Garry Tomporowski, Architect, AIBC, has garnered over 30 years
of successful practice experience in Western Canada,
specifically in the Prairies, and British Columbia.

Since the inception of the original architect firm in 1956 as Allen Huggins Architects, TRTA Architecture has provided professional architectural services for a variety of projects throughout British Columbia and Alberta while maintaining a strong customer base in Vernon and the surrounding North Okanagan communities.  Our projects list includes residential, commercial, industrial, health care and community related facilities for a wide variety of clients.

In 2012, the Firm was purchased by Garry Tomporowski, Architect, AIBC, AAA, an industry leader and owner of GTA Architecture Ltd in Kelowna, B.C.  By accessing and utilizing the talent and design experts from both Firms, TRTA is able to give our clients the personal touch of a small architect office while at the same time giving  in-house access to resources and professional services most firms have to contract out.   We can effectively undertake projects that range in size from interior renovations and small additions to multi-million dollar construction.  

As leading designers, we believe that the consistency and success of our organization is reflected in the large number of repeat clients who tell us that the most significant attribute of our firm is that we are easy to get along with, and above all, listen to their ideas and provide very personal and individual service.  We place a high priority on internal and external communication and all design, administration and technologist team members are kept abreast of the project’s progress.  We encourage regular meetings with our clients knowing that this ensures an interactive and cohesive exchange of creative ideas.

At TRTA Architecture, we stay current by using the most up-to-date architectural and design software.  The latest laptops, tablets and smart phones enable us to view and make changes to your plans on the go and our full colour KIP printer enables us to have your plans available to you at a moment’s notice negating the need for outsourcing reproduction.

At TRTA we know that great architecture doesn’t have to be the most expensive part of your project.
We take pride in bringing our forward thinking designs, cost-effective projects and personal service to you time after time.
