A collection of Kamloops and Kelowna’s Bluegreen Architecture

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working on Bluegreen Architecture projects for a number of years now. They’re extremely professional to work with and their designs are both innovative and progressive.

For this latest visual showcase there were five projects that were requested: Stollery and Colours in Spirit Square, The Hue Hotel, 155 Oriole Place, the interiors of Golder, and the new CMHA buildings in Salmon Arm. There was some nervousness over whether we would have a window of opportunity due to wildfire smoke; luckily with some heavy rains we were given that chance.
