About SAI

SAI is an experienced Canadian architecture and interior design firm, recognized for our highly collaborative approach to award-winning design. For over forty years, we have focused on delivering elegant, sustainable solutions for technically complex projects.

DRIVEN BY DISCOVERY.

We are dedicated to discovering the unique aspects that will drive each project’s success. For us, this means listening to our clients to fully understand their challenges and their vision long before we ever begin to resolve a design. We draw on our depth of experience across many sectors to the benefit of every client and project, but over forty years of delivering projects, we have never resolved two buildings in the same way because no two clients have ever had identical needs.

DESIGN THAT RESPECTS.

Sometimes design means artistry, and sometimes it means craft. Understanding the right moment for each is what sets us apart. Our design solutions are driven by our respect for the client’s priorities and the project’s needs, rather than a notion of what the design should be. Our approach respects budget and schedule as well as form and function, and layers in an inherent sense of stewardship for the environment and the community around us. But Respect isn’t just our ethos for design; it’s our culture.

We listen before we create. We think before we draw. We thrive on challenges.
