SYLVAIN R. SIMARD
AND ATTENTIVE ARCHITECT
I have practiced architecture for almost 25 years. As an outgoing and very social person, I aim to build long term relationships and get to know my clients on a first name basis. Genuinely driven, I enjoy working on all aspects of a project, from volumetric concepts to comprehensive technical details. What motivates me is to surround myself with the best team and to continuously develop a versatile expertise in my domain.

ARCHITECT PROJECT MANAGER... DETERMINED AND ORGANIZED
I love architecture and I want to go far in this domain. I do not shy away from challenges because I am resourceful and organized and can meet them head on. I am pleased to work in a field at the crossroads of so many disciplines! What is most motivating in my line of work is to see the final constructed product from what started off as a sketch.
DESIGNER IN ARCHITECTURE...
AND ARTIST THOUGH AND THOUGH
The blank page doesn’t scare me! On the contrary, it encourages me to go further and to give it all I've got. I love to find the soul of a project and push ideas to their fullest, even if sometimes you have to question yourself. Creating is my life!
Master in architecture 2005
I may be an expert in accounting but working in an average sized office I lend a helping hand to get all the tasks done. And that is exactly what I love about my job, to be a jack of all trades.
PERFECTIONIST AND MINDFUL
I have worked on many large and small projects. What matters to me is to provide a high-quality service, to understand exactly the needs of a client, and to find the right solution to meet those needs. Seeing that a client is satisfied, that the users of a building enjoy it, that's what motivates me.
TECHNOLOGIST IN ARCHITECTURE...
CURIOUS AND EAGER TO LEARN
Technologist for over 8 years, I like to participate actively in the creation of technical drawings. Curious and eager for knowledge, I do not hesitate to ask questions and research various topics to improve myself. Dynamic and proactive, I think that success starts with good communication!

DEEPLY AMBITIOUS AND SOCIABLE
Architect for almost a decade, I absolutely love every aspect of my profession and that's why I never want to specialize into any single category… I want to do it all and explore every facet of my domain. And if this exploration includes working on schools, I’ll be all the happier!
CURIOUS AND PROACTIVE
What stimulates me is to contribute to the design of thoughtful living spaces adapted to each site. My versatility and adaptability allow me to get involved in projects, regardless of their scale. I favor a human approach, be it during the prudent integration of the building in the environment, or in the implementation of the smallest details. To achieve this, I invest myself fully in each task entrusted to me with rigor and thoroughness.

BUILD HERITAGE ENTHUSIAST
I have an expertise in building maintenance, conversion, reuse and restoration with a distinct interest in masonry. Every building has a story and a role to play in our communities and I am passionate about bringing these buildings in line with new and contemporary uses all while respecting their origins.
AND PARTNER SINCE DE BEGINNING
I have been practicing architecture for more than 20 years and my experience led me to design many daycares and early childhood centers. It is also through this kind of project that I had the chance to collaborate with the SIMARD architecture team. A long-time partner and colleague of Sylvain, I have witnessed the evolution of his firm and it is always with great joy that we share our common passion: architecture.
CHIEF OPERATION OFFICER...
AND CURIOUS MULTITASKER
I describe myself as a toolbox full of specialized tools. What motivates me is finding the right ways to face the challenges ahead. Always looking for a new skill to learn, I like to work on all aspects of a company to help optimize the workflow.
Ms.Eng 2012, MSc.M. 2013
We love team work!
A blank page does not scare us, on the contrary, we like to take on new challenges. That's why we created a dedicated team to take on these challenges: SIMARD Atelier. Based in Aix-Les-Bain, France, SIMARD Atelier is specialized in design and conceptual architecture.
The team is in constant contact with SIMARD Architecture for the conceptual phases of their projects. SIMARD Atelier actively participates in international architecture competitions.
Working for a common goal and with the same standards in quality, the SIMARD group will bring solutions to all your wildest ideas!
When our projects require in-depth expertise in interior design, we systematically work with FOR Design Planning, a firm specialized in office development. This team of interior designers, under the direction of André Davignon, develops adapted spaces depending on the client's values and specific needs.
Like at SIMARD architecture, they take the time to do it right and are convinced that an attentive listening and a good analysis of the clients' needs are key to a successful project. In fact, we get on so well with them that we even decided to work under the same roof.
FOR DESIGN PLANNING
The safety of buildings and especially the respect of fire safety standards and regulations is an important issue for most of our clients. That's why we have developed a strong relationship with the experts Technorm. Recognized as a leader in this field, Technorm has earned a distinguished reputation through its relationships with professionals and regulatory agencies.
In most of our new building mandates or for alternative method negotiations, we team up with Technorm to ensure that we deliver a project that complies in every respect with the governing regulations.
