Three incredible buildings, two commercial and one residential are part architectural winners that were created by the three winners of the Governor General’s Medals in Architecture recently awarded. We have a particular admiration for the Tula House on Quadra Island with its sharp lines and James Bond type appeal. Just imagine that view on a stormy Spring afternoon, it’s mesmerizing isn’t it.

The three (four when collaboration is counted) firms follow below.
