The multi-disciplinary firm of Cohos Evamy, which has offices in Toronto, Calgary and Edmonton, is merging with the Vancouver-based architecture firm of Hotson Bakker Boniface Haden Architects (HBBH). The merger is set to take place on January 28.
Hotson Bakker first became well known for its innovative mixed-use urban designs such as Vancouver’s Granville Island, which was first redeveloped from its industrial site in the 1970s and is now a popular tourist and local destination with marina, market, artisan shops and the Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
Cohos Evamy is currently designing high profile projects such as the Royal Alberta Museum in Edmonton and the Calgary International Airport expansion. Cohos Evamy is also designing the Bay-Adelaide East office tower in Toronto.
“HBBH is an outstanding firm,” said Tom Sutherland, managing principal of Cohos Evamy. “We are delighted to be joining forces with an organization that shares our commitment to excellence. With their urban design focus, HBBH will provide an important contribution to an integrated practice model that is designed to address the complexities of dynamic sustainable environments, whether at the scale of individual buildings or entire communities.”
