Randy Bens, Architect AIBC apprenticed with two of the finer architectural practices in North America - Arthur Erickson / Nick Milkovich Architects, and Busby & Associates Architects. While working for these firms, he graduated with Distinction from the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and completed his registration as an Architect.
He is a Member of the Architectural Institute of BC (Architect AIBC), and holds a Certificate of Practice. After working on large, multi million dollar projects for other firms, randy bens architect was formed in April 2005 to focus on custom single family housing and select commercial projects.
The practice has been kept intentionally small, so we can provide a high level of service while focusing on a few quality projects each year.
Each project is different because each client is different.
This is not an oversimplification.
The process begins by carefully considering all the factors that influence the project, not by selecting a style. The design unfolds as the relationship between site, program, budget, and client evolves. Our goal is to deliver beautiful spaces that are tailored to the needs of our clients, that perhaps challenge the norm, and enhance the lives of those who inhabit them.
We take great pride in the quality of our drawings, and use technology to communicate and document the work thoroughly. Concepts are tested early with hand sketches, block models and renderings. As the project develops more detailed physical and digital models are created to explore the building's composition, massing and spatial characteristics.
