Dates of existence



Archibald Campbell Hope was born in Bradford, England in 1872, the son of a prominent local architect, Thomas Campbell Hope.

A.C. Hope apprenticed to his father in 1888 and became a partner in the firm in 1901. In 1906 he set up a practice in San Francisco; after two years he moved on to Vancouver, where he set up a partnership with John S. Pearce. The firm designed a number of school in the city, and Hope became the School Board's consulting architect. During World War I, Hope worked for the Department of Munitions in Toronto, returning to Vancouver in 1918. The remainder of his career took place in Greater Vancouver, where he designed public buildings and homes for a number of prominent businessman and was the building inspector for the Municipality of Point Grey, working in Kerrisdale in the 1920s.
