We subscribe to a team approach to building and believe that the confluence of architecture, structure, mechanical systems and building technology must meet at the commencement of the design process.

About Altius

The three founding partners of this young firm met while still attending architectural school in the 90's and agreed there were no established firms that embraced architectural practice as they envisioned it. In 1998, Altius Design Studio was launched. A young, idealistic firm created from a collective vision for an architectural practice which strives to reestablish the tradition of the architect as the central figure in the process of building, the idea of the Master Builder. Altius believes that, without this level of involvement, it would be an insurmountable challenge to create buildings that are sustainable, livable, contextual, economical and beautiful.

Today, Altius Architecture Inc. is a Toronto based multidisciplinary design firm, licenced by the Ontario Association of Architects, with a focus on the broader residential market. Clean contemporary design, emphasizing craftsmanship and materiality, has resulted in a number of award winning and critically acclaimed projects. Altius' custom residential and cottage projects are known for their sensitivity to site, thoughtful interiors and innovative sustainable design.

Close attention to detail and a client-driven design ethos produces intimate single family projects that are as unique as their owners and brings a distinct quality to Altius' larger multi-unit residential and commercial projects. Altius creates great architecture because they understand their clients and are responsive to what is most important to them.
