Florian Jungen Architect is a fully licensed architecture studio based in Canmore, Alberta focusing on small to medium scaled residential and commercial projects. We offer professional and highly personalized design services with the knowledge and skill developed over two generations of designing and building in the Bow Valley and throughout Western Canada.
We live, work and play on the ancestral home of the Îyâxe Nakoda, who hold these mountains as sacred places. Before the establishment of arbitrary political boundaries, the Bow Valley region was also travelled by the Ktunaxa and the Maskwacis people. We commit to the work of reconciliation with all indigenous peoples and with the earth itself.
