RAW design is an award winning architectural studio located in downtown Toronto with experience in a wide range of building types including high and mid-rise multi-residential, mixed use, commercial and historic restoration.

RAW is one of Toronto’s most vibrant and respected architectural and design studios. Cited as the 2009 Ontario Best Emerging Practice we possess an international design sensibility and wisdom combined with a wealth of recent local experience. The RAW portfolio includes the successful completion of many significant and landmark structures and our ongoing work includes many buildings set to become benchmarks for design excellence. Based in Toronto, our partners in Abu Dhabi, Delhi & Mumbai expand our reach into Asia & the Middle East.

At RAW, design excellence & creativity are not expensive options - they are fundamental to realising a building within the constraints of budget and schedule. At RAW, design excellence & creativity are not added value, they are primary values.


In progress (currently finishing interior demolition):

14 Erb Street West in downtown Waterloo is being transformed from a former police station (and originally a bank) into Communitech's new data hub. Over 19,000 square feet of now open-concept workspace and meeting areas will incorporate original steel vault doors, rustic original brick walls, and refinished oak wainscoting, millwork and flooring. The stone lions that flanked the 1880's entry will also be reintroduced.
