Committed to a
Style & Philosophy
That is Unique & Engaging

Raimondo + Associates Architects Inc. (RAAI) was established with a solid commitment to a style and philosophy of practice that is unique and engaging. Providing award-winning architectural services, the firm has amassed over twenty-five years of experience with retained files and drawings of various project types and complexities.

Our approach stresses the “Team” effort, ensuring that all parties are involved from the very
onset of their project, including the Client, a vital part of the 'Design Team'.

While it is true that the client relies on the professionalism and the expertise of the Architect to form the balance of the Project team, the Client brings their own intimate knowledge of the operational and functional requirements for their project. These requirements are best expressed by their active participation in the space programming and design process; analyzing the issues along with the Team, and reacting and commenting on proposed alternatives. At RAAI, clients are guaranteed that their project will be overseen by either the principle or an associate of the Firm.

Our Firm has a proven depth in staffing that is unsurpassed in the Niagara Peninsula. Our full-time staffs are of an intermediate or senior level, with experience levels ranging from 16 to 30 years. Our Team also includes an interior designer, providing the client with interior design solutions by connecting the exterior design and interior harmoniously. This creates building friendly environments that meet the needs of both the clients and their users.  RAAI is committed to using innovative methodologies and BIM technology via Revit that increases efficiency reduces interferences and increases client satisfaction, RAAI continues to evolve, and strive for continued “Excellence.”

We Are Innovative

Our design team uses Building Information Modeling (BIM), the newest and most efficient design software on the market. It is a valuable tool which will be an added asset to any project, providing invaluable 3D visualization and effective communication between the design team, the contractor and the client.  Throughout our design approach we are also committed to excellence and quality of craft, we intend to design aesthetically pleasing, world class projects that will make any client proud.


We have the ability to provide our clients with a variety of in-house added value services through our trained staff. We can provide clients with interior design services such as material and finishes selections, through our in-house interior designer.
