VIA’s Studios

VIA ‘s offices are located in downtown Vancouver’s Waterfront neighbourhood; in the heart of downtown Seattle; and in San Francisco’s transforming SOMA neighborhood. We are a studio-based practice leading a variety of projects, local and beyond, including transit systems design, mixed-use infill architecture, community plans, and urban sustainability strategies.

Why Work for VIA?

  • Our dedication to building communities goes beyond design. At VIA, we believe that sustainable and thriving communities are those where residents invest and reinvest to support a positive and productive future.
  • We invests in our communities. Over the past three decades, we’ve provided thousands of hours of pro-bono design work, volunteer labor for community events and benefits, and participation on countless committees, workshops, and competitions devoted to improving the places where we work, live, and play.
  • Our team doesn’t just design transit stations, we use them too. The vast majority of our team members use transit, walking, or cycling for commuting to work and travel to business meetings.
  • We recognize the importance of building our future by building talent. We actively support students and architectural and planning interns to increase job skills and ensure qualifications for future generations of the profession.

VIA Architecture welcomes inquiries from talented professionals who are interested in joining our team.
