David Gallaugher

Solterre Design, Architect

David studied fine art and exhibited his sculpture and installation work in Toronto before pursuing his long interest in building and architecture at Dalhousie University. Having moved to Halifax and fallen in love with the east coast he now brings his artistic, design and technical sensibilities to Solterre. His strong experience in construction and wood craft, coupled with Solterre's continuing leadership in building reuse and materials research have allowed him to put his hands-on design approach to good use. An interest in conservation and carbon emissions have lead to an expertise in integrated building systems and super-efficient building design. David had designed over a dozen homes to the German Passive House energy standard and designed the first Passive House Certified office building in Canada.
