It is our mission to design innovative environments that foster sustainability, functionality, and develop positive growth in their surrounding communities.
MQN is located in Vernon, BC and is comprised of two companies – MQN Architects and MQN Interiors. MQN Architects was founded in 1987 under Robert McDonell and is currently directed by two partners and registered architects; Brian Quiring and Vicki Topping. MQN Interiors is directed by both Brian and Vicki in addition to Dora Anderson, registered interior designer.
Our firm offers a complete range of architectural and interior design services from: feasibility studies, capital planning, project identification reports, development consulting, LEED consulting, documentation, and the management of complex construction projects.
Our goal continues to be the development and maintenance of a diverse portfolio. Through this we have developed expertise in commercial, retail, education, recreation, health care, residential, civic, and religious sectors.
We have strong relationships with local consultants and contractors and form design teams that foster collaboration in delivering successful projects. Our involvement extends to field services during construction, where the design intent, schedule, and budget are vigilantly monitored.
The key to our success is placing the people who use and exist in the environments we create at the heart of our practice and design. The buildings and spaces we develop are a direct reflection of the collaboration between our clients and the wealth of knowledge provided by our dynamic team.
