dkstudio architects inc. is a premier international design atelier founded in 2007 by principals Dmytriy Pereklita and Karen Mak with offices in Toronto, Vancouver, and Hong Kong.
Built on a distinguished portfolio of luxury retail projects, the firm’s ability to collaborate with a global spectrum of professionals and trades allows for holistic delivery of comprehensive projects that balance design, sustainability, budget, and execution through the design process.
Every project is a cultural, spatial, and material exploration that aspires to raise the bar, challenge convention, and shift industry paradigms in the areas of living, working, and retail design. An original and invigorating approach is taken towards the adaptation of new technology to create rich, thoughtful, and environmentally responsible projects. Taken in stride with the speed and complexity of contemporary life, dkstudio continues to seek a dynamic synergy between the time-honored tradition of fine craftsmanship and a passion for the ever-changing flux of the built environment.
"From the first meeting it was clear we had the best partners with Dmytriy and Karen. After briefing them on our vision, they presented an amazing design that truly captured the essence of what we were trying to do"
