about

Bortolotto is a design think tank architecture firm that strives to create innovative problem solving built environments that uplift the human experience. We plan for betterment, for positivity and for freshness. We uplift the entire process. We optimize how people connect to their environment, to nature and to each other and we design to inspire humanitas; human nature, civilization, and kindness. We forge bonds, create paths and build relationships for maximum project success.

Our primary driver is the belief that architecture has the power to uplift the human experience; that in order to build a flourishing community, we must start with the true, deeper needs of the people it will serve. Bortolotto places the human at the center of every design. Our goal is to uplift the individual we serve; to succeed, and to soar in the spaces we design and throughout the process along the way. We believe it is our responsibility as architects and designers, to create a built environment with awareness and consideration of the health and well-being of every human and community in mind. Our approach, driven by our 4 Pillars; wellness, wholeness, nature, and lightness have allowed us to create healthy, memorable, and inspiring spaces.

Bortolotto has enjoyed a string of accomplishments recently, most notably plans to re-imagine the Rosalie Sharp Pavilion at OCAD University located across from the AGO. In 2015, the firm took home the top prize at the ARIDO Awards of Excellence, a Best of Canada award and an OAA award for the Pit Stop transit facility for the Town of Oakville. The firm was also recently named by Blog TO’s as one of the “Top 15 architects in Toronto.” Bortolotto has enjoyed a string of accomplishments recently, most notably plans to re-imagine the Rosalie Sharp Pavilion at OCAD University located across from the AGO.

The Bortolotto team are inclusive, diverse, and friendly. We are always eager and happy to collaborate and take on new business relationships and partners. We believe in a work/life balance by maximizing efficiency and working smarter with focused attention during regular hours. This leaves more time with family and friends to enjoy life outside of work.

testimonials

"Her firm is a rare example in a roster of emerging Toronto practices that has loosened the iron grip on the Toronto market that large, established corporate firms have enjoyed for a long period of time. Modest budgets, simple material palettes, industrial design, defensible space, historic preservation as well as the experience of outdoor civic and interpretative spaces can be used to define future agendas of this young practice." Editor, Canadian Architect

"Not a week goes by and we don't think what a beautiful home we have. Such enduring beauty and function." 
Owner, Borden Street Residence

"I would like to congratulate you on your outstanding achievement of Award of Merit from ARIDO (the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario).  R.H. McGregor was my grandfather. I am sure he would be so proud of your design. I love that you chose the name 'The Commons' as that was where he spent most of his time being in Parliament. I personally am very proud of your work that bears my family name. My sincere thanks for a spectacular, fabulous design." Roxanne McGregor, The Commons
