Our Story .

ASAI is a small architecture firm established in 2016 by principal Alessia Soppelsa. We undertake both residential and commercial designs and offer a full spectrum of  architectural services from interior renovations and additions to new-builds. Although each of our projects is unique and custom, they all share a modern and contemporary aesthetic that is simple, inventive, fresh.

Simple, Inventive and Fresh

ASAI offers full service design – a one-stop shop, including planning, architecture and design. We can assist clients in obtaining zoning approvals with Site Plan Applications or attendance at Committee of Adjustment hearings. We will apply for building permits and can bring together a complete team of consultants, including surveyors and mechanical, electrical and structural engineers to do so. Of course, we are also happy to work with any consultants that the client may wish to include as part of the team. We provide a set number of renderings with each project. We furthermore offer interior design services for both residential and commercial projects. Simple, inventive, and fresh.  This is what inspires our designs.
