Quan is a licensed architect in Ontario and Quebec, who brings over six years of experience working on high-profile conceptual and built work across North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
Prior to joining SvN, Quan contributed to projects of varying scales from master plans, academic campuses, and large business & commercial complexes, to the interiors of luxury hotels, restaurants, and retail establishments. Most recently at Superkul, Quan was heavily involved in the design of Universal Music Canada’s new headquarters in the Liberty Village neighbourhood of Toronto. While practicing in Montreal, Quan acted as Project Manager at Atelier Barda, an acclaimed and emerging design studio, where he oversaw the design and construction of numerous small-scale residential and commercial projects. The studio focused on crafting narratives that combined traditional and contemporary design approaches, which resulted in detail-oriented and timeless projects.
Quan holds an Honours Bachelor of Architectural Studies from the University of Waterloo, and a Master of Architecture from McGill University. At the latter, his academic interests in the explorations of urban interventions within the public realm and their social impact on individual and collective engagement led him to conduct research in Europe as part of the Bruce Anderson Travel Award in Architecture. Quan is actively engaged as a volunteer in the community and has been a guest critic for design studios at McGill University.
