The firm

Parka

Founded in 2013 by two Quebec architects, PARKA is a firm of architecture and design whose know-how and aesthetic sensibility are mixed to a collaborative approach. Dialogue and cooperation are keys  for the firm. Parka places a high value on the human dimension of the project, placing users, their needs and aspirations at the center of the design. Parka is interested in designing thoughtful spaces and sustainable architecture, optimizing the user experience and minimizing environmental impacts.

Our mission

Our philosophy

We want to contribute to the evolution of design practice by placing human needs and aspirations at the center of our reflection. We use a collaborative approach to promote sensitive and creative solutions. Building on exchanges and collaborations with designers from various disciplines, from urban design to graphic design, we strive to develop adapted solutions that meet the needs of our clients. Thus, beyond the aesthetic and formal considerations that define the visual aspect of our projects, we rely on a personalised approach to each of them.

We aim at designing spaces, installations and objects that are positive additions to the lives of our clients and the community. Through our creative process, we want to improve people's lives.
