Left Hand Architecture & Design Inc. is a full-service architecture and design studio that seeks to provide practical, creative solutions for Client design needs. Licensed to practice Architecture in the provinces of Saskatchewan, and Alberta, Canada, the practice is an extension of the beliefs and experiences of its founder Anthony Cameron, who spent time honing his craft in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Anthony’s specialty is multi-family housing, but he has also been involved in a variety of projects ranging from religious and civic institutions, to restaurants, to Developer driven projects.
Anthony brings unique perspectives and approaches to the practice of architecture. These perspectives and approaches are influenced by his unique Caribbean-Canadian upbringing, and travel experiences. Through the work of Left Hand Architecture & Design Inc., Anthony attempts to synthesize the concepts of Creativity, Culture, and Faith. These experiences and concepts translate into sensitivity to Clients’ needs and objectives.
The philosophy of Left Hand Architecture & Design Inc. is; “leave creative thinking in our hands”. The firm believes that “what a building looks like” is only one of the results of the creative process. Creativity is also used to solve the everyday challenges associated with bringing a building from conception to reality. Parameters such as budget should not compromise the quality of the product. This and other parameters are what force Left Hand Architecture & Design Inc. to find creative solutions that result in the delivery of a successful project.
My Story – Anthony Cameron
I am from a family that has emigrated across three continents. My parents moved from the Caribbean, to the United Kingdom (where I was born), then to North America where I grew up. When we arrived to North America, we lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and settled in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Being a visible minority in a new country and city presented challenges that played a tremendous role in my development during my childhood and adolescent years. Challenges such as racism and bullying, taught my brother, sister and myself how to look out for one another. Academics allowed us to express ourselves constructively. Athletics allowed us to physically purge whatever frustrations and tensions that we had in a structured environment, and at the same time learn about the importance of teamwork and camaraderie. Academics also served as a pathway to personal growth and the possibility of a better lifestyle in adulthood.
I have been fortunate in my life to have failed and succeeded. Failure has taught me to appreciate success when it happens and to be thankful for it. Architecture has given me the opportunity to express my thoughts, feelings, and experiences in a way that gives back to the greater good of society. Architecture is the medium that allows me to continue to express myself to the world. As athletics and academics once were, creativity is now the vessel that allows me to express what is in my soul. Enjoy my work.
