About US


Creative Solutions Through the Power of Design

Melillo Architects incorporated is committed to excellence in client service and design. We offer a full range of architectural services including master planning, interior design, building design, project management and administration. our broad experience has ranged from new construction to building extensions and renovations and includes feasibility studies and life safety building assessments. In particular, our experience has encompassed technically challenging work and projects requiring a high level of detail. We have worked with a variety of institutions, community groups and public organisations, as well as private companies and individuals.

Our Portfolio includes schools, libraries, office buildings, commercial, retail, showrooms, industrial and residential design. Building renovations and the upgrade of historic and older building stock has also comprised much of our work. Many of our projects have involved site planning and landscaping, as well as the design of lighting, furniture, and fitments.

We believe in a fluent balance between design and the various technical aspects of building. There should be a balance between project and environmental requirements to achieve aesthetically effective design solutions. This is what we believe to be the foundation of sustainability.

Since December 1988, we have developed a diverse portfolio by focusing on the design process rather than on specialization. We are proud of our approach to design, our in-house understanding of building codes, and our building science and construction expertise. From this holistic approach to architecture, we are able to achieve sometimes award-winning design solutions that are relevant, sensitive and sustainable.

We are members in good standing with the Ontario Association of Architects as well as the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. Our professional liability insurance is with ProDemnity and we have no history of claims against us.

Our firm prides itself on maintaining an open dialogue with our clients to ensure that our design process is tailored with the goal of delivering solutions that exceed expectations. As a potential future client, you can have confidence in the fact that even the smallest of details will be addressed and all possible design solutions will be considered. We work with client budgets to achieve cost effective and sustainable solutions. We work closely with consultants, contractors and clients in establishing a team approach and an integrated design.

Senior Designer & Project Captain
M.Arch
Shahriar started his professional career in 1993 after graduating with a Masters Degree in Architecture and Urban Design. However, his design ambitions go back to years before when he started designing model airplanes as a hobby and became fascinated with the idea of high functionality and purpose-oriented design. This fascination is a driving force in Shahriar's design work.
For over 20 years, Shahriar expanded his professional knowledge and experience working in different fields of design, from historic sites and city master plans to heritage homes and commercial, institutional, and residential buildings.
Shahriar has extensive experience in building implementation and project management. His practical experience and technical vision have helped him to approach a wide variety of projects with an ability to balance design intent with construction technology.
