Myriam Tawadros


Myriam Tawadros joined KPMB Architects in 2002 after graduating from the University of Toronto, where she received both the RAIC Student Medal and the AIA Henry Adams Medal. Since then, she has significantly contributed to the firm’s success on a wide range of institutional, urban, hospitality, and residential projects. Her keen ability to deliver a client’s vision in the planning of a building through all phases of design and construction is evident in her varied portfolio, which showcases different scales and typologies.  

Her project work at the firm includes several award-winning projects, including the LEED Gold-certified Joseph L. Rotman School of Management Expansion at the University of Toronto and Canada’s National Ballet School — winners of Governor General’s Medals in Architecture; the Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson University) Master Plan, which won an AIA Honor Award for Regional and Urban Design; and Thornwood House, a BILD Award winner.   

Myriam also worked on SugarCube, a mixed-use development project that introduced a new strategy for making contemporary architecture within Denver’s lower downtown heritage district. Recently, she completed the development of the prestigious Park Hyatt Toronto hotel and private residences, a project that celebrates an iconic landmark in our city.   

She is currently leading a large team in the creation of a housing portfolio with Kindred Works, an organization re-imagining housing in Canada. Sustainable design and placemaking are at the heart of the Kindred Works portfolio, which will deliver beautiful and attainable rental housing across Canada for generations to come. 

With an aptitude for identifying how the unique skills, experiences, strengths, and interests of staff work together, she chairs the talent management committee at the office, helping to build diverse, robust project teams that deliver on design excellence. 

As a Montreal native, Myriam is fully bilingual in both French and English. She is also a proud mother of two children that keeps her multitasking skills razor sharp. When not in the office, Myriam guest lectures for the professional practice course at the University of Toronto and has most recently served as a juror for the DesignTO Awards.

“Sustainable design and placemaking are at the heart of great architecture. Now is the time to build for generations to come.”
