We are a full-service architecture firm and work closely with clients through each stage of a project.

SERVICES

feasibility

Before starting to design, we analyze and evaluate the physical, financial and planning parameters of the project and its context. This helps our clients to identify opportunities and challenges of specific sites and programs.

programming

Working with our clients, we review and analyze project requirements and goals. We then develop strategies to realize these goals within the project restraints.

design

We focus our creativity on designing spaces that are socially, culturally and environmentally responsive to project sites, programs, and budgets.

We are experienced in working with municipal authorities to identify and secure the best opportunities for our clients. With our extensive knowledge of civic policies and by-laws, we are able to guide projects efficiently through the permit process.

We are known for our diverse practice designing urban environments, buildings, and social spaces.

As architects, we identify concerns and design solutions. We find that this process is as much about communication as it is about design.
