Architecture Counsel is a full service architectural practice centred on serving the higher education and hospitality sectors.

Our work is based on a thorough analysis of programmatic needs and strategic vision; balanced by a firm belief that thoughtfully planned social spaces can add an unparalleled richness to one’s daily experience.  Planning spaces that continuously encourage active and passive engagement with nature, friends, colleagues, and classmates lies at the core of what we do.

Architecture Counsel Principal, Oliver Beck, brings 18 years of professional experience to his projects. His professional career began in the educational and heritage sectors through positions with the Government of Manitoba in both their Infrastructure & Transportation and Culture & Heritage Ministries. In both roles, Oliver functioned as a steward of buildings – first for their technical aspects, then for their heritage significance. Moving to a traditional architectural practice, Oliver applied collective experiences from previous positions within the context of large higher education assignments. Oliver then served as Senior Consultant with Educational Consulting Services for a number of years prior to the start of Architecture Counsel.
