Future Simple Studio is a Montreal-based architecture office founded in 2018. Our team consists of architects and designers joined together by the ambition of crafting instinctive, human-focused habitats at various scales. We have a wide range of capabilities and experience, including commercial, residential, installations, furniture and digital projects.

Our design approach is guided by a disciplined exercise of simplicity. Our built work has been recognized for its careful attention to detail, inventive space planning and harmonious use of materials. Through a considered exploration of form, texture and colour, we create environments that evoke a visceral joy and calm.

Collaborating with our clients is one of the greatest privileges of our practice—we make it our priority to be reliable creative partners, add enduring solutions, and foster consistently positive and fluid communications using the latest digital tools.

Our past work and partnerships give us the capacity to handle large architecture and design mandates. We choose to maintain a small, dedicated team and accept a limited number of projects. This ensures that all of our production is led directly by our founder, Christine Djerrahian and partner, Ernst van ter Beek. We are located in Montreal and New York, but engage with clients globally.
