Upon walking into the studio of Myles Burke Architectural Models, the first thing you notice is the smell of fresh paint. There are a dozen or so employees milling about — working on a myriad of tasks from handcrafting tiny trees to adjusting the retractable roof of a scaled down Rogers Centre.

Since 2006, co-owners David Myles and Michael Burke have been wooing developers across North America with their intricately detailed architectural models. “People want to see the granite, the glass and the spandrel — they want to see those materials. They love the tangibility of the scale models,” said Burke.

BuzzBuzzHome took a tour of the Myles Burke workspace in Vaughan, Ontario to find out more about the construction process and what drives the company’s creativity. Be sure to check out the video above and our photos of their work.
