Tiles for Miles!
We’re thrilled to share that in collaboration with Ciot | Stone & Tile, our long-time project American Dream, is the winner of the 2022 Ceramics of Italy Tile Competition in the Commercial category. The competition is organized by Confindustria Ceramica (the Italian Association of Ceramics) and the Italian Trade Agency. From waterjet cut fish scale motifs in the luxury wing, to the sunburst feature pattern in the interior garden, to sweeping curves and strong angles, the project explores a range of tile treatments to create next-level design statements.
Congrats to the teams! Alla prossima!
GH+A design studios added a prestigious design award to our collection this week in Phoenix at the ICSC Global Design & Development Awards. The awards recognize outstanding achievement in design and development of marketplaces properties.

Last night, GH+A design studios won four awards at the gala event for the 14th Annual Grands Prix du Design in Montreal celebrating the top international design and architecture projects from 2020.

We made it!
The big reveal of The Avenue at American Dream is happening today. Under crystal sky arches, the luxury dream comes to life. From Hermès, to Saint Laurent, to Dolce & Gabbana, to Tiffany & Co, and Saks Fifth Avenue, The Avenue is a spectacular setting for top-tier international luxury brands. Over the past ten years, this “biggest and best-of-the-best” undertaking has been a labour of love for GH+A, from the bespoke koi scale stone floor to the glam poodle mural art, our team is overjoyed to see the project finally come to life.
Toronto’s Distillery District is now home to the first-ever FIKA Herbal Goods flagship cannabis retail experience! Housed within a 19th Century heritage building, FIKA Herbal Goods is redefining the approach to cannabis for the modern consumer. You’re invited to come on in, and “take a breather”.
We’re excited to share that two of our projects won design awards in their respective categories in the Retail Design Institute’s 50th International Design Competition. The projects represent the “best of the best” stores opened in 2020: Sprayground at American Dream in the Pop-Up category and RS No.9 Carnaby in the Specialty Softline category.
We are honored to announce that our design teams have won five awards for design excellence. GH+A design studios is a proud collaborator on the following projects: CF Chinook Centre Dining Hall, Devonshire Mall, RS No.9 Carnaby St., and Canada Goose SKP Mall.
GH+A, in collaboration with Bravado and Universal Music Group, announces the Grand Opening of RS No.9 Carnaby – the first flagship retail store for the iconic Rolling Stones on Carnaby Street in London.
We created this project as a celebration of the biggest Rock n’ Roll band ever. The modern space connects with fans through music, fashion merchandise, and a video wall projecting the band’s history up to their most recent tours.
The Rolling Stones brand was thoughtfully translated into every part of the design from materials to feature elements like a soundwave sculpture that represents the opening to the classic song, “Paint It Black”.
