A RETROPSPECTIVE PORTFOLIO

For over 35 years, the award-winning firm of Ernest Collins Architect Inc. with principals Ernest Collins, AIBC and Grace Gordon-Collins, RCA; have designed homes, buildings and interiors , which can only be described as “works of art.” Ernest and Grace’s design process is informed by their backgrounds in engineering, interior design and fine arts. They both hold Masters degrees in Architecture, Ernest from Harvard and Grace from MIT.

Their signature is on many of the most beautiful, some may even say, audacious homes in Canada, Hong Kong and California. From luscious interiors to commercial, retail and exhibition projects, their work embodies a personal and distinctive point of view and an approach to design that is always intellectually rigorous and authentic. Their expansive portfolio includes several institutional projects, as well as custom furniture,  sculpture and photography.

In this collage of images, the Collins’ made the decision to highlight the creativity and diversity of the projects they have built over a lifetime of practice. What is revealed is a clarity of design, a classicism drawn from a thorough understanding of design principles, a sense of adventure, playfulness and always heart stopping beauty.
