Established in 1997, Geoff Hodgins Architect is a small, dynamic firm located in Perth Ontario. With a diverse portfolio, we specialize in sustainable design and the adaptive reuse of historic buildings. Projects include the re-purposing of a number of nineteenth century structures including One Sherbrooke Street Perth, where the firm is located, and the Smiths Falls Railway Station, now housing the Station Theatre. The firm was instrumental is establishing PerthWorks,a sustainable neighbourhood demonstration project in Perth and, since it's inception in 2003, has collaborated with the Advanced Housing Program at Algonquin College, which focuses on sustainable and affordable housing technologies. We design sustainable custom homes, including off-grid residences and alternative construction such as straw-bale, focusing on Eastern Ontario but we have reached as far as the Inuit community Kuujjuaq on Ungava Bay.
Geoff has received awards from the Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation and the International Winter Cities Institute and has served as a guest critique at Algonquin College's Green Architecture program and Carleton University's Architecture program.
