Architect Gili Keselman, founder of Keselman Architects, Golden BC

Gili Keselman, Founder

Gili Keselman, a Technion Faculty of Architecture & Town Planning graduate, refined his skills under some of Israel's top architects, focusing on creating spaces that encourage community interaction and social well-being. His master's thesis, "From Object to Field," received the Leibnitz Award for its innovative idea of turning the Israeli parliament from a distant symbol of power into an engaging, open space for public interaction and democratic conversation.


In 2018, Gili embarked on a new chapter, moving from the dynamic Israeli architectural scene to the serene and inspiring landscapes of British Columbia. Driven by his love for mountain adventure and the allure of Canadian winters, he shifted from the fast-paced, high-pressure environment of Israel's top firms to a more thoughtful, personalized approach to design, nestled among the inspiring peaks of the Rockies. In this new setting, Gili focuses on building a direct, personal connection with his clients and weaving the peaceful beauty of the natural environment into his architectural designs. He aims to create calm, minimalistic spaces that promote well-being and foster connections.
