Shonda Wang, Sony Rai and Liana Bresler join founding Principals Drew Sinclair and John van Nostrand as Partners in the firm
SvN Architects + Planners is proud to announce the appointment of Shonda Wang, Sony Rai and Liana Bresler as new Partners of the firm. This new leadership reinforces SvN’s long-standing reputation as one of the only design firms in Canada to provide integrated architecture, urban planning and urban design under one roof.
“As leaders in housing and mobility, all of this design intelligence comes into play,” says Drew Sinclair, one of SvN’s founding partners. “SvN works on difficult city building projects where there are no ready-made design solutions. With this new leadership we are recognizing the people who are leading the design of our region’s most complicated sites.”
Working in almost all major transit corridors of Toronto and the GTA, SvN has a unique understanding of both the private market and public interests. SvN’s advice is in high demand due to the firm’s unique ability to navigate and stitch together city building investments with market realities. Their portfolio of work demonstrates the crucial ties between architecture, urban planning and urban design across Toronto and the GTA.
Notable transformative projects include the award-winning Six Points Interchange in Etobicoke, Dundas Connects and Hurontario LRT in Mississauga, Eglinton Connects, Toronto Port Lands Acceleration Initiative, Toronto’s Pan Am Athlete’s Village, and various multi-unit residential projects in both urban and suburban locations.
