Sidney Bregman (b at Warsaw, Poland) and George Frederick Hamann (b at Toronto 14 June 1928), architects. The partnership, founded in Toronto in 1953, is active across North America primarily in the design and construction of health-care facilities (Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, and the Ottawa General Hospital) and of commercial and retail space.

Alone or in joint venture, the firm has designed over 2.8 million square metres of office accommodation, much of it in downtown Toronto: the Toronto Dominion Centre with John B. Parkin Associates; the Eaton Cenre with the Zeidler Partnership; Harbour Square; the Simpson Tower; and the 72-storey First Canadian Place.
