Sherbourne Common Wins ASLA Honor Award

PFS Studio is thrilled to have won an ASLA award for Toronto’s Sherbourne Common. Sherbourne is one of the first LEED Gold certified parks in Canada. We integrated many sustainable practices into the park design, including an extensive stormwater treatment program.

The conceptual design for Sherbourne Park on the Toronto Waterfront is built upon the abstraction of an iconic Canadian lake and its edge landscape composed of the woods, the water, and the green.

“This is an example of the landscape driving development. You build the public space first and the rest will follow”

“The designer handled different scales to accommodate both children and adults.”

“This is a great project. It has a good feel and will age beautifully.”
