Our Team
Alison McNeil Partner, Interior Designer BEDS | MArch | CIDQ Toronto

Alison joined us as a partner in our Toronto studio following a 14-year tenure as a design director with another firm. One of our national interior design leaders, she focuses on hospitality, retail, and corporate workplace projects. Alison approaches each design challenge with unmatched rigor, an eye for detail, and bold pragmatism.  Her roster of award-winning work illustrates her belief that all great projects start with understanding the brand’s urban, building, and cultural context in conjunction with the market, business aspirations, and client’s needs. Allison’s ability to move seamlessly between all building scales and disciplines influences her integrated design solutions, from master planning and programming to the refined detail of a custom chair.

A genuinely passionate designer, Alison has a talent for turning abstract ideas into inspiring built environments. Over her 20-plus-year career, she has developed an impressive body of work defining global brands. Some of her most notable projects include the Four Seasons Toronto d|bar, the Four Seasons Toronto Spa, the Four Seasons Resort Whistler, and the JW Marriott Edmonton ICE District. Alison is always hands-on and works closely with her clients to design beautiful spaces that exceed their expectations. 

Alison also currently serves as a member of the Governing Council, an elected body within the Partnership, responsible for the stewardship in the long-term interests and wellbeing of DIALOG.
