The Designer

Joe Rommel

AScT, CRD, Dipl T

Having designed houses on the North Shore of Vancouver, BC for the last 30 years, Joe is a registered building designer with the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC (ASTTBC)


Joe was born in Baden-Baden and grew up in Gaggenau, near the northern edge of Germany's Black Forest. He moved to the West Coast of British Columbia when he was a teenager.
He graduated with a Diploma in Building Technology from the British Columbia Institute of Technology in 1982 and took part in the early design of Yaletown, an old warehouse area in Vancouver that transformed into a popular district for offices, residences, and restaurants.
During the local economic recession in 1985, Joe spent four years refining his design skills with firms in Giessen, Germany, and under the mentorship of Prof. Karl Dittert at the Innova Design Center in Houston, Texas.
He traveled extensively to places like the Middle East, Japan, China, Europe, and the USA. From landmarks like Athens' Parthenon to New York's Twin Towers, he studied various architectural styles and cultures. After returning to British Columbia, Joe founded Rommel Design, now one of Vancouver's most sought-after firms for designing single-family residences. He has completed numerous projects of varying sizes.
