Kingsland + Architects Inc. is a Toronto based architectural firm formed by James Henry Craig (1888-1954) and Henry Harrison Madill (1889-1988).
The firms work was founded in 1910 as Craig and Madill Architects that spanned from 1910 to mid 1950s with all located in Toronto, but both architects built buildings on their own during that time. The firm's work stopped from 1915 to 1918 when both served overseas during World War I and ended in 1954 with the death of Craig. From 1956, it became known as by the names of Craig, Madill, Abram and Ingleson Architects, Abram and Ingleson Architects, Abram, Nowski and McLaughlin Architects & Planners, Abram/Nowski, Architects and Planners, Nowski Partners Architects, and Nowski & Kingsland Partners Architects Inc. before adopting its present name in 2001.
James Henry Craig
Craig was a fellow architecture student with Madill at the University of Toronto and worked his entire career with Madill after 1912, but had independent commissions from 1920s to 1950s with most outside of Toronto (exception was the Dominion Public Building which Craig worked with Thomas W. Fuller). He married Grace MacFarlane Morris in 1923.
Henry Harrison Madill
Madill was born in Beaverton, Ontario, but later moved to Toronto where he graduated from Jarvis Collegiate and enrolled in architecture at the University of Toronto, where he met Craig. With Craig he served with the Canadian Army from 1915 to 1918, but returned to practice after the war. Madill worked at the School of architecture at the University of Toronto from 1920 to 1975 (Dean from 1948 to 1957 and Director Emeritus in 1975). Madill's academic work prevailed over his design work after Craig's death.
