Architectural Services

Small. Medium. Large. 

Our projects vary – in size, scope, vision and purpose – and Canopy’s skills and capacities are employed selectively, tenaciously, as appropriate. While we welcome the opportunity to engage with a project from inception through completion, we also relish the investigative effort – research, feasibility, building assessment, programming – that tests and qualifies conceptual ideas before they are solidified.
