About Us

What distinguishes an award winning architect in a crowded design marketplace? In a word: the architect must be a good listener!

It has to be a given that the architect has to have a good sense of vision, proportion, and design, and have the skill and experience to capture the clients’ ideas and take them beyond their wildest dreams. Only through a thorough understanding the of the client’s goals, and achieving high design standards within the real world context of fiscal constraint, complex approvals, and existing urban and/or building fabrics, can an architect add the maximum value through his or her involvement.

At Gabor Associates: Architecture, Urban Design, and Interiors, the principal, Peter A. Gabor, Architect MRAIC and his longstanding professional support staff are dedicated to understanding the client’s needs, and fulfilling the functional design within a framework of design excellence in, style, finish, and contextual response. To us, a project is not truly satisfying unless the client is as proud of the design as we are.

Peter has over thirty years of architectural, urban design, and interior design experience, both locally and internationally, for both public and private clients. Projects range from residential additions, renovations, and new homes, to town housing and condominium projects, to commercial, mixed use, and seniors developments of every scale. In addition, the firm has large scale urban design experience in and around Toronto, Ontario, and New York and Michigan in the United States.

Peter Gabor’s experience as a Charter Member of the Congress for New Urbanism has also taken him to exciting complex urban design assignments in Central and South America, and Eastern Europe. His team has experience in leading or participating in large multidisciplinary teams to accomplish urban restoration or expansion projects

Gabor Associates, established in February 2003 is a successor firm to Gabor + Popper Architects, where Peter was the Senior Principal for over twenty five years. The firm was rewarded with numerous Canadian and American Design Awards for which Peter Gabor was project architect, including the Governor General’ Award, and the International Project of the Year from the American Home Builders Association.
