About SvN Architects + Planners
SvN is one of Canada’s premier integrated design firms with a multidisciplinary team of architects, planners, urban designers and landscape architects engaged with the dynamic social, economic and environmental forces that define and govern where we live and work.
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 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 services 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 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. We work at nearly every scale and from project conception through completion, anticipating at all stages the challenges that come with complex development.
We take an integrated approach to design that is not limited to managing a good, policy-oriented process, but one that is rigorous, creative, respectful and comprehensive. We deliver work that results in pragmatic and forward-thinking community solutions with a goal to re-set the relationship between buildings, landscape and infrastructure.
Some of our most significant contributions to the fabric of the GTHA include the Reconfiguration of the Six Points Interchange, Shoppers World Brampton Master Plan, Eglinton Connects Planning + Urban Design Study, the Dundas Connects Land Use and Transportation Master Plan and the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre Urban Design Guidelines.
