Occupying a gleaming blue glass tower in the elegant Yorkville neighborhood, Four Seasons Hotel Toronto boasts a chic, contemporary residential design style. All rooms have a cool gray color scheme with white and gold accents and lots of neutral wood and granite stonework, most notably in the spacious bathrooms, which have luxe touches such as deep-soaking tubs.

It’s steps from fine shopping, dining and cultural activities. With a Daniel Boulud-helmed restaurant, Café Boulud Toronto, and a fashionable lounge, Dbar, you’ll eat exceptionally well.

A Four-Star spa offers some of the city’s best treatments. The hotel’s gym is flush with amenities from fruit-infused water to clothes available for borrowing to attend yoga classes.

Aside from the amenities, this flagship hotel holds another special significance — Toronto was where the Four Seasons brand launched.

neoalpha global has carried out the conceptualization, design development and site supervision of the overall FOH architectural lighting. The overall design scope included lighting design for the external façade and interior FOH spaces.

neoalpha global is owned by Alessandro Ayanian, Creative Designer and Managing Director, who has over 20 years of experience in professional lighting having worked on most project types all around the world from large hotel resorts and masterplans to bars, restaurants, government buildings, corporate offices, stadiums, and private residences.

What we do is closely related to our philosophy about the impact of light on the human experience. Our lighting design solutions are premised on an understanding of how light can change the human psyche in terms of wellness which means that it requires exceptional creativity to design and turn sophisticated design ideas into reality.

At neoalpha we believe in 5 core values: Creativity, Innovation, Quality, Passion and Delivery. Our passion to strive above and beyond is our way of life. Specific deliverables vary from project to project, but our design process is often similar. Though there is not a single or finite path to deliver our design, each process does follow a consistent set of core ideas.
