Dustin Hooper

M.Arch, OAA

Associate

Dustin joined Montgomery Sisam in 2007 and was appointed an Associate in 2017. Dustin is a skilled architect and seasoned Project Manager with 17 years industry experience. Dustin’s approach to every project emphasizes clear, consistent communication, technical foresight and user-centred design. He works diligently with his teams to ensure they are sufficiently agile, flexible and resilient to respond quickly and constructively to project demands from kick-off through close-out. And he equips his clients with the confidence they need to navigate the challenges of design and development today.

Dustin has worked extensively in the housing and higher education sectors, with several complex and high-profile projects to his name. He has played a particularly instrumental role in developing Montgomery Sisam’s long-term care portfolio, helping lead industry-defining projects such as the Peel Manor Senior’s Health and Wellness Village, the first purpose-built home in Ontario inspired by the Butterfly Model and Rekai Centre Cherry Street, one of a select few urban LTC developments and the first high-rise home in Canada. Dustin also speaks regularly at industry events, working to promote new and innovative approaches to long-term care design and delivery.

Dustin’s work in supportive housing is complemented by such projects as the Ronald McDonald House Toronto, Ronald McDonald House Atlantic, the Annex Student Residence at the University of Ottawa, the Carleton University Health Sciences building and Seneca College King Campus Expansion project, Magna Hall. With every new brief, he demonstrates his exceptional capacity for looking holistically at project parameters and delivering solutions wherein the physical and functional performance of a building are carefully calibrated with the quality of design and experience it offers.

Dustin is a former recipient of the prestigious RAIC Student Medal. Following the completion of his Master of Architecture, he has continued to be involved in architectural education. He has served as a guest critic on several design review panels and a member of the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB) Accreditation Team.
