Paul Hammond


Paul is a principal architect of LHRA with 29 years’ experience collaborating with post-secondary institutions, public library boards and non-profit housing agencies. He began his career in Toronto, involved with the design and construction of academic buildings, libraries, and public schools. In 2005 he moved to BC with his family to join the firm. Paul has led the firm’s design team though multiple academic and community library projects, including complex renovations, transformative expansions, and new community buildings. Since 2008, Paul has also focused on the design and development of affordable rental housing that supports diverse needs of individuals, families, and communities across BC, such as Camas Gardens Supportive Housing, Fort St. John Passive House Family Housing, and Crosstown Affordable Mixed-use Housing development. Paul is currently managing our LHRA team in collaboration with Two Row Architect (Lead) and Teeple Architects on the National Centre for Indigenous Laws expansion at the University of Victoria; an important landmark project, the first of its kind in Canada.

Paul’s collaborative design approach searches to link aspirational goals with meaningful contextual relationships and sustainable practices, creating spirited places to live, work, and learn. He is a certified passive house designer, a past member of the City of Victoria Advisory Design Panel, and he continues to advocate for those less fortunate through his community service.
