U+A is an international design firm with offices in Toronto, Jeddah, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The firm offers comprehensive design solutions in architecture, interior design, engineering, planning and landscape architecture for all types of projects.

The firm prides itself for providing the best services in all design disciplines within resourceful initiatives and novel aesthetics. The frame-work which we chose to ground each project is with a no-nonsense approach addressing from the start of design as well the technical considerations at all levels, whether architectural, interior design, structural, MEP and in sustainability.


Constructability is a valid and relevant aspect of a building, which is so commonly ignored. We believe that in all trades, this factor plays a key role in the overall processes of any job from its inception to completion. Our determination to support this principle remains consistent throughout all stages of implementation of the design.


U+A Architects headquarters in the Middle East was established with the partnership of Pedram Rad and Pierre Martin Dufresne, both chartered architects with a combined experience of over 20 years in the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and Canada.

Already the firm has developed professional relationships with some of the most prominent promoters in the Middle East, with projects in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Qatar. In all markets U+A provides services in architecture, interior design and landscape.


U+A Architects was established in affiliation with the Toronto office JNC Architects granting uninterrupted quality services for every client internationally. For many years the Toronto office has been providing architectural services on a variety of projects such as residential from private villas to condominiums under the directorship of Joseph Campitelli, an accredited architect with the Ontario Architect Association.
