Established in 2010, Lebel & Bouliane (formerly Architects Luc Bouliane) is a full-service design firm focused on academic buildings, commercial interiors and custom residential projects. Our strength lies in finding innovative, beautiful, and contemporary solutions for new or renovated mid-size building environments.
Our belief that buildings are part of our living cities, neighbourhoods and campuses, requiring seamless integration to their context, an intense sense of place and purpose, with an integrative approach to sustainable building solutions. We seek clients who want to actively engage their built environment and create a cultural experience of space, community and purpose — and we take great pride in being a part of achieving it together.
