Gabriel Fain, Principal Architect OAA

Gabriel Fain Architects Inc. is a young and energetic multi-disciplinary design office operating within the fields of architecture, urbanism, art and research. The office is currently involved in a number of large scale urban projects throughout the GTA including a 1 million square feet urban mixed-use commercial and office campus adjacent to the Etobicoke Creek. Many of the firms projects are strategically focused on the so-called ‘missing middle.’ This includes several infill projects specifically geared towards addressing Toronto’s urgent rental crisis. A recently completed mixed use rental building on Broadview Avenue and a soon to be constructed fourplex rental project on Rhodes Avenue are examples of these types of explorations. Recent projects have also explored the new typology of laneway houses with two projects currently in construction. Gabriel Fain Architects often engages in cross-disciplinary projects including a recent collaboration with Canadian artist Harley Valentine on the winning competition scheme for a large scale public artwork at the Zonta Meadows Park in Mississauga.
