Merike Bauer was born in Canada in 1975. An award winning student at the University of Toronto, she received her Professional Bachelor of Architecture in 2002. In 2005 she and partner Stephen Bauer, launched Reigo & Bauer, a design office that has been widely published and recipient of numerous awards.
Working closely with partner, Stephen Bauer, on all aspects of design, Merike’s success in heading the project management for their projects is owed to her strength in delicately balancing design goals, on site forces, and strict budgets. Her passion for finishes and furniture have allowed Reigo & Bauer’s work to bridge architecture and interior design seamlessly, delivering cohesive projects that carry design concepts from the overarching architectural ideas down to the finest details during the furnishing of the project.
As a compliment to the design practice, Merike launched Are & Be in 2011, an architectural finishes showroom with a curated collection of carpet and wall coverings.
A frequent guest lecturer for the Professional Practice courses at both Waterloo University and University of Toronto, Merike has also lectured on the work of Reigo & Bauer for the AGO; the Toronto Society of Architects; and the London Society of Architects.
