B+H Architects has bolstered its growing residential presence with the recent additions of Macquinn Victoria and Soheil Khosravi Kermani, two senior residential design experts with an extensive portfolio of work across Canada.
Victoria joins B+H’s Toronto studio as a senior associate, bringing with him more than 18 years of cross-sector experience including high and mid-rise residential, hospitality, retail, mixed-use, and office towers. At his previous firm, he collaborated on the design and delivery of several iconic residential developments in Toronto including No.55 Mercer Condos, 8 Wellesley Condos, INDX Condos, and Grid Condos, among many others. Victoria brings leadership in project delivery and technical expertise in the high-rise residential sector.
“I always strive to design and deliver not just residential buildings but spaces where people and communities can thrive,” said Victoria. “I’m extremely excited to join B+H, a team of experts who share the same goal and whose approach to design is grounded in solutions that are thoughtful and built around elevating the human experience.”
Kermani joins B+H’s Vancouver studio as a senior architect with more than 17 years of international experience in planning and design across a broad range of sectors and building typologies including mixed-use developments, residential towers, industrial complexes, and commercial buildings. Kermani’s experience extends to projects throughout British Columbia, including the 603,200 ft2 Whalley Gateway mixed-use development in Surrey, the Millennium Northmount mixed-use development in North Vancouver, and the 100 Braid mixed-use development in New Westminster.
“I was drawn to B+H Vancouver’s tailored approach to residential design, one that blends the service of a boutique, locally-rooted design studio supported by the resources of a global practice,” said Kermani. “Working with B+H’s architecture teams, while also leveraging CHIL’s extensive interiors portfolio, provides tremendous opportunity to bring value to the residential market through our integrated offering.”
