Campos Leckie Studio is an interdisciplinary design office based in Vancouver, Canada. This partnership was founded in 2009 from a growing body of collaborative work by two graduates of the University of British Columbia School of Architecture - Javier Campos and Michael Leckie. The office engages in design at a variety of scales and media including built form, interiors, branding, and communication design. Its methodology is founded on the relationship between the opportunities afforded in the material production of a project and a disciplined engagement in the internal design logic. Committed to a rigorous process of discovery, the core of the practice relies on a deeply rooted fascination with the act of making.
The office engages digital fabrication techniques as a means to expand its ability to explore form making while also adding flexibility and efficiency to the design process. Expanding from the design for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics exhibition High Performance, the office has continued to develop a number of derivative installations for its commercial projects.
Over the last decade the principals have shown a dedication to design that has been recognized in publications including Canadian Architect, Azure, Communication Design, Dwell, and Western Living, among others. Their work has also won numerous awards and has been included in a number of exhibitions, most recently Twenty+Change, a national design exhibition of emerging design firms in Canada.
Committed to sustainable design agenda, the office’s environmental engagement extends to both the local and global community. In addition to a commitment to donate one percent of net revenues to sustainable charities, the principals donate their time and skills to various projects and institutions around the world.
