Background

Grounded on an in-depth knowledge of the British Columbia and Vancouver Island construction and design industry, Studio 531 Architects Inc. (formerly; Moore Wilson Architects Inc.) was formed by Tom Moore to build on his, over 25 years as owner, principal and architect with some Vancouver Islands largest architectural firms.

Tom has rebranded Moore Wilson to Studio 531 to reflect the growth of the firm, the spirit of collaborative design and the diversity of work being designed in the studio. Studio 531 was conceived to advance the design intelligence of current contemporary needs; to build a talented professional team in a stimulating and interactive environment; and bring accumulated collective experience and knowledge to inspire current and future projects where we can add value and support clients in achieving their goals. With extensive experience in planning, transportation, healthcare, commercial, mixed-use , and heritage projects, Studio 531 is leading numerous complex projects which will positively impacted the livability of many communities on Vancouver Island, while helping to create a unique sense of place.

Located in Victoria’s Chinatown Studio 531 has been established to offer a project team framework, design solutions, and technical competency to meet our client needs.
