Design Approach and Philosophy
Our Mission is to provide a humanistic architecture that is well related to its surrounding area.
Character, quality and functional requirements of the client and the end user are essential ingredients that give rise to form, planning, and choice of materials.
Hierarchy of spaces and a balance of open and closed spaces, while maintaining visual interest, are essential planning design ingredients.
Contrast with light, texture, the marriage of interior and exterior spaces, along with good details, are characteristics of our work.
We believe that modernism, originality, as well as respect for heritage and local tradition, are equally important parts of the language of architecture.
These ingredients, combined with simplicity, practicality and good economic sense, together give birth to ...

M. Nehad (Ned) Allam, Principal, began his career in the world-renowned architectural firm of Hugh Newell Jacobsen.
In 1976 he came to Canada with Project Planning to collaborate with a major developer on 3 large international resort projects. Southern Pacific Properties was run at that time by Peter Munk and David Gilmor.
The first of these developments was located near the great pyramids of Giza in Egypt. In addition to a large hotel complex, it entailed a 25,000 acre fishing area. Strict guidelines were required to maintain purity of the environment and the cultural setting of the pyramids. The urban part of the development was 3.5 km. away from the pyramids in an area carefully selected so as not to impact the view.
