Founded over forty years ago, AVRP Skyport is an international architectural, engineering and interior design firm recognized for excellence in design, innovation in technology, and commitment to the communities in which we practice through social architecture.

Our reputation for excellence, multi- disciplinary teamwork, and work capacity has enabled AVRP Skyport to partner with other leading architectural firms across North America and Asia.

Before recent consolidation driven by the information technology, AVRP Skyport had offices in San Diego, Los Angeles, Ventura and Tijuana Mexico. A year ago, to strengthen its position AVRP Skyport combined all of its US offices into one AVRP Skyport office and created AVRP Skyport Architecture Inc., a branch in Vancouver, Canada.

Tomasz Anielski heads the AVRP Skyport Canada office. Tomasz has over 30 years experience in all phases of the architectural process, from design excellence to project delivery. He has lived and worked in Germany, the USA and Canada. Since 1993, Tomasz has practiced in Canada and the USA, gaining extensive experience and knowledge of various jurisdictions, their approval processes, and an array of inter-disciplinary building codes and requirements.

Our team has experience working with a variety of urban projects in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, and Kelowna as well as in rural Revelstoke and West Kelowna. Projects include zoning reform, master plans, waterfront plans, downtown towers, eco-districts, village market halls, and facilitating public charrettes.

We are inspired by British Columbia and Alberta’s dramatic landscapes, bold city-making, and generous people that have cultivated its own place-making expectations that allow for architectural excellence.

AVRP Skyport promotes a design philosophy that focuses on the user as an integral part of the design process. At every step in our process, we encourage interaction and communication as a means to identify issues and opportunities.

We seek to clearly understand how the particular project will be utilized so that this knowledge can be used a primary factor in the shaping of the project environment.

Every project is approached on its own terms drawing inspiration from the particularities of both physical and cultural environment as well as the unique demands of client and user.

This approach stems from our conviction that successful environments can only be created with the blending of practical needs and context.

Depending on the requirements of each unique situation we seek to create energized, lively, or contemplative spaces whether within enclosed buildings or the spaces between buildings.

We are concerned less with stylistic or theoretical preconceptions than with appropriateness of form and quality of space.
