KPMB Architects


If you think KPMB Architects’s name is a mouthful, try reciting their list of local accomplishments: the Gardiner Museum, Roy Thomson Hall Enhancement, National Ballet School’s Jarvis Street campus and the Young Centre for the Performing Arts in the Distillery are just some. A bigwig in the city’s current cultural renaissance, KPMB Architects has a knack for integrating their designs into the existing landscape in an unobtrusive yet vibrant way. The 21-year-old firm specializes in large public spaces and institutions, and a number of projects across the city are in the works, including the ultra-glam 46-storey Bell Lightbox theatre complex for the Toronto International Film Festival Group at King and John, finished in 2010.

In the 2024 Spring/Summer Issue of Designlines, we focus on New Builds and “celebrate the profound impact of creating something new, not just as an architectural endeavour but as a testament to laying down roots and shaping the very essence of our city’s identity,” editor-in-chief Joseph Cicerone writes.
