MOTIV Architects Inc. is Tracey Mactavish and Asher DeGroot; friends and colleagues for many years, they bring over three decades of design experience in Vancouver and around the world. They founded MOTIV with a common passion that thoughtful design connects people and transforms communities.
We are intentionally community focused.
MOTIV works with educators, community leaders, community organizations and non-profit groups to develop designs that are a direct response to community need. We are also drawn to people and projects that are pushing the boundaries of innovation - and are looking for like-minded collaborators who actively pursue solutions that take a different path than the status quo.
This includes education buildings – colleges, schools & children’s spaces; First Nations community projects; churches and spiritual spaces; community centres and gathering spaces, cultural buildings and arts space; rural and farm-based buildings and planning; affordable and supportive housing.
