About Us

Salim Merchant (a Calgary-based architect)

Story of Merchant Architecture (Calgary-based Architects)

The idea for Merchant Architecture was sparked many years ago when I was a young boy.

My father was an architect and I would spend hours watching and accompanying him to project sites as he worked with his clients to help them achieve their dreams.

I will never forget listening to how happy they were once their project was complete and they could step into their new environment.

I heard back then how good architecture design made a difference in people’s lives and for the community as a whole. That’s when my mind was made up to start my journey as an architect.

Today, Merchant Architecture is a full-service commercial and residential Architectural firm in Calgary that provides professional, creative, innovative and sustainable design solutions.

Throughout my professional career of more than 15 years, I have personal experience working on a wide range of projects ranging from a single family & multi-family residence, commercial buildings, medical, industrial, schools, performing arts center, hotels/resorts project and a hockey rink.
