Caroline Robbie to retire as Principal after more than 40 years in practice


BDP Quadrangle congratulates Caroline Robbie, who will be retiring effective 31 December 2023. Caroline’s distinguished career has been marked by creativity, leadership and transformative design, and she has been a driving force in expanding the design profile of BDP Quadrangle in the field of interior design.

During her 16 years with the firm, including the last eleven years as Principal, Caroline has played a significant role in shaping the firm's vision and contributing to its reputation as a leader in multidisciplinary design. She has had a hand in a number of design-forward and award-winning projects, including Artscape Daniels Launchpad, OCAD U CO, Corus Entertainment, Deluxe studios in Toronto, Los Angeles and New York, and 60_80 Atlantic. Her role as a thought leader in the industry and in workplace design was strengthened by conceptual design installations at major exhibitions and industry events. She leaves the leadership of the interiors, media environments and retail groups in the capable hands of BDP Quadrangle Principal Greg Livingstone along with the other talented members of those teams.

"Caroline's retirement marks the start of a new era, and we are immensely grateful for her contributions to BDP Quadrangle and the broader design community. Her passion for creating spaces that inspire and resonate with people has left an indelible mark on our firm," said Les Klein, Principal, Co-founder and Studio Head at BDP Quadrangle.

"I have been proud to be part of the transformation of BDP Quadrangle during my time here” Caroline said “and I am looking forward to exploring many other creative outlets in the years to come."

Caroline’s legacy will endure through the projects she has championed and the impact she has had on the firm's culture. Her retirement marks the culmination of an illustrious career in interior design, and the entire BDP Quadrangle family extends its warmest wishes to her for the next chapter.
