Denegri Bessai Studio
Denegri Bessai Studio was established in 2013 by partners Tom Bessai and Maria Denegri. The studio is built upon a rich history of collaboration. The work has won numerous design awards, and has appeared in a range of local and international publications including Toronto Life, the Globe and Mail, Canadian Architect, Azure and Plan Magazine. Projects in the studio are carefully developed through an iterative design process that combines experimental research with engaged client consultation. Extensive material testing and prototyping is a constant factor in the design work of the studio and is accomplished through the use of state-of-the art computation and fabrication techniques. This experimental practice model is supported and enhanced through teaching and research at the Daniels Faculty of Architecture at the University of Toronto alongside allied partners in academia and industry.
