Welcome to our Toronto studio

Located in the heart of one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities, we’re an interdisciplinary studio of forward-thinking individuals. We believe in the power of design to transform people’s lives by transforming the places in which they live, learn, work, and play. We take pride in shaping communities at every scale. Our studio reflects who we are: diverse, creative, and curious. It’s an active “laboratory” that fuels experimentation and research, a forum for discussions with our clients and community, and a gallery showcasing our work and our people.

“We designed our studio to tell a story and promote a culture — do great work and have fun doing it!”

—Andrew Frontini, Design Director

Space for Community and Culture

Our studio is a welcoming place for the broader design community. 50% of our studio is dedicated to space for community and culture. From symposiums to social events, we reach beyond our walls to learn, teach, and inspire. This includes our weekly studio social hour, conferences on sustainability, and panel discussions.

Fun Fact
Our diverse community of designers hail from 32 different countries, with 16 languages spoken.
Commitment to Design Excellence

We hold bi-weekly internal project design discussions to provide an open forum in which questions can be answered, assumptions clarified, and advice sought. This feedback optimizes the design of each and every project.

Year after year, our studio is proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s Greenest Employers ―demonstrating our commitment to environmental leadership, well-being, and a socially engaged workplace culture.
