Bold in its architectural expression, Bianca is a nine-storey boutique mid-rise condominium featuring a contemporary, all-white façade and terraces that provide sweeping views of the neighbourhood. An artificial hillside is created by sloping the south side of the building that faces Dupont Street.

The design strategy focused on an idea of “organized collision”: fostering collaboration by artfully combining dynamic physical and visual interconnectivity with a variety of ideal work environments – from quiet spaces for private contemplation and mathematical calculations, to blackboard nooks in circulation space, comfortable dedicated interaction areas, and formal presentation rooms.

Teeple Architects – Practice Profile

As one of Canada’s top architectural firms, Teeple Architects is known for projects of exquisite spatial, material and textural composition. While the firm is well recognized for its iconic projects these evolve from the initial drive to provide practical solutions that respond to the client’s needs and aspirations. Innovation and creativity are complemented by exceptional service that encourages a participatory design approach and a commitment to the entire construction process. The result is buildings of true architectural excellence which are efficient to operate and well adapted for day-to-day inhabitation.

Teeple Architects engages in a dynamic design methodology that balances practical considerations with a strong conceptual foundation. It begins with the specific context of each project such as the nature and opportunities of the site, the climate, a deep understanding of the inhabitants, their activities and preferences as well as budget and schedule. Stephen Teeple: “It is the relationship between the constructed idea and its origins that we find to be the intellectually and emotionally engaging aspect of architecture. To experience architecture is to witness its unraveling, to see before oneself the exposure of the constructed idea and to understand the conditions for its presence”.

The firm believes in the value of a broad architectural practice and to this end, has completed work in all major architectural fields including commercial, institutional and residential applications. Numerous projects encompass public spaces including community and recreation centres, libraries, schools, university buildings and urban parks. Private projects include religious buildings, clinics, high-end residential homes and corporate interiors as well as condominium and town house projects. Overall, Teeple Architect’s body of work is conceived in critical relation to the language of modernism in an attempt to extend and further enrich its expressive force.

Teeple Architects has received five Governor General’s Awards, Canada’s top architectural recognition. These were for the Scarborough Chinese Baptist Church (Toronto, 2008), The Chemical Sciences Building (Trent University, 2008), the Addition to the Albert A. Thornbrough Building – College of Engineering & Physical Sciences (University of Guelph, 2002), the Burt C. Matthews Hall Addition (University of Waterloo, 1997) and the Trent University Childcare Centre (Trent University, 1994). The firm is regularly recognized by the Canadian design community with awards from the Ontario Association of Architects, the Design Exchange and various municipal governments.

Sustainable Expertise
As recipients of the Holcim Award for Sustainable Construction (2005 – Langara College Library, Vancouver, B.C), Teeple Architects demonstrates its willingness to rethink the art of architecture and the ecology of buildings. The firm believes that the ramifications of a sustainable approach to building reach well beyond the sphere of good practice to inform the conceptual essence of each work of architecture. As such, sustainable design is a challenge to rethink the art of architecture. Indeed, in the work of Teeple Architects, environmentally conscious design has become an integral consideration in the formulation of architectural ideas and in the spatial experience embodied in each completed project – virtually every new project is undertaken with the goal of achieving LEED certification.
