WHO WE ARE
Jost + Architects provides architectural design and project services across Nova Scotia. The firm was established in Annapolis Royal in 1977 as Jost Architects Ltd, and operated under the direction of Harry Jost who has practiced in Nova Scotia for over 40 years. In July 2019, Heather Sprague purchased the firm to continue the tradition of quality service alongside Harry who continues as a valuable senior member of the staff. Heather has 15 years of experience practicing in both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Harry and Heather are supported by several other staff members including an architectural designer, a senior technologist, a junior technologist and administrative personnel - of whom two are LEED® accredited. We have been exploring both Passive House and Net Zero strategies as we look forward to the future of responsible building. Our experienced staff will bring knowledge and experience to your project.
PUTTING THE PIECES TOGETHER
We believe that design is like piecing together a puzzle. Our role as architects is to organize, sort and prioritize the functional and aesthetic pieces to produce a cohesive whole. Many people contribute pieces to the project - the client expects certain functions be met; building authorities demand that certain standards be met; nature demands that certain limits be set; society demands that certain responsibility be taken. A good architect harmonizes the various expectations of those involved resulting in an aesthetic, economical, and efficient building.
