Meet Trace.

I’m about ‘making’.

It all started with swinging a hammer during job site summers and several years of construction out of high school. A desire to influence the ‘building process’ led to drafting courses at UFV and BCIT, and then expanding curiosity into built form and space to studying architecture through Athabasca University while in the RAIC Syllabus.

After 14 years at an architecture firm developing my skills under excellent architects’ mentorship, I decided to locate my design firm in my hometown of Chilliwack, BC from where I have been honoured to be entrusted with designing many fine projects.

In ‘off time’, I’ll be found with my family, often enjoying nature. 

Or driving by a Designworks project to see how it’s progressing.

Or sketching through a design challenge on your project.

Kind regards,
Trace Wisse
