is an award-winning architecture studio grounded in a commitment to innovation in design and built on a free and expansive approach to architectural practice and thought. With projects ranging from private homes to major civic infrastructure, the Toronto-based studio is recognized internationally for creating spaces that are sculptural, experimental, and highly functional. Led by Alex Josephson, Pooya Baktash and Jonathan Friedman, the studio is known for its collaborative process and multidisciplinary approach, pushing boundaries of materiality and technology in their designs and integrating a nuanced sense of research, programming, and creative services into their process.
Craftsmanship, innovation, and sustainability are key to the PARTISANS ethos, and evident across all projects, including cutting-edge hospitality work (Bar Raval), private projects like their innovative sauna of curved wood, and work in the public sphere, including the revitalization of historic buildings in Toronto, to ambitious urban planning projects like the masterplan for Innisfil’s Orbit and social good initiatives like designing supportive housing for Toronto’s citizens in need.
