“After years of great work together, I wanted to extend my thanks to you, the Bortolotto team, on the creation of Student Central. We are open and students have nothing but great things to say about the new space. Thanks for everything and hopefully we have the chance to work together again sometime in the future!’ – Andrea Tarsitano, Lakehead University

“Bortolotto has successfully demonstrated a strong ability to provide innovative and creative concepts, functional design and full professional architectural services. They have delivered their design projects on schedule, despite tight time frames, worked within tight budgets, and consistently kept the value of change orders to a minimum during construction.” – Facilities Manager, OCAD University

"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


Bortolotto is a Toronto architecture and interior design firm that was established by Tania Bortolotto in 1999. The firm believes that architecture matters and that it has an enormous impact on society’s quality of life. Bortolotto specializes in institutional and commercial custom contemporary designs.

“Our goal is to uplift the individual we serve; to succeed, and to soar in the spaces we design and the process along the way.”

The firm believes it is their responsibility as architects to create a built environment with awareness and consideration of the health and well-being of every human and community in mind. Their design process begins by listening and understanding to the needs and aspirations of the client. The designs are crafted from four pillars of excellence. They show artistry, connect people and enhance health and wellness. We commit to serve our clients, earn their trust and demonstrate transparency.

Bortolotto is recognized regionally and nationally and is the recipient of numerous design distinctions and awards. The work has been featured in World Architecture News, Canadian Architect, Azure Magazine and The Globe and Mail. Bortolotto was recently named by Blog TO as one of the “Top 15 Architects in Toronto."
