“There’s a new beauty in working to minimize our clients’ footprints and to make our buildings more equitable and inclusive.”

Kevin has contributed to the design and development of many of the studio’s most recognized projects in Canada and the United States. In his nearly 25-year career with KPMB, Kevin brings a depth and diversity of design experience, leading multidisciplinary teams of architects and specialists in a collaborative process to realize award-winning designs. Recognized for his talent and versatility as a designer, his portfolio crosses all typologies and sectors; inclusive of academic, adaptive reuse, civic, corporate, cultural, hospitality, master planning, residential, and workplace strategy. Notable projects include the Governor General’s award-winning James Stewart Centre for Mathematics at McMaster University, Vaughan City Hall (LEED Gold), and the Data Sciences Centre at Boston University, recently selected as a Jury Winner of the Architizer A+ Awards.

Kevin co-directed the design of KPMB’s new Toronto office, which was featured in Interior Design in June 2019. His work on the long-term master plan, feasibility studies, and strategic transformation of Lloyd Hall, Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity’s premier alpine woodland hotel accommodation, has enhanced the appeal of this signature destination for artists and cultural leaders. Building on the success of Lloyd Hall, he is now leading the phased renovation and expansion of Banff Centre’s Performing Arts and Learning Complex. Kevin spearheaded the development of the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Political Science and Economics at the University of Pennsylvania (LEED Gold), the reimagination of Toronto’s Park Hyatt Hotel for Oxford Properties, and the Soap Factory, an adaptive reuse and expansion of the former Unilever Soap factory in Toronto’s East Harbour for First Gulf (LEED Platinum target).

Kevin is currently Design Partner for a new 520-acre redevelopment in north Toronto, in collaboration with Henning Larsen Architects, and SLA. In the Downsview Vision and Framework Plan, the built and the grown will be intertwined, working together to create a unique form of urban development that honours the site’s unique natural geography and deep history. It will set a new standard for healthy, inclusive urban life, with the values of sustainability and resilience woven into its fabric.
