New Offices in Toronto and Ottawa

New Offices in Toronto and Ottawa

HOK begins collaborating with Urbana Architects, which was originally located in a renovated townhouse in downtown Toronto, in the 1990s.

This relationship with Urbana grows as the two firms team to serve a global telecommunications company on several major projects across Canada and worldwide. 

In 1997, after several years of collaboration, HOK and Urbana merge in a new Toronto office. To meet our clients’ requirements, HOK also opens an office in Ottawa.
