Profile

History
Established in 1992, Seferian Design Group (SDG) advocates a holistic approach to landscape architecture and design. SDG is an award-winning landscape architectural firm based in Burlington, Ontario with experience in public and private sectors across Canada and the U.S. SDG approaches each project with a highly skilled and integrated team of Landscape Architects that foster a collaborative and energetic approach to design. Through fearless creativity, our team believes it is both the opportunity and responsibility of design to make communities come alive. Our work inspires community, creates place-making, improves lives, sparks relationships, fosters interaction with the environment, and creates unforgettable personal moments.

Ethos
At SDG our team believes that at the core of all our work is the belief that we can do better and be better. Through design we aim to put our permanent mark on the relationship between our place in nature and nature's place in our lives. This is why our team envisions, creates, and designs spaces for life. Spaces that boldly and creatively connect us, our communities, and our environments.

Approach
Design is dynamic and our work is always influenced by a holistic vision. Our team pushes boundaries and seeks the most creative design solutions as we have learnt over our history that our clients expect fresh and unique ideas. We understand that each project requires balance between fiscal, pragmatic, and inspired realities. Each project constraint becomes a starting point for innovative design ideas. Our design process is always inspired by the project context and we combine a blend of discovery, budget, and place-making to produce projects which are sustainable, educational, and fully engage their communities. Good design makes a difference!

Culture
Our team has a shared commitment to excellence. We place strong emphasis on superior design knowledge, support, and team work. We challenge, inspire, and support each other. We are in a creative field, and working creatively is the act of turning new and imaginative ideas into reality. Our studio environment is fun, relaxed, and motivating. Our landscape architects are encouraged to explore their talents through education and community participation. SDG values our local sense of place, as well as a global consideration for sustainability and hope. We are firmly rooted within our community, but always practice with a sense of global responsibility.
