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,
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.
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.
