Our Approach

Our design philosophy reflects the values of our Principals – pragmatic, innovative, collaborative and sustainable. All our designs evolve through a clear process that is based on a full understanding of each client’s philosophy and business plan. We come to the table with extensive research and valuable experience...but no preconceptions. Our teams commit maximum energy and resources to every project and provide value engineering until the program, design and budgetary requirements are met. We believe in a collaborative approach to design and encourage input from our clients throughout all stages of the project. Our technically complex projects require high levels of coordination between all stakeholders. When many parties are involved, we believe projects run smoother when the consulting team communicates in one voice to the client.

We are committed to delivering highperformance and sustainable buildings. Our teams create designs that contribute to human well-being and enhance the health of our planet, while also meeting immediate client needs and helping them achieve operational savings. We think globally and act locally. We believe buildings should be timeless, sensible and inspiring to both their inhabitants and surrounding communities. This is why we strive to understand the local cultures, construction methods and aesthetics in all the areas in which we work. The experience we gain in one part of the world can shape work we do across the globe. This integrated process allows us to bring the best of international practice to projects around the world.

Atrium Media Tower and Atrium on Bay Renewal Location Toronto, Canada Size 59m2 Status Completed in 1999 Client Brookfield Management Ltd. and The Ellman Companies

This structure is Toronto’s first Media Tower and the first component of the much-anticipated revitalization of the Yonge and Dundas intersection, Canada’s busiest with 37 million pedestrians per year. Both a dramatic urban feature and media event, the Tower is Canada’s first large format structure able to accommodate multimedia presentations with a combination of neon, LED, 3-D and

motion signage. With the Tower’s top 232 feet above ground level, its high visibility along Yonge Street has made it an instant landmark. The structure is part of the overall renewal of The Atrium on Bay office/retail development for which B+H is also the Architect.
