gh3* is a peer-recognized and award-winning Canadian design practice. Principals Pat Hanson and Raymond Chow lead an office team that includes architects, landscape architects, designers, and technical staff. Our office works in the increasingly complex realm where architecture, urbanism and landscape overlap. We design with a modernist’s eye to order, beauty, and social possibility, an environmentalist’s awareness of sustainability and long-term thinking.
gh3* has been awarded Governor General’s Medals for the Borden Park Pavilion in Edmonton and the Boathouse Studio on Stony Lake in Ontario. We have completed projects at every scale, from small park pavilions and private houses to large civic and transit infrastructure, most recently Canada's first natural swimming pool for the City of Edmonton.
Our energetic and interdisciplinary team is committed to the best in creative practice. We bring a tailored, client-centred approach to every stage of the design and construction process, with the aim of achieving pragmatic, poetic, environmentally-responsible, and aesthetically powerful design solutions. We believe that excellent design is an essential part of everyday life, and that spatially and visually engaging places can inspire joy and civic pride.
