KPMB Architects is one of Canada’s leading architectural studios. Founded in 1987 as a hybrid studio model, KPMB offers an alternative to either the sole practitioner or the large corporate firm, merging individual creativity, collaborative team work and professional practice.

It has created a diverse portfolio of award-winning work for educational, cultural, healthcare, civic and corporate clients throughout North America and Europe and has earned over 180 awards for excellence.

Regardless of scale, every project of architecture by KPMB is conceived as a contextual response, to both site and a client’s vision. Eschewing consistency of style, the body of work is coherent in its ideas about making flexible, sustainable platforms to support and inspire creativity and innovation as well as to contribute to city and community building over the long term.
