Profile | About Piccini Architect

Piccini Architect is a “full-service” architectural office that provides professional consulting services for new construction, renovation, restoration and addition projects. We are currently located in offices in Port Hope’s Heritage District at 148 Walton Street.

Our approach to design is essentially contemporary in nature, with the subtle influence of classical architectural tradition. Each project begins with a thorough investigation and understanding of context, and culminates with a design solution that is functional, has a sense of clarity and elegance, and most importantly, provides comfort to its users.

Service and Client Satisfaction

We recognize the importance of providing a personal level of service to our clients, from a project’s inception through to the completion of construction. Client satisfaction is the result of the design team’s careful investigation of programmatic needs, thorough execution of the creative design process, and attention to detail during the preparation of construction documents.

Team Approach

The success and quality of every project lies in a collaborative team-based approach, where the exchange of ideas throughout each phase of the project is encouraged between members of the design team, our client or client representatives, and the builder or contractor. This approach consistently results in design solutions meeting or exceeding client expectations, and that are completed on schedule and within budget. Call us to discuss assembling a design team for your project.


Piccini Architect was founded in 1993 by architect Reno Piccini, a graduate of the University of Waterloo, with over 30 years of experience in the architectural profession. The practice has successfully completed a wide variety of project types, ranging from corporate commercial, high-profile retail, private and public institutional, heritage renovation and restoration, to custom residential projects. Originally located in North Toronto, the practice moved to Port Hope, where it has been serving clients since 1999. A partial list of clients in alphabetical order follows.
