WELCOME, WE ARE
MT-ARCH

Founded in 2005, MT-Arch is a value-focused architecture firm based in Calgary, that blends experience and innovation to create extraordinary projects. Offering full-service architecture, we discover the true potential in our projects and ensure that potential is brought to life.

Striking the balance between forward-thinking and practicality we deliver high quality sought after products while respecting the communities they reside in. Our projects range from low-rise to high-rise, from residential to commercial, from industrial to mixed-use.

MISSION

At MT-Arch, we are more than just fantastic team players. Our support system excels beyond a workplace, we believe this filters directly into our trust for one another and our leadership as a firm.
We work to transform breakdowns into breakthroughs with communication and empowerment on a horizontal platform.

 

Create: from nothing we invent possibility
Design: we translate possibility into plans
Steward: to manage and guide the process

VISION

Our Vision is to create a world where the goals of communities, the environment and builders are in alignment. Through technology and well-thought out design, we see sustainability and community engagement as opportunities to encourage continued investment in the built environment.

VALUES

Our foundation is built on integrity, community and a commitment that people live extraordinary lives. At MT-Arch we do not live, we thrive. We do not work hard, we work passionately and efficiently. We are not a team, we are family. And our overriding objective is experience and consistent improvement.

 

“I want to be thoroughly used up when I die”

– George Bernard Shaw

Integrity is doing everything we can to keep our commitments and doing things others may expect us to do even if we haven't agreed by it. When we fall short of keeping them, discovering the impact it creates and taking responsibility by being in communication. We believe that commitments are what breathes life into our goals, and by cultivating a culture that honours commitments, we empower ourselves to create extraordinary accomplishments.


Excellence in defined as At MT-Arch we are firm believers of constant improvement, learning from our experiences with people, projects and challenges of life to shape and define educated solutions for our futures. Focusing on the journey rather than the destination. It is through this commitment that we can continue to drive towards our vision, and be confident in its ongoing realization and growth.


AT MT-Arch we believe in promoting connection and a sense of relatedness between everyone who is impacted by our work and within our lives. By intentionally encouraging dialogue between people and listening for different points of view, we create the space for people to understand and respect each other. Our goal is to create communities where people treat each other as family and support one and other in living.


We are a collaborative space encouraging freedom of contribution and creation. We believe the way to shape a life lived powerfully is to declare a possibility in reality with language, and then live into it by sharing it with the ones around you. Defining our way of life by us and for us.
“By radical transparency, I mean giving most everyone the ability to see most everything. To give people anything less than total transparency would make them vulnerable to other’s spin and deny them the ability to figure things out for themselves. Radical transparency reduces harmful office politics and the risks of bad behaviour because bad behaviour is more likely to take place behind closed doors than out in the open.” -Ray Dalio
By constantly revisiting the question "why that way" MT-Arch is committed to discovering new ways to effectively impact the built environment for the benefit of the environment, the individuals that make up the team, its investors as well as the broader community and society. Innovation is more than just systems and technologies, it is a culture of curiosity and inquiry.
