A design philosophy with a holistic approach.


The Compass Architecture design process begins with a reading of the land. Each site has a story that frames the process, proposing an innovative solution for the build. We design in harmony with the site, its natural forms, the community and the environment.


Our intuitive, methodical process gathers information and parameters to satisfy the brief. We strive to fulfil our clients’ needs and visions, meet budget and design principles, and achieve functionality and fluidity in our spaces.


Compass Architecture spaces are designed to enhance quality of life, create a sense of connectedness, and generate a positive sense of community.

"Nathalie is an experienced and committed professional. Compass Architecture is passionate about its work and about sustainable designs that are also beautiful spaces for clients to live in and enjoy."
