committed to design excellence and client satisfaction
Our dedicated team includes registered architects and accredited urban, interior design and LEED professionals. This team-oriented approach has resulted in the loyalty of many longstanding clients as well as over 70 design excellence awards.
We are a diverse, award-winning architecture and design studio recognized for some of the most widely appreciated community, civic, institutional and learning-based spaces in Canada.
We are urbanists known for the extent that we walk in the shoes of our clients. We design buildings from the inside out, bringing a strong collaborative approach to a rigorous and
imaginative exploration of the client’s needs, the building program, and the context of the site. Successful projects both embody and advance the vision of the people who imagine and inhabit them, and the awards that mean the most to us come from those who visit, live, learn and thrive in our designs.
It’s our mission to create places that people can embrace and make their own.
