Snyder Architects Inc. is a full-service planning and architecture firm located in Toronto. Established in 1980, the firm specializes in designing schools, long term care homes, and other supportive environments.
School design: We believe schools are places of community, dignity, meaning and academic excellence through sustainable design, flexible spaces, an emphasis on student engagement and the creation of holistic learning environments that support creativity and innovation. The firm’s extensive design capability is complemented by highly efficient delivery and implementation, strengthened by the firm’s pioneering construction management process called AMP (Architect Managed Project) delivery–successfully employed on one-third of Snyder’s educational projects– which gives clients maximum value and control of both schedule and budget.
Snyder Architects is committed to 21st Century Learning, the idea that the built environment can impact the way students learn and that the employment of emerging technologies can provide expanded learning opportunities. Through smart use of architecture and design and a student-centric philosophy the building becomes the most potent tool at an educator’s command. Natural light, animated corridors, and inviting gathering spaces make schools places that students want to be, that encourage social engagement and project-based learning as much as maximizing the value of the traditional classroom model.
