KPMB Architects is an internationally renowned Canadian design firm located in one of the most diverse cities in the world, Toronto.  Toronto, the ‘City of Jane Jacobs’ and great neighborhoods, is in the DNA of every KPMB project, both in a physical and cultural sense. Our designs prioritize the quality of the human experience through the creation of vibrant communities and sustainable cities and places. An overriding theme of the practice has been placing contemporary architecture in an evolving dynamic relationship with what exists to support the vitality of the urban condition and contribute to cultivating an open, civil and pluralistic society. The work is characterized as a hybrid form of architecture oscillating between regional and local identity and global influence; time past and present and future.

Our approach is collaborative and based on integrated design thinking and processes. Our services are inclusive of architecture, interior design, master planning, workplace strategy, and enriched by our interdisciplinary research forum, the KPMB Lab. This has resulted in a very diverse portfolio of work, which reinforces our commitment to building a culture of diversity and inclusion. Since 2000, KPMB has designed and delivered on over 27 million s.f. of projects across North Amer­ica and across sectors of business, culture, education, mixed-use residential and office developments, government, healthcare, and hospitality.

Established in 1987, KPMB’s work has been continuously recognized for architectural excellence and has received over 300 awards, including 16 Governor General’s Medals, Canada’s highest honour. The founding partners, Bruce KuwabaraMarianne McKenna, and Shirley Blumberg are each recipients of the Order of Canada for their contribution to Canadian culture and society.
