Developing an appropriate narrative for indigenous architecture.

Peter Hildebrand provides architectural services for several different public and private building types including commercial, residential, civic, cultural and educational. Primarily engaged with conceptual design work utilizing computer modeling, photo imaging and rendering, Peter also leads the preparation of public presentation materials, construction documents and material specifications.

Peter recognizes each community is distinct and that each structure should reflect that uniqueness. To accomplish this, Peter continuously rethinks the way buildings are designed and executed. He has been privileged to collaborate with several First Nations on the design and development of multiuse community facilities throughout British Columbia, including the award-winning Snxastwilxtn Centre and Outma Sqilx’w Cultural School for Penticton Indian Band.

  • Phil also shared a letter from the retiring Principal of Norquay School. This school is one we have supported with two main initiatives over many years: the buddy reading program and food support for families in need. The principal stated that our club's support has been "a true blessing", ensuring the students have had wonderful help, whether it be ensuring their bellies are full to start their day, connecting with a mentor through reading, or ensuring they had the materials to get through the trying covid times and learning remotely.
