Provencher_Roy, a collective
of architects, town planners,
A proven approach to research, development and innovation. A team of technical experts possessing advanced knowledge of constructive methods. A commitment to quality since 1983. Awards and distinctions across disciplines in recognition of project excellence.
A vector of change advocating creative, sustainable design for tomorrow’s living environments.
We have received nearly 200 awards ans mentions in recognition of the excellence of our projects in Québec, Canada ans abroad.
Particularly attentive to the transfer of knowledge, we pay great attention to the university environment and value our relationship with several educational institutions.
On a broader scale, we contribute to public events that aim to encourage an appreciation of design in Canada and to foster recognition of its vital role in the creation of quality physical, social and cultural environments. In addition, several of our professionals, in their capacity as citizens or patrons, sit on advisory committees, boards of directors or juries, or are otherwise involved within their professional order.
Our charitable activities are chiefly in support of the mental health and physical safety of persons in difficulty. Among the organizations we support are Tel-Jeunes and La rue des Femmes. We are also a longtime partner of Architecture sans frontières, which advocates inclusive, humanitarian architecture around the globe. For us, this support is part and parcel of our work and of our mission to create a better future for all.
Our governance structure
Provencher_Roy’s governing structure is based on an operational management system helmed by a steering committee of 10 to 12 members as well as by the managers at our different sites and a board of directors that is dedicated to the multidisciplinary development of the studios.
En 1983, Claude Provencher et Michel Roy, mus par le désir de partager une vision renouvelée de l’architecture, fondent à Montréal la firme Provencher_Roy.
In the ensuing years, the firm welcomed new partners and made acquisitions in order to create a group offering multidisciplinary and complementary services in architecture, urban planning, urban design and landscape architecture, interior design and sustainable development. This shift, begun several years ago, is intended to ensure the group’s evolution and longevity through investments in the next generation of dynamic talent. In April 2018, the firm welcomed into the fold a new partner in BBBL (Birtz Bastien Beaudoin Laforest Architectes), an acquisition that has made it possible to create an exceptional pool of expertise specifically in the health, research, and primary, secondary and higher education sectors.
The firm is known for its transdisciplinary approach in the service of a holistic experience; its authentic and sustainable interventions; and its vision for the creation of urban living environments that benefit the collective well-being.
