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 several large-scale urban projects throughout the GTA, including a 1 million sf urban mixed-use commercial office complex and several residential mid-rise buildings. Gabriel Fain is an expert in adaptive reuse of existing buildings with a particular focus on additions and renovations. Many of the firm’s 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 completed fourplex rental project on Rhodes Avenue are examples of these types of explorations. Recent projects have advanced the new typology of laneway houses with several projects either built or currently under construction.
