Carefully crafted architecture designed from profound understanding.
What we do:
Our architecture comes from relationships. It comes from understanding you, your inspirations, challenges, and everything that embodies your unique identity. We use this understanding to innovate profound designs and make valuable, carefully crafted architecture.
We work to take “sustainably designed” and “environmentally responsible” past “green”. We believe that being environmental demands consideration of you, your project, the site, the cultural context, and the well-being of the environments that our architecture creates and affects for both you and your neighbours. With this understanding, sustainability becomes about valuable design for today and for tomorrow. It is about architecture that improves your lifestyle, your business, your health, and your community. Because these elements evolve, we will work intimately with you to design sustainable, environmentally aware architecture that carefully reflects you and your core values.
As a builder of quality relationships, we are as committed to your experience working with us as we are to creating quality architecture. Trust us, this will be exciting.
About the Principal.
Trevor Wallace, OAA, M.Arch, B.Arch.S
After growing up in Toronto, Trevor went on to earn his Undergraduate and Master’s Degrees in architecture from Carleton University. During the course of his studies, Trevor supplemented his education through international architectural exposure that included studying in Spain. This experience provided an invaluable understanding of the connection between architectural spaces and the cultures responsible for their creation. In 2006, Trevor joined Quadrangle Architects where his work included the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada’s (RAIC) award-winning 130 Bloor Street West luxury condominiums, the NAIOP REX award-winning ‘Office Development of the Year’ 1919 Minnesota Court, project management for a high-profile financial institution as well as several commercial retail endeavors. In addition, Trevor worked to build a consortium with a major developer to strategize and re-think condominium design. In 2009 and 2010 he shared his passion and expertise as a guest critic for the University of Toronto’s second year Masters of Architecture program.
In early 2012 he completed his intern hours and passed his licensing exams receiving his professional accreditation with the Ontario Association of Architects. After a great six years Trevor left Quadrangle to start his own firm, Reflect Architecture.
Since its conception in 2013, his firm, Reflect Architecture, has completed over 30 projects in various sectors including commercial, commercial retail, institutional, and single family residential with many new projects in the design and construction phases. Some of the firm’s work to date has been published in medias such as Toronto Life and the Globe and Mail which featured the revitalization of Toronto’s old Global Village Backpackers into the new Brainstation facility + Quantum Coffee.
I spent a few years working with Trevor on our 130 Bloor Street West project while he was at Quadrangle Architects. Despite the complex nature of the project, Trevor consistently contributed design insight that was both innovative and contextually considerate. Additionally, his strong organizational and collaborative skills allowed for a positive and professional team experience. I look forward to working with him in the future.
