Get to Know the People on Preston

Nicholas Caragianis

“We were established in 1993 and have been in the Preston Street Area since then, starting in the Commerce Tower at 333 Preston, and now at 137 Pamilla. We chose the Little Italy area because it’s a mixed-use neighbourhood and great location: access to O Train, the Queensway, Dow’s Lake skating, walking and amazing floral displays, and all the wonderful local businesses. Our office on Pamilla is ideally located at the end of the street along the O Train pathway, which we often use to circulate up and down Preston. The staff really enjoy the neighbourhood amenities.”

“The office consists of a staff of 12, providing architectural services from coast to coast in Canada for site investigations, renovations and building construction. The office is involved in commercial, industrial, heritage, mixed-use and multi-residential projects, with a great deal of hospitality and food services work.”

“I’m a third generation architect and my wife, Sarah Murray, is a second generation architect. We purchased the Pamilla building when it was a general contractors’ warehouse and have enjoyed engaging with the neighbours and watching families grow. We also enjoy when our neighbor on Pamilla, Shine, holds an outdoor block concert in their parking lot.”

“My mother, Eva Caragianis, is a retired architect and town planner. At age 89, she still works during the warmer five months on projects at the office; designing residential projects with traditional trace and pencil. Sarah’s mom, Jane, oversees the lovely front garden plantings.”
