SvN is a team of architects, planners, community developers and urban designers immersed in the practical art and science of building resilient communities. We’ve revitalized industrial waterfronts, developed new forms of affordable housing, designed resilient neighbourhoods, and promoted the economic development of both rural and urban regions. Our plans, designs and strategies are both particular and flexible: they respond to the specific needs of people and their environments, but are designed to adapt and change in response to new conditions as they arise.
