ZO1 is a group of passionate architects who has extensive design and development experience in Ontario. Bonnie Chan and Derek Leung confounded the progressive architectural practice in 2020, with a desire to design responsible, sustainable, economically viable communities with creative design solutions. We believe in build-able architecture and place making focusing on end users experience. We treasure each development opportunity whether it is of large-scale mixed-use intensification development or a simple house. Bonnie and Derek and their senior staff have in-depth knowledge and construction experience in multi-use residential condo, rental (affordable and purpose-built ),senior, luxury office, retail, hotel and master planning on high density urban and suburban communities. Our strength is to move a project from a hand sketch to built architecture. The excitement often comes from discovering the hidden development opportunities specific to each site, and physically realizing each client’s vision with the aesthetics and urban built form custom-tailor to their branding and fits the characters of its existing neighborhood. We strongly believe in the power of teamwork: that each member of the development process has something special to offer, and that every stakeholder, client, city official and consultant involved is a winner in this journey.
