Akb Architects is the award-winning, internationally acclaimed, Toronto-based architecture studio of Robert Kastelic and Kelly Buffey. Dedicated to the practice and art of building, their quest to capture the poetic and ineffable qualities of space is what drives and focuses the studio’s design process. The work of Akb Architects has been featured in numerous international publications, including Dezeen, Designlines, Atrium Magazine, and The Globe and Mail.
Engaged by Akb, Vanderbrand developed and executed a comprehensive strategy that refocused the studio in a way that would enhance global brand recognition. Repositioning the studio formerly known as Atelier Kastelic Buffey as Akb Architects provided a modern naming solution that would better reflect their capabilities and purpose. The new brand identity and strategy establishes a sense of clarity, and allows for consistency across various platforms and scales; from digital design to environmental signage.
