“All architecture is shelter, all great architecture is the design of space
that contains, cuddles, exalts, or stimulates the persons in that space. - Philip Johnson”

The Team

AlexAlex Lianos

Following his studies in mechanical engineering, Alex Lianos, like his father, decided to pursue a career in architecture. Since completing his studies, he has gained a wealth of experience in his field and managed some very distinguished construction projects throughout North America but mainly in the Greater Toronto Area and New York City.

Alex began his career in the 1990s working for a Toronto based Millwork company on private houses and high-end commercial spaces in Canada and USA. In the early 2000s, however, Alex began seeking a richer architectural vocabulary that would be more accessible to the public. He soon drew remarkable attention from clients with his input in the designs of several large public buildings and commercial spaces. It was then that Alex decided it was time to branch out on his own and start his company. First, opening the doors as a manufacturing facility for highly customized architectural millwork for exclusive commercial interiors throughout Toronto, Alex has grown Lianos Group to provide a well-rounded array of design and construction services, some of which he himself specializes in; architectural design, millwork (cabinetry/kitchen) design, and construction project management. Alex’s approach is driven by a consistent design philosophy, rather than a predetermined house style. He works to create highly detailed solutions which are functional and precisely suited to the specific context of a client’s project. Over the course of years, Alex continues to assiduously gather around him a team of diverse disciplines. Under his inspired guidance, the team has realised projects that have redefined how we live in public and in private.

Sandra has designed residences and commercial spaces, but more over, she has shared her love and knowledge and creativity with them to turn her clients into meaningful art collectors


Office Team

As a management based company, we take care of the entire project on behalf of the owner. The process begins with the design team going to work for our clients. We walk with the owner through the design process of the project always taking into consideration schedules, budgets, and special construction requirements early on in the game. Once the project is defined, our project management services take action. We take care of the scheduling of trades and material procurement on the project, manage revisions along the way, and handle all the administration necessary. Our expertise ensures unparalleled dedication to detail throughout every phase of the project thereby avoiding costly changes during construction. As the owners’ representative, we ensure that their needs are met and that they are completely informed as the project proceeds, making the final turnover effortless.


Construction Team

Our construction services organically compliment our strong management approach, giving our client the confidence that their project will be completed to their specifications by a competent and professional organization. Taking their instruction from our office team, the selection of the most suitable subtrades and suppliers are assembled for every one of our projects ensuring quality workmanship and adherence to schedule. Our team is capable of handling a wide range of projects including commercial (service and retail), multi-storey new construction, retrofit and renovations, and turnkey ventures.

the ensemble of the rooms should then be carefully considered
