Dates of existence



Robert Twizell was born at Newcastle-on-Tyne, England. He studied with the Newcastle architectural firm of Hicks and Charleswood and became an associate of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1900. He came to Vancouver around 1907 and established the firm of Twizell and Twizell, with his brother George S. Twizell. The firm designed a number of schools and houses but was principally noted for its church projects, notably Canadian Memorial Church and St. Andrew's Wesley. Twizell was a charter member of the Architectural Institute of British Columbia and president of the Art, Historical and Scientific Association of Vancouver from 1918 to 1922.
