We are delighted to welcome Maria Beauchemin, Associate Architect OAA, to the team this week. Maria graduated with distinction from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Architectural Studies and a Master of Architecture and is a registered Architect with the Ontario Association of Architects and a member of the RAIC.
With a smile and optimistic view of the world, she enjoys collaborating with clients to create exceptional commercial and residential spaces with a particular specialization in commercial buildings and modern residential projects. During her time at two Ottawa architecture firms, she has collaborated with clients and colleagues on numerous commercial projects, including a major drive-through recycling facility, the Green Roof for the Ottawa Courthouse, retail locations, and government facilities. A highlight of her residential experience, she designed a unique, off-grid, contemporary-style, island cottage that fits seamlessly into the surrounding natural environment.
In her spare time, she loves to spend time with her husband and young son, fishing, snowboarding, scuba diving and traveling abroad. Maria has a passion for art and loves to paint and create art around her house. Maria is also an avid aquarist and keeps many exotic species of fish, plants, and invertebrates in her designed and manicured aquascapes. Her dream is to one day find a client who wants an aquarium integrated into the design of their space.To learn more about our team, visit our Team page.
