About RWA

Our portfolio includes a wide range of project types with a variety of client groups.  We have longstanding, successful relationships with a variety of private developers, working together to produce new residential, mixed use, community and institutional prototypes.  Our commitment to care and innovation extends to our urban design, working with planning staff to create master plans and design guidelines.


We incorporate traditional and emerging technology and tools in our practice.  Our ability to produce illustrations that communicate the design intent throughout the process is an important asset.


We believe that a successful design practice requires rapid turnaround time, adherence to schedules and creativity within strict financial proformas.  Responding to client and user groups, understanding individual needs and desires and working with regulatory authorities to facilitate the approvals procedures is fundamental to us. Our clients include industry leaders who value our creative talents as well as our attention to detail.  We have had the opportunity to work in Asia and the USA.


We are a team of experienced and dedicated individuals.  Many of our staff has been with the firm since its inception.  These experienced professionals are involved from initial stages of design through to completion.  This process is a fundamental strength of our firm and continues to evolve as our firm grows into the future.

“We acknowledge that our workspace resides on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
We thank them for their care of the rich resources and cultural teachings of this beautiful land and look forward to working with them in partnership as we continue to build great communities together.”

Bob Worden and Doug Ramsay established Ramsay Worden Architects in 1989, practicing architecture and urban planning with care and imagination. The firm has developed a reputation for innovative design focused on producing livable buildings with a human scale that respects the patterns and character of the community.

In 2018 Bruce Ramsay, Allan Seppanen, and Stanley Hsu joined the partnership to create RWA Group Architects, expanding the firms’ capacity for growth.

We are committed to sustainable, livable, innovative buildings with a human scale that respect the patterns and character of the community. We continue to expand our skills and expertise on all levels, translating this knowledge to our projects.
