Chester Rennie
Associate at SvN Architects + Planners


Chester is a landscape designer with over eight years of experience. He enjoys exploring the hard edge of the technical constraints of a project in order to discover the elements of specificity and chance that invite variety and beauty into the work. He has worked at the small scale of exhibition and furnishing design to larger scale public space interventions and proposals. Notable project involvement includes work on Sutton Transitional Housing Georgina, Cedarcroft Infill in Toronto, and 1530 Dundas Street East in Mississauga, as well as The Bentway, CIBC Square, DFALD, and Mouth of the Creek Park.

Chester holds a Bachelor of Humanities, Classics and Religion from Carleton University and a Masters of Landscape Architecture from the University of Toronto where he was awarded the ASLA certificate of Merit. He has also completed a certificate program in sustainable building design and construction at Fleming College.
