Biographical history

Architect Paul B. Ohannesian worked in Vancouver as of 1972. He served as staff architect in several firms until 1986, when he established his own, specializing in residential housing. In 1987 he was hired as a consultant on the City's RS-1 Regulations Review. His role was to examine the implications of proposed new-house single family residential zoning regulations upon renovations/additions to existing single family housing stock.
