When Honglin Cui, the founder of the firm, began the business, his main aim was the provision of full architectural services for various types of residential, commercial and institutional projects. Over the years, the team’s considerable experience has brought new partners, new opportunities and new potential on an international stage. The Broadview approach has always been to emphasis innovative design alongside ecologically and economically sound solutions for projects. The clients who turn to the team for support have come to expect a responsive approach that takes into account environment, regional culture, site conditions, programs, and budgets. This professional attitude has opened the doors for the firm to conduct projects outside of Canada, with the continued success of the firm allowing the team to open an affiliated office in Beijing, China with KKL Partnership Architects. The secret of Broadview’s success has come from the team’s enormous wealth of experience. Before he founded Broadview, Honglin spent 18 years honing his craft and gaining expertise at some of the leading Canadian architectural firms including Robbie/Young + Wright Architects, Kohn Partnership Architects, Diamond Schmitt Architects, and Chamberlain Architects. The full service has is able to offer to clients comes from tackling a range of different architectural aspects at these firms. Preliminary planning concept, site plan application, building permit application, construction documents and contract administration are all areas in which he and the Broadview team can assist in, ensuring a smooth process of construction for all. Alongside Honglin are two partners, who have joined the firm in order to expand its operational horizons. Yang Li is a class one registered architect who has worked across the world in China, the United Kingdom, and Canada. His extensive experience designing urban design, urban complex projects, cultural parks, tourism parks, residential communities, high-end apartments, and hotels has been a major boon to the firm’s work in China, where many of the projects are based around new housing developments on a grand scale. A more recent addition to the team is Carol Jin of JIN Architect. The firm was established in 2007 with a strong focus on high- B end custom home and cottage projects in both architectural and interior design, as well as project management and the merger has been of immense benefit to both parties. Carol’s fluency in both Mandarin and English demonstrates perfectly how she has been able to infuse eastern design sensibilities with western building technologies and aesthetics. Where Broadview thrives, it is where it is able to work alongside other organisations. This, more than anything, shows how strong the firm is, able to hold its own while partnering with new people. This approach has allowed the team to greatly expand its client base while enhancing its many abilities as a firm.
