Enhancing our communities

ABOUT US

As architects, designers, and planners, we champion people and apply design solutions that improve lives and create a deeper connection between people and place. With an insatiable curiosity for the world, we leverage our in-between thinking to make the invisible visible.

 

We operate globally from our offices across Canada and partner with our clients who are visionaries, passionate and courageous ― together we achieve results that make a difference to entire communities.

OUR APPROACH

In-between thinking

OUR APPROACH

In-between thinking

It feels different to work with us. Our design philosophy is based on listening, collaborating, and co-creating. We find inspiration from things others can’t see. This is what makes us truly Kasian. We leverage this way of thinking with clients, guiding organizations and developing the next generation of design leaders.

SUSTAINABILITY

Designing for infinite generations

SUSTAINABILITY

Designing for infinite generations

We shape spaces that nourish and restore people, creating stronger, more resilient communities for generations to come. This means we take our responsibility to protect the environment seriously. Our commitment is reflected by the ongoing growth of our sustainable design solutions. We regularly evaluate resilience and material performance to discover long-term economic, ecological, and social returns. We integrate sustainability into our approach for all new and existing buildings, interiors, renovations, and masterplans, and offer expertise in LEED, WELL, and Passive House projects. Together we can make a difference.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

We’re committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace

Embracing diversity supports our people, leads to innovation and better solutions for our clients. This is crucial to our integrity as a design and creative firm. We hire from all different backgrounds and experiences and we’re proud to celebrate representation from the following groups — visible minorities, Indigenous People, people with disabilities, LGBTQIA2S+ and over 55% of our team are women. We are engaging, learning and continuing the conversation with our people to ensure diversity remains a cornerstone of what makes us Kasian and that all people in the firm feel included.

BIM and Design Technology

Designing with information in mind

BIM and Design Technology

Designing with information in mind

From the get-go, we think about design holistically and collaboratively ― it’s part of our DNA. We were one of the first firms in Canada to adopt Building Information Modelling (BIM) into our production workflow and we haven’t looked back since. All our people are fully trained on the latest in BIM and design technology, including parametric design, design analysis, visualization, real-time work-sharing, project coordination and clash detection ― bringing value and efficiency to all our clients. We are regularly pushing the boundaries BIM has to offer through generative design, process automation, virtual reality and reality capture through laser scanning.
