Unit A Architecture


April 25, 2003
by Canadian Architect

A new partnership in Toronto has been formed by Stewart Adams, Jeff Latto and Francesca Piccaluga. Adams and Latto worked with HOK Canada after years with A.J. Diamond, Donald Schmitt and Company and Teeple Architect, respectively. Recent work includes the design of the $4 million Northern Ontario Railroad Museum and Heritage Centre for Capreol, Ontario, near Sudbury, and a $100 million mixed mixed-use development project in Dallas, Texas that comprises an indoor ski tower with six figure-8 runs, a hotel, townhouses and office space. Structure Corp. in Toronto recently retained Unit A for the adaptive re-use of a former pasta factory in the city’s Junction neighbourhood for their office. Piccaluga has recently completed a residential addition and brings experience with community involvement in urban and building design decisions. Community centre and school projects, based on the principals’ involvement at the local level for various projects, are to form an integral part of Unit A’s work: pragmatic instances of the firm’s advocacy of the need for the active role architectural presence can play in the life of communities, and the need for a more involved public decision-making process for civic projects.
