Since the very beginning of his career, Guillaume Fafard has been working to push the limits of thinking about urban multi-family housing. Since 2013, his firm Quinzhee architecture has been working to create playful and welcoming projects that reflect his clients and his practice. While his scope of practice remains diverse, over the years the firm has specialized in creating friendly, compact, and environmentally friendly typologies that make families want to come back to the city.
Recognized for his creativity, his flamboyance and his pragmatic solutions, Guillaume has more than one trick up his sleeve when it comes to designing or renovating homes that reflect their occupants.
Founded in 2013, Quinzhee Architecture reflects the image of this typical dwelling: playful, ecological and Nordic. Through its mandates, the firm wishes to educate its clients both architecturally and ecologically by integrating them into the creation process of their projects. For us, communication is essential and represents the foundation of an innovative creative project. By getting all parties to think about the building’s occupancy and the environment in which it is located, we can properly evaluate the range of possibilities offered by the project, and then target the most promising solution.
In order to feed its creative mind, Quinzhee offers a diversified field of expertise, collaborating on projects at all scales: from architecture to urban planning, furniture design and even ski manufacturing. We believe that the combination of disciplines is essential and necessary to nourish our passion, which is creation.
Whether it’s a house, a commercial space, an ephemeral installation or even a piece of furniture, Quinzhee puts all of its creativity at the service of the client and the achievement of its objectives. From our headquarters in the Saint-Sauveur district of Quebec City, we extend our playground well beyond the Quebec City metropolitan community. Our only prerequisite: having fun designing projects differently.
