goals over the last few years has been to gain more work in BC,” said DeAnna Voshell, Managing Partner at Voshell Architecture and Design. “The last two years have been our best years ever and our revenue has increased roughly 65 per cent making it ample time for expansion.”

Established in 2008 as ISIS Design and Architecture, the firm eventually became Voshell Architecture and Design and grew substantially in size and experience, having successfully completed a broad range of private and public sector projects in both Alberta and BC. The company has its head office in Fort Saskatchewan and as of 2021, it also has satellite offices in downtown Edmonton and Kelowna.

“Naturally, Vancouver is a highly saturated market and, with our focus being multi-family, we believe the Okanagan is a primary location to grow and apply our services to a highly appealing market for seniors and new families alike,” said Voshell. “Our senior housing centres are particularly well liked by the health industry, and we are excited to help fill this growing need.”

Principal architect at Voshell Architecture and Design, Todd Voshell has over 35 years of experience in the architectural and construction industry in Canada and the US, which includes sustainable buildings (LEED certified and Net Zero), recreational facilities and cultural, civic projects. Todd also has a preexisting connection to Kelowna, as a member of the city’s WHL team the Kelowna Wings in 1980.

Currently, Voshell Architecture and Design has several unique, purpose-built projects on the go, including a recreational ice rink facility in Nisku, a health and wellness centre in Edmonton and a net zero affordable housing project in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta.

Obviously, 2023 will be an exciting year for the company and once these projects are completed, Voshell Architecture and Design will have created and contributed to the kind of flourishing, exemplary communities needed throughout Canada.

“As one of the hottest secondary markets in BC, there is so much opportunity to develop these communities in the Okanagan and create a stronger future for the province,” said Voshell. “We have the expertise, and we want our projects to be shining beacons for the people they serve.”
