Philippe Dibon


Growing up in the suburbs of Paris with a grandmother as an interior designer, Philippe Dibon learned the impact of architecture and urbanism on the social aspects of everyday life at a young age. His early experiences with architecture and design taught him that the act of building is intimately tied to the understanding of the land and its use. 
After completing his studies at École d’architecture de la ville & des territoires Paris-Est and Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands, Philippe worked in Paris on a broad range of building typologies, including residential and institutional projects. 
Since joining KPMB, Philippe has worked on notable renovation projects, such as the Global Centre for Pluralism in Ottawa and Robertson Hall at Princeton University, displaying exceptional technical ability, prowess in BIM coordination, and a keen sense of design and project management skills from pre-development phases to project completion. 
Philippe also has significant experience managing budgets for office and workplace projects. Other projects at the firm he has contributed to include the Upper York Water Reclamation Centre and a redevelopment project at 700 University.  
Currently he is the project architect for a financial institution’s workplace interiors and is part of the team realizing the Discovery Centre at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). One of Canada’s largest hybrid mass timber public buildings, the Discovery Centre is a state-of-the-art research facility that manifests CAMH’s commitment to investing in ambitious brain research and ending the stigma associated with mental health. 
Outside the office, he enjoys playing basketball and longboarding, which is his first choice for commuting to the office. 

“The essence of architecture relies on a profound understanding of the land and a devoted pursuit of a higher purpose.”
