Partner Steven Casey joined KPMB Architects in 2002 and has since contributed to many of the studio’s projects across the sectors of culture, education, workplace, and architectural interiors. He is committed to design excellence and a collaborative project management and delivery approach.
Steven’s diverse experience includes the dynamic Centennial College Applied Research and Innovation Centre, as well as the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, a cultural landmark. He has led many of KPMB’s interior architecture projects including Maple Leaf Lounge at Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, Torys LLP’s offices in Toronto, Calgary, Halifax, and Montreal, and executive offices for CTV.
His commitment to excellence and quality in all aspects of architectural design and construction is showcased in the award-winning Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) Campus in Waterloo, which received an American Institute of Architects (AIA) Honor Award, a Royal Institute of British Architects International (RIBA) International Award, and a Governor General’s Medal.
In 2013, Steven’s focus shifted to projects in the United States, including the Ronald O. Perelman Center for Political Science and Economics at the University of Pennsylvania (LEED GOLD) and NY Hudson Yards in New York. He recently completed the new workplace strategy and interior for the headquarters of Scotiabank at the Bay Adelaide Centre.
In parallel to the project work, Steven is advancing the practice through his involvement with the Marketing and Business Development teams. He oversees the firm’s strategies for corporate communications and brand awareness, as well as the market research, planning and growth initiatives that create mutually prosperous partnerships across Canada and the United States.
He is an advocate for collaborative design both within the practice and with clients, consultants, and all stakeholders to bring each project’s vision to fruition. Outside of KPMB Steven is supportive of Toronto’s arts community through his patronage at local institutions and he sits on the development committee for the St-Lawrence Neighbourhood Association.
