Maureen Sanborn and Howard Heintzman are both graduates of the Faculty of Architecture, University of Toronto. For the past fifteen years their work has been focused on residential architecture and interior design. Both approach the process of design as a collaborative experience with the client so that each house is different, with the common denominator being the quality of the exterior construction and interior finishing.

Creative problem solving is essential to the practice, and each project is tailored to the client’s vision, with sound building practices, and a respect for neighbourhood character. Because of this, they have successfully completed many complex city projects requiring multiple levels of approvals at various city and provincial levels.

A core feature of the practice is the coordination of the interior design with the exterior architecture for a holistic and authentic package tailored to the client’s lifestyle. Working closely with the contractor, artisans and craftsmen, they are able to assist the client to ensure that the end built product satisfies the client’s vision for their home.

Their work has been featured in House and Home Magazine, Style at Home Magazine, Condo Life, The National Post, The Globe and Mail, The North Toronto Post, Canadian Builders Quarterly and various real estate publications. The firm is licenced by the Ontario Association of Architects.
