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 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."
“Students love the new Centre. It’s wonderful seeing the halls and new classrooms filled with students studying, building friendships, and enjoying their down time in the lounge while participating in events.” - James Aldridge, Lakehead’s Vice-Provost, International Centre
“After years of great work together, I wanted to extend my thanks to you, the Bortolotto team, on the creation of Student Central.

Thanks for everything and hopefully we have the chance to work together again sometime in the future!’ – Andrea Tarsitano, Lakehead 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

"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, McGregor Community Centre
