About Me

Vaughan is the founding principal of Vaughan Hoy Architecture, a multi-disciplinary design and project delivery practice.  Vaughan has 40 years experience in architecture and design, of which 28 has been in the design and management of projects.  His project work to date spans a wide scope of building types and project scales regionally, nationally and internationally, and includes medium to large scale innovative recreation retreats, commercial/public projects, large scale sophisticated urban interventions and civic projects, rural and urban design and masterplanning, airport and rapid transit projects, and town planning.

Vaughan’s strengths are in bringing vision to design, and developing unique and outstanding contemporary solutions to project opportunities at a wide range of scales, as well as being a ‘hands on’ project manager and project architect.  His involvement covers the entire process.

His practice’s philosophy is design centric where all professional service aspects emanate from the tree canopy of design, and that everything technical and delivery wise comes from that great umbrella to fulfill the client’s intent.

Vaughan’s practice focuses on engaging and energizing clients in the experience of the design process of their projects in creating timeless, enduring contemporary architecture that is of its time.

The practice’s current roster of project work encompasses masterplanning and facility design for special interest and cultural groups and includes recent work for Métis and Indigenous clients in Peavine and Maskwacis, Alberta, and for the YWCA new Higher Ground Wellness Hub & Campus in Canmore, Alberta.  Vaughan was instrumental in leading the design, development, stakeholder and public consultation, and successful approvals without appeal, for the Banff YWCA Courtyard project; a flag ship modular Net-Zero project; the first of its kind funded under CMHC’s Innovation Fund.

Vaughan was the Chair for the National Advisory Committee to Alberta Rural Development Network during development of the new Sustainable Housing Initiative’s (SHI) toolkit and guidelines for Affordable Housing projects. He has been a member of numerous civic, institutional, and not-for-profit boards and committees.

He is dedicated to positive and exemplary leadership of project and consultant teams, client service and relationships, and strives to bring and maintain a high motivational energy to the collective work of colleagues.
