About Us

GEC Architecture is focused on designing places that connect and inspire.

Since our earliest days, our founding partners shaped our philosophy and approach to work starting in 1966, setting a standard for design quality, urban integration and collaboration that each sequent generation of the partnership has embraced and strengthened. Our firm’s success has been shaped by great clients and collaborators resulting in a diverse portfolio of work that redefines how we Live, Learn, Play, Innovate, Gather and Connect.


We apply our design thinking through a studio culture that integrates diverse ideas and voices around a common goal. Our work evolves from first principles, rigorous research and problem solving.


We take the technical delivery and execution of our projects seriously. We approach our work with strict attention to detail, materiality and building science.


We find inspiration in the history and character of the communities in which we work. Seeking novel ways to deliver our designs and communicate the quality of our architecture.


We are client and project focused. Committed to the success of our client’s goals and aspirations, we seek strong, clear solutions to guide our design thinking.


We are problem solvers at every level of our organization. Our partners and senior leadership have decades of shared experiences working together on projects across Canada.

GEC Architecture has steadily grown through the completion of major sport and recreation, educational, transit and residential projects of diverse scale and character. In 2020, the firm opened a new Toronto studio to better serve our expanding work and clients across Canada.
