Damien Kiely


Irrepressible. Quick-witted. Explorer.

Damien believes architecture demands a healthy dose of humility: a willingness to be wrong, to adapt, to be comfortable with uncertainty. Accordingly, he brings lots of experience and as little ego as possible to each new project, whether it’s an ambitious new-build or a historical refurbishment. In pursuit of legible, refined buildings, he values the small details as much as the big picture.

Originally from Cork, Ireland, Damien was educated in Dublin, worked in London and Australia, and travelled across Europe, Asia, India, Australia and New Zealand before making his way to Vancouver. Along the way, he collected several hobbies — hiking, scuba-diving and, most recently, snowboarding. Away from work, he is a handy cook, a gym habitué and an avid podcast listener.
