About - Juxta

Helping clients manage and execute their vision brings our principals satisfaction. Focusing on client experience helps us build great relationships.

Juxta Architects brings together principals with a combined four decades of experience, who are passionate about design, heritage architecture, and building science. By bringing these skill sets together in one practice, clients can expect a deep understanding of the art and science of built spaces and the personalized experience only a boutique firm can offer.

Whether renovating, adding space or building new projects, Juxta turns client visions into realities. Our practice centres on four core service areas: architectural design, building science, investigations and studies, and heritage conservation.

Principals Bruno and Stefan have worked on a wide range of residential and institutional projects locally in Ottawa-Gatineau, elsewhere in Canada and internationally. They take pride in offering a seamless experience for clients, from early concept to construction completion.

Amanda Parkinson, Intern Architect



Amanda has worked in many different firms across Canada, in a range of sectors from commercial and residential through to educational and institutional. She has nearly 5 years of practical experience in architecture that is complemented with 3 years of hands-on experience in construction that has shaped her understanding of how projects come together and given her an affection for the smaller details.

Her master’s thesis, completed at the University of Waterloo, focused on researching how a building’s history, value, and use influence its future outcome. She has a focused curiosity and enjoys the process of continuous learning that the profession provides.
