We are driven to truly understand and define the soul of a project, and never rest until we have found the ideal solution – one that allows the end-users of our buildings to naturally become a part of their new space while being liberated by it. Our principles promote the transformation of the human environment in a thoughtful way and we believe the key to that success is based on these key qualities:
We empower and enable you throughout our design process. It’s how we intimately extract the true essence and needs of a project.

University of Toronto Scarborough Campus, Chief Administrative Officer
The Canadian Canoe Museum defers to the landscape and the need to integrate with it, as opposed to standing out like a Bilbao. It’s not architecture as an object, but rather architecture linked to experience. The most significant thing beyond the integration in the landscape is the experience from within, and how the museum frames the view to the outside. It’s a very soft and generous approach to building.
Official Juror, Canadian Architect 2016 Awards of Excellence
We're living in a time of incredible consumption, and everything's about economics and everything's about cash flow, and I think Jonathan Kearns has an ability to stand away from that stuff and feel something that motivates him. He's motivated to do his work in a way that I think a lot of architects and a lot of designers aren't. What I'm saying is that he's got a depth of emotion and feeling, and it comes out.
