Jost + Architects (formerly Jost Architects Ltd.) was founded in Annapolis Royal in 1977 by Harry Jost. After several years abroad, Harry chose to settle into a rural lifestyle in his home province of Nova Scotia. He founded Jost Architects Ltd. and has been an advocate of architecture in rural Nova Scotia ever since.
Heather Sprague began her architectural career in 2005, achieving certification in 2010. Heather practiced in her home province of New Brunswick for nine years before relocating to Nova Scotia. She joined Jost + Architects in 2016 and acquired the firm in 2019. Her intent is to perpetuate the tradition of quality service alongside Harry, who continues as a valuable senior member of the staff. Like Harry, Heather considers it a privilege to settle into a maritime rural lifestyle similar to the one in which she was raised.
Heather and Harry are supported by several other staff members including one architectural designer, two technicians, and an administrative assistant. Most members of the Jost+ staff can lay claim to having been raised in the Maritimes with a deep appreciation of the local land and lifestyle.
