Arminé joined KPMB Architects in 2009, having previously worked for an international non-profit organization working to build vibrant and inclusive democracies. Combining her passion for creating a positive impact with her systems-thinking approach and exceptional project management skills, Arminé collaborates with project teams to shape and support the delivery of the meaningful and paradigm-shifting projects that define the firm’s portfolio.
She coordinates with construction managers and consultants to ensure KPMB’s processes and protocols are communicated and implemented to preserve design intent and align with the client’s goals. She has applied this rigorous approach to the construction phase for such projects as the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, the Global Centre for Pluralism in Ottawa, The Brearley School in Manhattan, the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and the Center for Computing & Data Sciences at Boston University.
Analytical, detail-oriented, and organized, Arminé is keen to innovate in ways that improve productivity and efficiency. Currently, she is working on the interiors for the Scotiabank North Tower at Bay Adelaide Centre in Toronto, and the University of Toronto’s Landmark project. Arminé, whose commitment to creating change extends into her volunteerism, sits on the advisory committee for the Canadian Women’s Foundation’s Girls’ Fund.
