RAW Design, was launched in November 2007. As one of Toronto’s most vibrant architectural studios, RAW possesses an international design sensibility and a wealth of local experience. We are a full-service architectural firm and our professional experience comprises a variety of scales and building types, varying in size from 10,000 to 1,000,000 square feet. Our portfolio includes community greenhouses and community master plans, single family houses and large multi-unit residential complexes, mixed-use projects and specialized office environments.
RAW won the OAA award for Best Emerging Practice of 2009 and our Lang Tannery Project in Kitchener, Ontario has been recognized as Best Overall Development with a 2011 Brownie Award. Principal Roland Rom Colthoff has compiled a respectable list of awards for his design work including a number of OAA Awards of Excellence (including BMW Toronto) and City of Toronto Urban Design Awards, including recently for Cube. Our approach led to the City of Toronto consulting us during the formulation of the Mid-Rise Guidelines, and Mr. Rom Colthoff currently serves as a member of the City of Toronto Design Review Panel.
