With lots of positive changes happening at Equilibrium, we took the opportunity to refresh our branding to reflect the exciting and ambitious future ahead.
Founding Principal Eric Karsh said “We are very excited to launch our new website and branding as a way to celebrate our recent return to independent ownership, but also to mark a new era of growth with the incorporation of a branch in Seattle, WA and Paris, France. The new simple and contemporary branding reflects our approach to design with a nod to our mass timber expertise, while the new website highlights a small fraction of our award-winning work over the past 20+ years. With many exciting projects lined up in the coming year, we are looking forward to continued creative cooperation and success with our current clients, and very much looking forward to developing fulfilling new relationships.”
Take a look through our new website, where we outline our approach to building design, introduce the team and showcase a few of our favourite projects from the Equilibrium archive, while taking a deeper dive in to some in the Case Studies section.
