Safe Spaces, Healthy Residents, Flourishing Communities

Safe Spaces, Healthy Residents, Flourishing Communities


As builders and architects, we have the privilege of creating the homes and curating the communities where people will live their lives. This is why, when we design spaces that support physical, mental, and emotional well being, our businesses succeed, and our communities thrive. Without understanding the full impact that the physical surroundings have on the people who live there, our work can become very shortsighted.

As architects, designers, builders, and managers, we are vital in developing thriving communities.

That’s why we created the Building To Thrive™ Training. In this four-part training

When you create safer spaces, it's proven that:

  • You can expect reduced maintenance costs, fewer evictions, and invested tenants
  • Crime and abuse decrease.
  • You’ll inspire confidence in financial partners and investors.

Finally, and most importantly, you’ll establish an elevated, welcoming, and inclusive community of wholly supported individuals.

Norwood Medical Centre

Since we did a façade reno at our property, we have seen an improvement in safety around the building with less incidents occurring – we no longer have graffiti and loitering around the building has become less of a concern.

AVID responded with innovative and creative solutions, to the integral problems in the space to be retrofitted. The final project was a beautiful response to our desires for a bright, accessible and welcoming library.

Meet Cynthia, the Heart Behind AVID


Cynthia Dovell is an award-winning architect, chair of the Alberta Chapter of the RAIC, and founder of AVID Architecture. She experienced the difference that a safe living environment can make in your life when she attended the University of Toronto. After a childhood full of challenges and unstable living conditions, finally living in a safe space allowed Cynthia to reach her highest potential.

Cynthia founded AVID Architecture upon the belief that a space that supports physical safety and mental and emotional well-being can transform the lives of the people who live there. Her story is proof of the impact architecture can have.

At AVID Architecture, we believe that, together, our industry can transform the communities we live in and build spaces that create joy.
