our values

They’re not just words on a page. We live them every day. It’s who we are, what we’re passionate about and the connections we make with one another.

GET INSPIRED

RN Design was founded by Rob Nicolucci in 1991 on the premise of providing residential low-rise design services to home builders across the GTA. It has since grown into one of the largest low-rise residential design firms in Canada, servicing some of the most influential home builders across Ontario and beyond. Through superior quality design and the thoughtful consideration of each project’s specific requirements, RN Design has proven to be influential in creating the best streetscapes in many regions across Ontario.
