Drawn to the belief that architecture creates a positive impact at both the macro and micro level, Karla uses design as a way to provoke feelings and guide behaviours in order to benefit people and the future of our cities.

A licensed architect, she brings over 10 years’ experience working within the mixed-use, residential, commercial, and educational sectors.

Joining BDP Quadrangle in 2016, Karla has been involved with many of our mixed-use projects including 332 Bloor Street West , CG Tower, which is a 60-storey landmark residential building in the Vaughan Metropolitan Centre,  Abeja District, a three-tower residential development as part of the Vaughan Master Plan, North on Bayview, a townhouse community and two tower mixed-use residential complex in Richmond Hill; and 3434 Lawrence Ave. East, a 600+ unit mixed use with public space development in Scarborough.

An active member of BDP Quadrangle, Karla serves as a mentor to many in the studio, curates the material library and provides project lead training to newcomers in that role.
