As a Design Principal, Duff is responsible for developing the creative initiatives and generating ideas that form the foundation of the design. He is involved throughout all phases of the project to ensure that his design vision remains strong and consistent at every level of detail and construction. His attention to detail and sensitivity to program integration plays an important role in the development of a design.

Since joining the firm in 1996, Duff has worked on a number of civic, institutional, recreation and community-oriented projects. In 2008, Duff was awarded the prestigious Ontario Association of Architects Award of Excellence as well as an Athletic Business Facility of Merit Award for his innovative design of the Recreation, Athletics and Wellness Centre at the University of Toronto, Mississauga.

Since 1945, the Toronto Studio of Perkins+Will has been recognized as a leading designer of higher education, civic, sports + recreation and corporate facilities in both Canada and internationally.

This team of architects, interior designers, and specialists work closely with our clients to transform their understanding and vision into places that tangibly represent their organization. Together, they explore options to increase productivity, creativity and profitability, and to improve health, sustainability, comfort and flexibility. Through good design they establish projects that offer value for investment.
