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 utilizing reclaimed grey water and solar technology, villas & Luxury in Grenada; and a vacation home in Goia, Brazil.
Joining the firm in 2001 Linda Okum has been a strong asset and rising to senior level to complement the team.
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. Then in 2015 at the request of Best Western expanded licensing to include Nova Scotia starting with a renovation to a Best Western Hotel in Truro.
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.
ACI Wright Architects are proud members of the Ontario Association of Architects, The Manitoba Association of Architects, the Nova Scotia Association of Architects, the Canada Green Building Council, and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada.
