We believe in the promise of people-centered, sustainable design

At Canopy, our work is pragmatic yet imaginative, influenced by a collective design process that reconsiders what’s possible through exploration and research. Our solutions are reflective of the people we serve—whether we’re designing a new green home, a multi-unit housing campus, or a space that celebrates community. With every project, we aim to achieve a thoughtful, enduring design expressive of context and place.

Canopy

Canopy really takes the time and the energy to think through all the details of a project. Not just from a design perspective but also from a bigger picture perspective. They care about the communities and it comes through.

Our Team

Engaged, participative, collective—that’s Canopy

Our team is as unique as the clients and communities we serve. While Canopy’s roots lie in social impact and equity-based design, we have built an architectural staff coming from varied professional, academic and cultural backgrounds. Each project benefits from our diversity of experiences, our deep curiosity and the global design perspective we nurture through research and travel. Together, they allow for an informed and open-minded belief in what’s possible.

Canopy

Using very simple materials and just a little bit of color, Canopy can create a very strong building. It is a testament to a good designer. They have a clear vision from the beginning.
