We are honoured to be listed at the top of NOW Magazine’s 10 Best Events at DesignTO happening January 18-27. Our installation ‘ReflectLive’ at Delisle-St. Clair Parkette explores our relationship with urban forests as manicured spaces offering relief from city life, as well as places we can regain a sense of adventure and playfulness. Congratulations to the project team: Alexandra Lavallée, Andre D’Elia, Candice Gouveia, Erica Govan, Janean Bruhn, Mo Sooror, Quan Thai and Tristan Roberton. More information about the installation and the team’s process can be found here.

We are honoured to have two of our projects profiled in the recently published book Canadian Contemporary: The Northern Home. Representing the diversity of superkül’s single-family residential portfolio, multiple-award-winning Compass House and Valley House respond to their specific environments of country and city in a subtle and considered fashion while meeting the unique needs of their inhabitants. A foreword by Avi Friedman provides a unifying perspective with respect to variations in climate and landscape across this vast country, while acknowledging issues of sustainability and material innovation that are addressed in the featured homes.
This summer, we celebrated our one-year anniversary since we moved into our new location at 35 Golden Avenue! Thank you Harluu for keeping us kül 😉
A reminder that our offices will be closed on Monday September 3rd, due to the Labour Day holiday. We will be back in action on Tuesday September 4th. Enjoy the long weekend!
David LeBlanc describes our Proper TV project as a landmark for the Dovercourt Village neighbourhood in The Globe & Mail’s Real Estate section.
