- Collaborative & multi-cultural
Our identity perfectly illustrates our primary creative process: a collaborative approach that opens the way for the ideas, skills, and cultures of each and every member of the team. With more than 40 employees, our team encompasses members with Anglo- and Franco-Canadian roots, to staff with world-wide origins bringing a vast cultural range of talent to our collaborative.
Members are welcomed into a diverse workplace for the richness they bring to the process.
The firm refers to itself as an "architects collective" specifically to reflect this particular reality.
Both proudly creative and a passionate champion of technical detail, Figurr puts its heart into each of its architectural proposals and solutions. The architecture firm has an unquestionable passion for how it develops the work it creates.
Focused on making its clients—rather than itself—look good, Figurr imbues itself in its clients' philosophy and aspirations.
By taking the time to explore and draw from our clients’ very DNA, our team is truly able to create buildings and spaces that are an extension of Figurr's and our clients’ values.
- Richard Rubin
- Stephen Rotman
Richard Rubin and Stephen Rotman have been contributing their time and talent to architecture since the 1980s.
In 1989, they decided to join forces to create the architecture firm of Rubin & Rotman. They quickly discovered the exponential effect of collaboration.
Over the years, they were joined by new associates. A team and a philosophy came together. Skills diversified, know-how was passed on. While Rubin and Rotman are still here, the duo is but one part of a vast equation.
The creative spirit of the two Rs has
fostered the emergence of a whole larger
than the sum of its parts: the Figurr
With this new generation of qualified and talented leadership, the architecture firm is continuing to pursue the excellence that it has espoused since its inception in 1989, ensuring the sustainability of its business and vision.
