At ACDF, we have an uncompromising ambition to be both responsible and inventive, both visionary and generous, to ultimately bring beauty to everyone. Good design can capture the imagination, but great design offers something more generous: it stirs the heart.
Under the direction of Maxime-Alexis Frappier, Joan Renaud, and Etienne Laplante Courchesne, the 95-person studio is deeply rooted in solid know-how and a joie de vivre. Our mission is to deliver highly tailored, design-savvy projects at any scale across all typologies. In our architectural atelier, we are energized by constraints (budget, site, material) and craft poetry from pragmatism.
With its creative energy and its broad expertise, ACDF designs inspiring spaces in which North American pragmatism meets European flamboyance. Every creation is a careful response to a project’s objectives and constraints to mobilize its full, and often unseen, potential.
