Background

Paul Wright, principal of ACI Wright Architects commenced his own design company in 1992 after gaining wonderful diverse experience at various architectural firms throughout his career. His practice enjoyed a variety of project types in and around Toronto but also expanded overseas with the design for a World Trade Centre in Oman and innovative assisted housing for the less fortunate in South Africa. Although the majority of projects are in Ontario, Wright was again asked to go beyond the local environment and design the restoration of a 200 year old villa in Barbados which won the praise of the local historical society and was featured in Island Life Magazine. Since then, through the usual referrals, ACI has enjoyed further projects in the Caribbean including a duplex in Barbados; a hotel conference facility, an apartment building utilising reclaimed grey water and solar technology and villas in Grenada; and a vacation home in Goia, Brazil.

In 2011 ACI Wright Architects expanded licensing to include Manitoba due to further referrals which started with the 6 storey hotel for Hilton by the Winnipeg Airport.

ACI Wright Architects, a small hands on firm, remains strongly committed to our valued clients and friends who now span coast to coast and from North America to South America.

Philosophy

ACI Wright Architects philosophy is one of obvious simplicity: "Ask questions, Listen carefully, Communicate at all times and most of all, Keep it simple." This philosophy has served our clients well and is one that we encourage in all our relationships with clients, fellow professionals and on-site trades persons alike. We firmly believe that all the players involved in the realisation of the built form have an integral part to play, and encouraging each to do so can only serve the client well. We are, and strive to remain, a company that is rooted in reality: The reality of delivering a good service at a fair cost.

ACI Wright Architects relies heavily upon a well-seasoned group of consultants for the delivery of a complete service to our clients. The nature of this relationship between us and our consultants extends to include our clients or client groups who form a critical part of our design team.

ACI Wright Architects strives to service its clients with a sense of design flair, delivered through sound management and accounting practices and employing the latest in technology and people skills.
