We are honoured to be recognized as Designlines Magazine’s Designer of the Year!

From Designlines: “Heading a studio of just eight, Natasha Lebel and Luc Bouliane may seem to hold unlikely seats at the table of notables ushering in a new era of contemporary Canadian design. But then, Lebel & Bouliane is not your average boutique firm. For one thing, they’ve all but ignored a mainstay of modern architecture: the cube. […] Small but nimble, L&B has opted to sit out the condo boom to helm some of the city’s most exciting adaptive reuse projects.”

Luc Bouliane has been featured in May 2018's RAIC Awards Issue of Canadian Architect. 

From Canadian Architect: 

Luc Bouliane, MRAIC, a Toronto architect whose designs are inspired by the geology of Northern Ontario, will receive the 2018 Young Architect Award of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC).

“Great design and work,” said the five-member selection jury. “He’s on a different trajectory for a young office. He has pursued larger public work from the very beginning, including commercial work, which is unusual.

“His work has strong sculptural qualities,” the jury said. “It’s interesting. The spaces are dynamic in terms of composition, shapes, and forms, and the level of detail.”

The RAIC Young Architect Award recognizes architects 40 years or younger for excellence in design, leadership, and service to the profession. The award is intended to inspire other young architects to become licensed and to strive for excellence in their work.
