Joe Muego Architect AIBC, AAA, SAA, MRAIC
Principal Architect


Joe Muego is a registered architect in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan.  He holds a BA in western architectural history and earned his Master's degree in architecture from UBC in 1999, with special recognition for his achievement in Building Structures, and since then has dedicated his career to residential and commercial architecture.  Over that time Joe has focused on the development of all areas of practice, including project delivery, site services, and firm promotion and management.  Joe was also a partner with Kallweit Graham Architecture for 4 years before founding Hearth, with then partner, Wendy Andrews Architect AIBC.

On the project level, Joe has amassed broad experience through in depth involvement in many projects throughout Greater Vancouver and through the prairies in his capacity as a senior architect and project administrator, and he is as comfortable behind the drafting table as he is on the construction site.

In addition to his architectural achievements and because of his specific interest in the "hands-on", Joe was formerly a part owner and general manager for a design-build construction company completing 4 million dollars of residential construction.


Joe is also active in municipal planning committees (e.g., Tsawwassen Area Plan Committee, Delta Zoning Advisory Group etc.).  Joe currently sits on the Delta Advisory Design Panel.

Outside of the municipal sphere.  Joe has also served as president for various organizations including PAC chair at Beach Grove Elementary and is currently the Vice-chair of Delta DPAC.

Joe is an active professional mentor with the AIBC.

Joe is a proud resident of Beach Grove, Tsawwassen, with his family.
