About SVN Architects + Planners
SvN Architects + Planners is a studio based in Downtown Toronto that has intentionally assembled a preeminent team of over 100 planners, urban designers, landscape architects and architects to develop design solutions for the critical urban issues of our time.
SvN was formed in 2015 through the amalgamation of the work (and brands) of planningAlliance and regionalArchitects, assuring continuity of an ‘integrated’ planning and design practice founded in 1978. Since its inception, SvN’s primary foci have remained policy and design oriented around the primary issues facing our rapidly changing urban and regional environments- in our present-day milieu, our work is uniquely focused on housing and mobility.
SvN offers comprehensive planning, approvals and development management to governments, landowners, transit authorities and non-governmental organizations. We work in towns, cities and regions experiencing rapid growth, transitioning social structures and changing economies, at home and internationally.
Our storied experience working from the gathering of constraint information and formation of vision, to the formation of concept, development of “framework” (policy or design), through to construction, allows us to provide a unique suite of services, from visioning to contract administration. We work at nearly every scale and from project conception through completion, and anticipating at all stages the challenges that come with complex projects development.
We take an integrated approach to urban design, landscape, architecture, and planning that is rigorous, creative, and comprehensive. We deliver work that results in pragmatic and forward-thinking community design with a goal to reset the relationship between buildings, landscape, community and infrastructure.
Compensation and Benefits
SvN offers a competitive salary, full health benefits, a generous professional development allowance and a group retirement savings plan with a matching component. Our bright, airy suite of offices is at 110 Adelaide Street East, near the St. Lawrence market in downtown Toronto, although working from home would be required at this point.
