We are D+H Architects Inc.
Architectural Studio in Orangeville, Ontario
D+H Architects Inc. (formerly Dickinson + Hicks Architects Inc.) is a long-established architectural firm providing prime consultant services for place of worship, senior’s housing and education clients. Our firm is organized such that the principal partners maintain a direct connection and on-going relationship with the client. Not only do they engage with clients at meetings, they are intimately involved in the workflow of their project on a day-to-day basis - from design concept to opening day. It is critical to have a strong partner-client link that results in effective communication and subsequently a successful project. Our goal is to ensure the needs of the client become a reality in their new facility.
A successful building project only happens with teamwork comprised of a Client who knows their needs, an Architect who will listen and creatively respond, and a Builder who cares about time-frame, quality of work and cost of the project.

"We have just finished the renovation of our 140 year old building. I am happy to recommend the work of D+H Architects Inc. without reservation. As I think of their work, the words artistry and function come to mind. They worked hard to design the kind of building that would be functional and appropriate to our needs. The building is working well and is without significant flaws."
