Diamond Schmitt is a global architecture firm that designs transformative and highly sustainable buildings. Delivering innovative architecture that empowers people, communities, and organizations to harness change for the greater public good, Diamond Schmitt employs a collaborative research process focused on exceptional performance and meticulous craftsmanship.

With offices in Toronto, Vancouver, and New York, the firm has designed industry-leading spaces for research and education, including McGill University’s Life Sciences Complex, the University of British Columbia’s BioSciences Complex, and the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning at the Hospital for Sick Children—all known for their excellent laboratories, versatile planning, and striking design. The firm has also completed the design of New Vic—the new home of Sustainability Systems and Public Policy programs at McGill University.

Notable civic projects by Diamond Schmitt include Lincoln Center’s new David Geffen Hall in New York, Regent Park Community’s Daniels Spectrum Arts Centre, the Senate of Canada Building and the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, along with current work on the Art Gallery of Ontario’s new Dani Reiss Modern and Contemporary Gallery and the New Brunswick Museum.
