Akb Architects is a residential architecture studio based in Toronto, founded in 2004 by Robert Kastelic and Kelly Buffey. The studio is dedicated to the practice and art of building, with a focus on capturing the poetic and ineffable qualities of space.

With extensive training in both architecture and interior design, Robert and Kelly bring a comprehensive strategy to their work, resulting in buildings of exceptional resolution and refinement. They approach interior and exterior space holistically, merging building and landscape into a seamless experience that transforms the ephemeral into the tactile.

Elements such as volume, light, proportion, and materiality are carefully orchestrated to resonate and respond to each project’s unique site, context, and program. The resulting buildings are compelling in their tranquility and quiet simplicity, with warmth, elegance, and functionality. Akb Architects recognizes the importance of a collaborative process, maintaining an open dialogue with their clients to ensure that all needs and desires are met.

Meticulous research, precedent studies, and the deployment of current sustainability strategies are integral to Akb’s approach. They fuse the practical and the abstract in their architecture, resulting in creative, inspired, and enduring designs. Through their dedication to capturing the essence of space, attention to detail, and commitment to sustainability, Akb Architects creates buildings that are both exceptional and timeless.
